Transcript of The Plinko Principle

Kablam A few other tools you want to add that I forgot: Variations on the Music Genome Project Prezi makes your classes Quincunx? What on earth does this have to do with teaching languages? It's easy to make non-linear presentations!
students create their own learning paths
assessment is problem- or task-based, collaborative ...and don't forget:
there are a lot of
non-linear applications
to explore! be on the
lookout for
new ideas! The 'Plinko' Principle: Technology-Based Tools to Help Teachers Foster a Non-Linear Classroom Environment Douglas Canfield Backchannel Nonlinear Content Instructional Elasticity Music Once i wanted to use this
video in class to broach
what I thought were important
topics that would interest my
students. The version of the video
I had was from M6, with scrolling
SMS at the bottom... of course, my students seemed
tepid about the video, but were
INSANELY interested in the

were from. I had a mini-lesson on that...in my office! See Doug run...to his

You won't regret it...in fact, let me give you this link to register and download Dropbox: http://tinyurl.com/dropboxwithdoug . Once you register and download Dropbox, we'll both get 250MB of extraspace! steer class in meaningful directions

Mashups useful if you have FERPA worrywarts or luddites http://backnoise.com/ * Thanks to Balázs Turai for an AWESOME template! We treat our students like a contestant playing PLINKO on THE PRICE IS RIGHT A successful "student" after a "pedagogical intervention" A "model student" So whyyyyy don't you use it?
Buyyyyy time don't lose it Is this a mashup? Assessment The "Walgreens" worldview a "real" worldview Gee on Games
as Assessment If this is how your students study for a test,what are you doing wrong? Digital Storytelling:
http://prezi.com/hqbamtoko6my/ Virtual tourist with Google Earth: http://www.twitter.com other ideas?? which metaphor looks more like your classes? Non-linear learning, informal learning is NOT unstructured learning, just structured differently, polystructural ? http://www.google.com/intl/en/options/
