Hi Everyone,

Huge apologies about the papers. There was a lot of work to do on the weekend getting the MOO up and running, so they're not yet available outside of our office, where we had hoped to have them by now. I'll have them all in class on Thursday.

Let me know if this is a problem for you.

Where are the Blogs, guys? [Aug. 1st, 2005|11:45 pm]

In all seriousness, ladies and gentlemen, I have to say that there are a couple of you who are getting behind in your blogging. You're supposed to put in an entry before class... and admittedly that gives you about 9 hours to get it done for tomorrow morning, but still. At the moment I've seen ONE entry about Papert & Harel and Nicholl. And some of you are even further behind than that. Do I need to remind you that part of the assignment requires you to blog before class?


So now I'm going to bed... and I sure hope that when I wake up tomorrow, there will be some entries for me to absorb before class!

MOO Readings [Jul. 29th, 2005|04:46 pm]

We hadn't assigned a reading on MOOs, because we feel that the experience is going to be more important ... but if you're interested/have never used a MOO before and like to read... Some of the links within a number of these articles no longer work, which just goes to show how old the MOO is.

Strongly recommended:

http://www.hayseed.net/MOO/HouseofWords.html#defi (definition of a MOO)

http://cinemaspace.berkeley.edu/~rachel/moo.html (The purpose of MOOs by Rachel Rein)

Other Options:
http://www.gwu.edu/~washweb/cohen.html

http://www.hayseed.net/MOO/ -- the Lost Library of MOO which has many reading options.

Dewey reference correction [Jul. 26th, 2005|01:06 am]
kmd2003

Unless I'm grossly mistaken, the Dewey reference is not as cited in the syllabus. The table of contents for How We Think is:

http://spartan.ac.brocku.ca/~lward/Dewey/Dewey_1910a/Dewey_1910_toc.html

The correct reference is

Dewey, J. (1938). Experience and education. New York: Macmillan.

Full text is available from http://www.alnujaidi.com/index/experience_education.htm

For those who are interested in a preview, Li Koo, our guest speaker for Tuesday, sent me this short bio fyi:

Li Koo was a museum educator at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M.Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. She developed and created interactive hands-on curricula in order to encourage museum visitors to not only look at art but to create it.
