THIS IS THE RESPONSE FROM THE 2nd WEB SEMINARS I TURNED IN…
I MADE A 67 LLL
A5a: In general, the response to the Dr. Lilly’s seminar was quite good. The major points of her talk were highlighted, and there was connection to your own learning. I wondered to what extent you found the family that Dr. Lilly referenced interesting in terms of how language about school is carried through families–from mother to daughter, brother to brother, mother to friend, and so on. What did you think of the timescales that she talked through?
The depth of the summary could be stronger in terms of what Dr. Lilly was trying to communicate about the importance of timescales.
As is required in the assignment, the article “Reading…school” was NOT an upload to this assignment. Missing: the article was not uploaded. You must include the articles so I may check for verification.
Please make sure you follow the protocol of where you acquire the videos. They must come from the list/link I provided in my instructions. I could not get a sense of what this article was about, nor could I see a link between the article and the seminar. No credit was given.
A5b: This is a fair response; it identifies some points of the web seminar, and there are three points that are identified as important to you. I wonder to what extent these points could have been articulated more clearly with examples so that I could better understand this learning.
For example, the model doesn’t dictate how to teach–I think that Dr. Luke’s point in this seminar runs much deeper than “there is no one proper way to teach.” Dr. Luke does critique different ways of teaching as represented in his four resources model. This response could be pushed for more information. For example, how would you include pragmatics?
Pragmatics is central to meaning as it provides the context in which a text is written, read, discussed and so on–I’m not sure that it can be included– pragmatics is how and why a text is introduced.
The discussion around the article and its connection to the seminar needed to be stronger. What does it mean that the “author shares the same view”?
The response needed to include examples to help me understand what you understood from viewing and reading Lukes’ work.
Missing: the article was not uploaded. You must include the articles so I may check for verification.
 
THIS IS THE RESPONSE FROM THE 1ST WEB SEMINARS I TURNED IN…
I MADE A 77 L
The response to the seminars and articles somewhat met the requirements of this assignment. There were three points identified in the seminar and a summary, and yet I wasn’t quite sure what each of these points were based upon the description. It’s nice to read that video gaming has now intrigued you but how would it fit into your class curriculum?
Integration is easier than making direct connections to what it is that we want our students to learn. Why is gaming important to literacy? What were Beavis’s points regarding this? How does gaming improve or become part of students’ literacy practices that support their learning? I wasn’t quite sure of what different statements meant in this response.
For example, why were the stats on AU interesting to you? I’m not sure I understood the statement, “online was not as prominent with online learning”–what did you mean by this? I wasn’t quite sure what you meant by “I would enjoy integrating this into my classroom…” What is “this”?
In future, when writing about the next seminars, present the summary that describes overall the concepts in the seminar, and clarify how the different points in this/these concepts were interesting to you. This response merely identifies points but does not clarify why these points were important. While “This was an amazing way to introduce critical thinking for writing and reading”–what about Assassin’s Creed got the girls writing/reading? “It is about engagement….” What is “it”?
When responding to the next seminar, write as if the reader has not read or viewed the pieces in the responses. In this way, the writing will be clearer and more substantive.
