Teach Paperless Julie Carpenter, PVCC

Pros, less paper, cost effective do not buy book, have a print limit so do not have to print, Bb does not lend itself to selecting column for grading to deselect, b, being green, difficultly archiving course in Bb, need to copy, not archive, student can't lose papers, redirect student's time, teaching st a skill, most have accessibiity -at school, save dept $$

cons, no help from writing ctr if do not have paper submission, network down, cannot do assignment, cannot grade, have to do extensive training for citations, must show calculations, time element to put things on-line, Bb support useless



assignments due 1 hour before class

1 min reflection after tests

surveys often

do these on excel spreadsheets

material copyright free

textbook free printing thru bkstore

st post something real-world not "last night my friend" from news clips

Make a Wiki in Bb, Add a Campus Pack Wiki (More)i, Group Project -Class, This is our Project, Can see who edited it last, Start with a small assignment, Grade: Discussion Tool: have to post and respond to their writing partner: 25 to post and 25 to writing partner., No written feedback, do not post on first three days of week; just before assignment is due, is environment for students to connect, T pairs them up for first three wks; then st can find their own partner, St self-monitor, T rarely needs to monitor. You had better cite your source or you will not get full points. If you are slacking, students will not respond to you., St write in text language, so you need to remind them to re-learn to write academically -keep it clean, spell check, grammar -Put in instructions

Make a Campus Pack Blog, Student Blog Bio, Pix, 5 pts, class -everyone can view, column in gradebook, add new entry so they have example Elaine's Intro (tree is Image insert) do this in class so they can watch, give pre/post Bb tutorial to find out what they really know, what is their favorite (appropriate) website that is not YouTube or FaceBook or MySpace

Down With Diigo Liza Sejekora and Devon C Adams

No notecards

No sticky notes

Multiple ways to tag

tag with specific name so can find by tag name #mTech


Annotated Bibliography, All info goes in description box, highlight on web page, sticky page, discussion, must have diigo open to do this

social component, every time used, instructor gets a link -How to use diigo with students (Google Site with Devon)

work with I-pad open to annotate and highlight on and computer to type (word process on)

direct link to your annotation via diigo.

bookmarks can be made private on diigo for personal research, can be made public later. more formal presentation materials on Diigo form

the ability of students to take this with them past highschoo

diigo is great for group research, enables you to see who did what and when. great collaboration tool.

diigolet is as easy as dragging the diigolet button onto your browser

Lisa Sejkora created a Diigo group for her lit course where students posted content and evaluated (really) others work.

being able to share your "manilla envelope" via tags with all of your colleagues, students, etc enables you to extend class anywhere

referenced a small apartment. check this guy from hong kong out it's the diigo of living spaces!

@lizasejkora equates Diigo to the manilla envelop that used to hold all the copies, note cards, highlighters, in the research process

#diigo is your manilla envelope where you carry around all of your information. Not the writing process, but the storage space.

have technology but they do not use it to create.. they are passive users. Need to use technology to create and publish. Digital age. and technology use gap.
