Week 1 reminders

Week 1 reminders

Enjoyed our first gathering together; thank you for jumping into Dewey with thoughtful insights.
Since the first day of classes can be a flurry of information, here are a couple reminders for this week in case it’s useful to you:
  • Find Situated Learning book (rent, buy, borrow). We’ll read chapters 1 & 2 for next class. Together in class next week, we will try to unpack the main terms “situated learning” and “legitimate peripheral participation.” We’ll work to understand what these ideas mean: of course, feel free to use ideas you find in a web search too.
  • By Sunday night or early(ish) Monday, please write a few paragraphs in our G+ space about the Dewey reading and your initial thoughts about how people learn? What are the conditions that make learning something new more likely? Link to our G+ space again here and also on the front page of our course website. (Make sure you’re logged in through your Chico State account.)
Have a great rest of your week. I look forward to designing courses together this semester
