Debate #6: Cellphones Should Be Banned in the Classroom (Week #5: Post #2)
Looking Forward to Hearing from YOU!
This is an especially interesting topic to me, and I think that most people fall on one side or the other, and only a few fall right down the middle. I am interested to hear what other people have to say about this topic, especially how their own experiences have shaped their feelings. I know that there are a few of us in the course that aren’t social media users, and there are also a few that are very active, so it’s always interesting to see what people have to say. I think that both of the topics for this week fit together nicely, and I think that points brought up this week could be interchanged for either debate. Very interesting, indeed!
Similar to a lot of my course peers, I too researched more into the OER Commons(OER means Open Educational Resources). Why did I choose this one you ask? Well, for starters Alecshowed it to us in class the other night and it was interesting to me as I have never heard of it before. Before actually researching anything, I noticed that the home page looks professional, neat, easy to navigate and the colours really hooked me. So, at first glance it looks good… hopefully, that saying does not bite me in the tuchus later on… never judge a book by its cover, but I definitely am.
