Wow, this course has challenged my way of thinking as well as reinforcing some. I have a strong passion for ICT that many of my collegues in the course shared. It was interesting to share this new experience of learning online. I didn't think that it would be possible in the begining. Readings of superior authors have shed light on issues surrounding learning theories and implementation of policy and e-learning. What I guess I'm trying to say is that e-learning is something that we as digital citizens have to embrace in a methodical manner. We only need to see the countless amounts of web 2.0 tools being created. I guess that you can contribute that to the social network giants. I believe those creaters are looking to create the next big craze. Here I go on a tangent but even television giants are embracing the new craze.....if this is happenning now, whose to know what we will have in the future-classic example, plauying on the PS3 the other day now there is an icon to watch television on my PS3, I didn't ask for it and now its there. Is this kind of marketing mechanism the new direction?
Back again, the course has outlined features to e-learning that I had never ever thought to consider. I feel equiped with the right knowledge now than ever before. Thanks Tony for a well thought out course.

I found it comforting on the other hand the knowledge that I had just learnt from the course was refreshing and new and that I could offer assistence to her with theory to back it up. This course has brought the best out of me in regards of teaching practice to policy implementation and so on that I wish to continue to pass on this new schema of mine to my department.

With many days passing so quickly I have finally decided on my report topic. I was thinking of writing a report of the use of Socratic Questioning to improve Critical literacy through the use of a weblog. Social constructivism has been the identified thoery of which I will make links to. The tool in this case to improve the critical literacry will be the weblog and the method of which I will help aid this tool will be socratic questioning.
