Your task is a simple one:
You are each to make to a New Note that pulls together the knowledge you have gained from the knowledge building discussion on your Project A View (Maths, Physics, Marine Science or Zoology).
We have added a new set of scaffolds entitled ‘My Synthesis’ to help you do this.
Use these scaffolds to help you synthesise what you have learned from your Project A discussion and to highlight the ideas, posts and links that helped your knowledge building most.
Post your synthesis as a New Note titled `My Synthesis’ within your Project view.
This task should take you no more than 30 minutes.
Date Due: Fri 25th of May
We look forward to reading your ‘My Synthesis’ post.
Don’t forget if you have ANY technical problems using Knowledge Forum let us know right away. For those of you who haven’t been in for a while, have forgotten how to use the software or have lost the starter guide given you at the January camp, we are happy to email you another copy and/or run a short refresher on-line using OtagoConnect.
Soon we will be posting the Project B views (Chemistry, Biochemistry/Genetics, Computer Science and Geography) to create an on-line discussion and to synthesize ideas generated between now and the July camp.
May we take this opportunity to remind you that we expect you to access Knowledge Forum at least once a week to read the posts of others and to make a new note. This is your contribution to the Academy between camps and is part of the commitment you undertook when you applied to The OUASSA.
Don’t forget the Curriculum Views are there to post questions asking for advice or assistance with internals and externals etc. We will gladly help where we can!
