For fall 2008, I’m going to be making 3 big changes to the way I teach the class all the time, English 328: Writing, Style, and Technology. First, I think I’m going to abandon/retire the web site assignment. Second, I think I’m going to add/replace that assignment with a movie-making assignment (though I really haven’t figured out yet what I’m going to do with that).
Third, I’m going to incorporate/add/integrate contemporary and Web 2.0 technologies into the class assignments– google docs, reader, flickr, the blog assignment I have given for a while, perhaps some kind of wiki assignment, etc. Toward that end, here’s a kind of cool little tool: the Awesome Highlighter, which allows you to highlight and leave notes on web sites. It’s a simple and intuitive little tool.
