8 o Introduction Here s how to prepare for Teach Writing With Technology : Join the class wiki and browse through the materials while you re waiting for the class start date. It is private so no one can access it but our class. This is where you will post projects, have discussions with classmates, and explore skills you ll need for class (such as how to participate in a Google Hangout). It will be a safe way to communicate with your new PLN Professional Learning Network. You will create your own digital portfolio page the first week of class and use it to reflect, journal, and embed projects completed during class. Preview the class etext, lesson plans, videos, and articles. Need help? me at Links change. For a dead link, General notes: While this is not a course in using a word processing program (such as MS Word or Google Docs) it is assumed you have basic knowledge of this skill--feel free to ask questions about them. Expect to be a risk taker. We won t rush in to solve your problems. We want you to experiment, try options, just as we ask students to do. We don t want projects to be perfect just attempted. It will assist you in finding what suits your teaching style and your class. Attaining a Certificate level in this class is based on effort, not perfection. Try-fail-try again is the characteristic of a top notch student. Welcome mistakes don t apologize for them. Fearlessly confront an error, think it through, and revel in the resolution. Use technology domain-specific vocabulary when possible. If you have an alternative approach that works better for your unique situation, let us know. Chances are, we ll be fine with it. 8
