Focus: What do I need to know about the people and the technology in this class?

1. Enjoying a student scavenger hunt to learn a little about each other

2. Trying out your "I Like People" grids with your 26 questions; collecting your 26 questions from last night

3. Exploring blogs of the past and using "I Like People" grids to establish blogging policies for this class.

a. Please peruse the post and the comments for the two blogs linked below.  As you read quietly, think about which ones are strong and which ones are weak.  What makes the strong ones strong, and what makes the weak ones weak?
