I need help with – experiences of blended learning, integrating online and physical activities

Advertisements

To be a GamesMaker for the London 2012 Olympics ‘training’ included turning up to Wembley Arena on your allotted day with 6,000 other people. We enjoyed and in a simple way took part. We got a folder with a CD in it. We then following these steps to do our homework which was then followed up by a more intimate session with our group. Its of interest here because it bridges being physically present to learn, meet others and do stuff, while having things to do and learn on your own … then bringing it all back. It was right, because it was related to sport, to have both components and the graphics/design included this step my step, game-board like stages to take you through it all. The idea was to get you to visualise your journey through the stages. My plan is to have students at a location, outside rather than in a museum. Can they enter therefore a virtual museum where they contribute to the artefacts ‘on display’ by contributing their own and commenting on the work of others. Like this module! Here I want photos of WW1 combatants – trying to name people, trying to plot the last known position of the missing … to play on a geekish interest in the First World War to get scholarly and accurate contributions, but also to gather feelings and thoughts in anything a person wants to put up.
