Contributors' Task Card


Goal:

Contribute one or more technology-enhanced D.I. strategies on the Tech4DI wiki.

Resources to Use:


Session Tasks:

  • Review Existing Contributions (5 to 10 minutes)

  • Prepare Then Post Your Contribution (15 to 20 minutes)

    • Download and use the or (the RTF should open in any word processing application and may be uploaded to GoogleDocs).
    • Compose your contribution on the Planning Form rather than directly on the wiki. Only one person at a time can actually edit a wiki page. Preparing your contribution off-line in the Planning Form will help avoid this limitation.
    • Determine which page or pages of Tech Tips & Strategies your contribution should appear on. If your contribution applies to more than one page, just add it to all that are appropriate.
    • When you are ready to post, select your text from the Planning Form, then click the Edit This Page link at the top of the appropriate Tech Tips & Strategies page. Position the insert cursor at the appropriate spot and paste in your text. Be sure to add a Horizontal Rule to separate each contribution on the page. And don't forget to give yourself credit -- include a link to your home page or provide contact information as you wish (but use caution/discretion to minimize exposure to spam).
  • Reflect and Respond (about 5 minutes)

    • When prompted, briefly discuss your contribution(s) in your Pair or Triad.
    • Share your contribution(s) with the larger group by responding in the NECC2008 thread under the Discussion tab at the top of this wiki page.
    • Be prepared to share in the large-group Wrap Up discussion -- your own contribution(s) or one previous contributed that you found interesting or potentially useful.
    • Start to complete the online BYOL Survey for NECC 2008 -- http://www.iste.org/byol2008 -- Please finish before you leave.
