What a great chat tonight! We used scramblr to decide what topic to discuss. After posting the link to the site, participants suggested topics or gave their support to a topic on the board.
For a first attempt things went fairly smoothly. The one thing to discuss is how to add questions to the board once our topic is decided. I think we will definitely try this format again after taking some time to discuss how to improve the format and involve more participants in the beginning selection of a topic.
There are some good links and resources included in the chat tonight dealing with homework. I’d recommend checking out Cybraryman’s page on homework as there are a number of great links. I’d also suggest checking out Alfie Kohn and these two TeachThought articles dealing with homework.
