The 231 Buffet


The 231 Buffet

  • This course has been a survey of instructional technologies intended to expose students to a wide range of current applications.


The 231 Buffet: the menu

  • Word processing

  • Email and listservs

  • Discussion forums

  • Chats

  • Administrative content

  • Online quizzes

  • Html

  • Online research

  • Distance education

  • Multimedia technologies


The 231 Buffet

  • Because maintaining a critical perspective toward technology is so important, this class began by examining the “why” of technology (theory) in combination with the “how” of computers (the application).


The 231 Buffet

  • Advantage: The buffet approach allows you to choose applications that match your particular tastes.


The 231 Buffet

  • Disadvantage: Except for the final unit project, the buffet approach does not allow you to savor a particular application deeply, and the various “flavors” can begin to run together.


The 231 Buffet

  • The buffet approach does, however, offer a context to develop the skills needed to pursue applications later, in other situations, on your own.


Principle #1

  • Keep people first.

  • The class demonstrated a consistent urge to “re-embody” online education.


Principle #2

  • Identify and build from program principles.

  • I stressed interactivity; others focused on presentational applications.


Principle #3

  • Start simple.

  • The buffet only included the simplest items, but the large projects let you know how quickly such applications can become complex.


Principle #4

  • Requires intense hands-on investments.

  • You are no doubt most comfortable with the application(s) you used in your final projects.


Principle #5

  • Revise strategies for instructing students: we’re all feral.

  • Because you could not practice on live students in this class, you’ll want to be sure to keep this principle in mind as you enter the real (virtual) world.


Principle #6

  • Expect the crash.

  • Two words: CoursInfo chat


Principle #7

  • Consider access.

  • Economically, culturally, logistically.


Principle #8

  • Be critical of technology.

  • Once you have been exposed to a range of technologies, you are better equipped to be choosy and to argue in your defense and in defense of your students.


Principle #9

  • Use technology as a lever for positive change: you are now more powerful.

  • People will listen to you.


Principle #10

  • Consult with others.

  • Expertise in instructional technology is definitely and open-ended skill; thus, the learning never ends. I am eager to remain your coach and contact.


The 231 Buffet

  • I hoped you enjoyed your meal.

  • Spicy, sweet, sour, rich, bland—but hopefully just what you needed (or will need).

  • Thanks for your hard work.
