    The first part of the assignment will be assessed based on both your weekly reflections to course prompts and on your willingness to contribute to others’ learning by providing your classmates with critical and constructive feedback through commenting.
    The second part of the assignment, the “Summary of learning,” asks you to reflect on your overall journey at the end of the course by creating a final post that contains a digital story that summarizes your learning in a creative way (the easiest option here is to upload to Youtube and then insert the Youtube link in your post). Your post may also include a short written summary in which you link back to previous posts in order to highlight key moments in your journey.
    Some examples of digital stories (please note that these are simply examples of digital stories, not of posts with links):

    ...
    Due: April 4th,11th, 2015
    Ongoing reflection is an important part of the process of learning to teach. In this in particular, we will ask you to engage with “troubling” knowledge, a process that may lead to some discomfort, and so the act of reflecting will be a critical part of your learning this semester.
    This assignment has two parts, both of which are meant to support your journey in ECS210. For the first part of the assignment, “Curriculum as process,” we ask that you create a personal blog, where you will post your reflections throughout the semester (instructions for setting up your blog will be provided in seminar). Using a blog for your reflections has several benefits. For one thing, __teachers in Saskatchewan are now expected to demonstrate digital literacies in their practice__ and to teach and model these skills for students. Learning the mechanics of blogging and beginning to build your own digital identity will be an important step towards meeting this outcome. As well, openness and engagement with others around the globe is an increasingly important skill, as it allows you to be a lifelong learner and to seek out ideas or collaborate with teachers in many different parts of the world. Moreover, the act of writing for a global and undefined audience often leads to deeper and more critical reflection from students; having to engage with the content in a way that you are proud to share online may well help you to solidify your thoughts and beliefs. This format also allows you to receive feedback from your fellow classmates, instructors, and others beyond the course.
