Just came across this post from David Wiley discussing the difference between "disposable assignments" and "renewable assignments." This is something I have been thinking about for awhile now: how to design assignments that allow students to make intellectual contributions to the common good and gain situated practice with professional skills. Good stuff! http://opencontent.org/blog/archives/3941

"Pedagogical tools should be engaging. They should be social and embedded in networks — that is, connected to other digital tools. They should be private by default and public by option. Yet, they should be accessible, which means viewable on all devices. They should be adaptable, so as to accommodate a wide variety of teaching styles. They should primarily be used to augment or supplement — that is, to hybridize — rather than to replace classroom interaction."
