Question in my email today: Hello Dean 

devise a problem concerning education and either media, popular culture or technology

We need to devise a problem concerning either education and media, education and popular culture or education and technology?

Obviously these things overlap - however, your problem in the form of a driving question should make it clear what your focus is from the outset. Read about what driving questions are and look at some examples in Edutopia.

Anyone distracted in class doesn’t just lose out on the content of the discussion but creates a sense of permission that opting out is OK, and, worse, a haze of second-hand distraction for peers.

Shirky also said that the last technology before the internet that got people to talk and collaborate was the table.

Now we're into the second half of semester, the course swings into Project Based Learning mode. This means things change, such as attendance and comms. I'll be posting info and answering questions here ... Thanks for joining the community.

Great place for cyclists to drop off the Bourke Street path for great coffee and food. Onlly a tad further than Devonshire Street intersection - and no where near as "move your bike" when trying to relax on the street side.
