Interesting presentation from Susanne Nobles for her Pedagogy and Instructional Design class with Kevin Romberger-DePew. She focuses on research involving the transition from high school to college reading and writing. "College students can spend two years growing into the reading and writing that will serve them best in college." This seems extreme, and there may be ways to address this by connecting students with more advanced discourse while they are still in high school. "Through online collaboration with peers and graduate students, high school students can interact more deeply with their reading and writing." And the basis for this sort of solution, she writes, is found in connectivism. "We as teachers can do something right now to prepare our students for four fully successful college years."
