OpenEd -Week 10 cross-blogging

I found quite useful the idea of Megan to gather and updating the book reviews during this week.

It really fits my need of the usual ‘Work in progress’ modality I adopted to follow this Course.

  1. Nobody can learn without taking the examples of others into consideration, it is normal, at the beginner level it should be a rule.
    You cannot be original if first you do not start from analysing what the others have done before you.
    I know I am not original, but I realize I AM LEARNING. At this stage of my learning process, it is enough for my needs.
    Cheers :-)))

  2. I would say it should be a rule, ever!

    Aren’t we in favour of a lifelong learning or not?

    Right now on the methodological imput of this Course by Wiley, I’m going to move the delivery of my annual Animal Farm Interactive from Moodle to this BLOG…(wanted some experience with a less formal delivery and see what happens)
