Discuss the following questions. Post your responses on the discussion forum on the CS4ODFL Discourse site. Review your colleagues’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. Try to respond to someone who has not been responded to yet.

  • Do you think that knowledge becomes something different when represented by different media? For instance, does an animation of a mathematical function represent something different from a written or printed equation of the same function? Which is the most ‘mathematical’: the formula or the animation?
  • Selecting and using media for ODFL communication is a crucial activity in both synchronous and asynchronous modes of teaching. Consider your teaching and learning environment and list and discuss the media that would be most suitable for your ODFL classes.
