Before we move on to the next set of ISTE standards: Creativity and Innovation – we’re going to spend a few days talking about our 20% projects: how to make your blog and your posts better or how to connect with others doing similar projects.

The first thing we want to do is find out what everyone is working on. While most of you have posted your 20% project topics on Twitter – some face-to-face conversations will go a long way towards refining your research question and your project goals. We will spend some time in class today sharing your ideas.

Task one. Pitch your ideas!

  • What is your idea/topic?
  • Why did you choose that idea/topic?
  • What do you expect to learn?

Task two. Rubric

Once we know what everyone is working on (and isn’t it amazing how much your projects have in common?), we need to spend some time thinking about what the expectations for the 20% project will be. I’m going to build a bingo rubric (I’ll explain what this is during today’s class) to use to assess your overall project. But I want you to have input on what should go in the rubric. So we’ll spend some time brainstorming what makes a good 20% project.

Here are some resources to make your blog better.


1. Connect with classmates via Twitter who are working on similar topics. Post a link on Twitter to your latest blog post – use your topic hashtag and #edit2000

2. Find people on Twitter to follow that will help you with ideas for your project.  Make sure to follow the 100/100 rule – at least 100 tweets and at least 100 people to follow before the end of the semester.
