"Closet Introvert" - Self-taught Extrovert.
I use quiet to reevaluate my teaching approach and reflect on past semesters. I look back at what I did, what worked, what didn’t and what could or should be done differently.
Start early! Last semesters assignment would have been much more productive had we started at the beginning of the semester. Had students connected earlier they would have been more familiar with the process and each other. Moreover, we would have had more time to work out the technological glitches. Also, being well prepared eases some of the frustration and anxiety.
Other students who would benefit from community 2.0 activities include students with speech impediments, those who are Quiet or shy, ones with special needs or language deficiencies.
Web 2.0 Platforms help to give every member in the community a voice. Quiet Students tend to be more active and engaged in online discussions.
