I submitted my TMA a few days early as I was going on holiday and wanted it off my desk!
I actually completed it a few days before I submitted it but was reluctant to actually hit the send button. I was also reluctant to read through the completed assignment another time as I was concerned I might notice it was absolute tosh!
In the end the H800 WhatsApp group encouraged me to submit and forget and that it what I did! Then I went to Cornwall for a week with my family (17 of us aged between 4 and 76) in the sunshine by the sea. It was glorious.
As before I cannot judge how the TMA was! I had to rethink parts of it quite radically as I re-read and re-understood the question. In the end this was what I did:
Part 1a - a critical view of the net-generation
Are young people today really qualitatively different because they grew up with the internet? Not really
Part 1b - reading Price et al
Does the convenience of distance learning mean the potential loss of experience is worth it? All depends!
Part 1c - blogs and blogging
Reflect on your learning people! It's really cathartic and useful!
Part 2 - redesign an activity
Everyone should blog! Rename it learning journal and give people some examples of how they could use the tool.
Part 3 - new research
Do some side by side comparisons of learning activities and their distance learning equivalents - do both types of exercise with the same group of students for control purposes.
Hmmmm...... not sure why it took 4000 words given my super-succinct summary!
Here's a holiday picture!
