Is it possible to do a self-study and actually enjoy the process? I think it may be.
Tonight during the ISTE SIGVE leadership office hours, the discussion of the self- study included talk of Papert’s “hard fun“, fiero ( the feeling you get when you overcome a challenge) and why we as educators all stayed in Second Life despite it being hard.
We also just started the discussion on what criteria we would to look at. If you would like to comment or collaborate the self-study design document is open for both until May 8th.
Or should we pull from the new skills for a participatory culture?
