January 12-19: Getting Acquainted

There are three major getting acquainted goals for this week. First, we want you to become acquainted with the SETT Framework developed by Joy Zabala. To do this, read the background materials we have provided. The second goal is for us to become acquainted with each other. We expect everyone to post a brief bio to convey who you are professionally and personally. The third goal is to become acquainted with the conferencing software. We urge you to take the time now to experiment with the conferencing system. Time spent now means less time learning the system later when things get busy and you just want to post a message!

 These are your tasks for this topic:

gather relevant information about the student, educational environment, and the tasks

focus their conversation

make decisions about technology and its uses

revisit decisions based on ongoing assessment
