Greetings all – I am working on grading your planning assignments. I must confess that everything this past week has seemed to take three times as long as usual. I will be super honest: I have felt overwhelmed at times. We are all dealing with varying levels of chaos and change due to the coronavirus. I want you all to be safe and well.
I want to check in and see how you all are doing and offer some thoughts on the rest of our time together.
I would like to offer extensions on the next blog post:
- Reflection on New Models, New Horizons OR Mobile Devices & Connections: 3/22
- Reflection on Infinite Learning Modules (Student choice of topic area): 4/19
Let’s change to both should be published by April 19. That way you can work on them as time permits. I know many of you may be ready to write up the next one – this will give you breathing room.
The last big assignment is the Director’s Brief due 4/26. Let’s make the new due date anytime up to 5/3.
Finally, the Symposium entry can go up anytime the week of May 4 to May 10 and you van combine your final reflection with the Symposium.
NOTE: The Symposium does not have to be a ton of work or another complete project – it’s a way to share your learning with the other members of our hyperlinked community. Imagine strolling around a beautiful space where each of you have created something the represents your takeaways or insights from #hyperlib – that’s what I am looking for.
How does this look to all? Please share thoughts and suggestions below.
