The last two Web/Wireless Wednesdays were a very new experience for me. Whereas the first WW was hectic and I easily lost track of time, I felt that the seecond WW was a bit more polished. I believe the wide difference between the two WW was because of familiarity or becoming more accustomed to how our class is run during a WW. I feel that the experience would become more streamlined and intuitive as the weeks go on further into the semester. For this WW in particular, we were able to address this learning goal:

  • Respond carefully, critically, and sensitively to language, and identify and properly employ relevant literary terms, such as imagery, allusion, voice, tone, metaphor, meter, diction, figurative language, form, meter, and rhyme.

We analyzed the poem for its literary/figurative language and were able to share our thoughts with other classmates in a forum-like setting and we were able to expand on our understanding of it.

    i agree, WW is a learning experience. Just like michelle mentioned i feel that the class as a whole will have better experiences with WW as we move deeper into the semester. The first week was hectic we were foreigners in a strange land, being forced to use the web for sometime most of us do not use it for, school.

    I also feel that we were able to accomplish, at least in part, the learning goal you mentioned in your post. I’m sure that we will continue to polish up our methods and process to the point that we are going to become much more successful with the use of our online class meetings.
