I still believe that I am the only person reading Situated Learning: Legitimate Peripheral Participation - and I think I know why. I finished the Foreward and the language and word use is just as confusing as the title. I am still not very clear on what the book is about - but from what I understand it is about different people who learn the same thing and use it/ learn it/ apply it differently. Since I am still only in the Foreward, I will chop up the book to small sections to start to deepen my understanding.

The book I will read for this class is "Situated Learning: Legitimate Peripheral Participation (Learning in Doing: Social, Cognitive and Computational Perspectives)". This book looks interesting to be because it discusses the social settings of learning. I hope I learn new ideas that transfer to helping my students learn!

The Will Richardson article was very good and realistic. It was interesting to me he talked about Minecraft - because even in my math classroom which doesn't use any individualized technology the students still build Minecraft figures and villages out of my connector blocks. It is nice to see they can apply what they learn online to a non technology setting.
