Slides on a board

internal twitter allows students to actively interact with the lecture, tags, comments, favorites, notes, links, 2-3 weeks post lecture

The Radical Portfolio, No assignments, No deadlines, No exams or tests, No >>game of school<<

A catalogue of activities, students document online portfolio system, We assign points for good work, No single activity is more than 10% of the final grade, most are <5%, hand-in limit/week, eliminates student end of semester rush

Students can review contributions of their peers via double blind reading, Students can also ask for review before handing in activity, peers, teachers

A new suggested activity is accepted is worth +2 points


reverse bell curve

a catalogue of activities can subvert a degree, i.e. let me learn what I want to learn to make me successful

Student's collection of work is online, archived forever, can be used in the future for job interviews/examples, Allows students to build a working portfolio WHILE still in school
