Session with VET’s

Had a session with a few too many VET students with Jason at GP computer suites on Monday 17/10/2011, not sure what Jason thought the first session is always a bit chaotic getting, Moodle and email accounts set up, logins, and teenagers.

The outcome highlighted areas that need work and I have started to set down the process so others can read it and be prepared.

The fact that young students have to think for themselves can be challenging and tough to handle but as the session went on the uttering of “this is bullshit” die down . They began to engage and actually read what’s in front of them the results were good more than
75% finished, two or more units and assessment.

During the session Jason asked the students:

1) what they thought of online learning do far and

2) whether they would prefer a book or online

3) would it be easier on an IPad.

The responses were mixed but overall the iPad seemed a more popular option if there was an app or ebook option that was easier to use.

I have begun to put in place a course structured differently that could be adapted for iPad use and also as an ebook.
