  4. Discussion of essential tools for communication: Google group (use this rather than email), airset (add ALL class times and holidays), ning, wiki, email
  5. HP Ning: What to expect and what to encourage - join students to Ning and create a class group (easier to communicate with your students if they join this), monitor comments of ALL students, use the Ning to find students/teachers and to make essential communications.
  6. HP Wiki: Join students, use for communication with team members on topics only...all other communication goes on the Ning.
  7. Discussion of Teams (see draft below) - we have approximately 226 students (see classrooms). -- The horizon trend reports on the left represent the 13 major wiki teams (17-18 per major team) and the areas of impact depict the areas for intense investigation and topic for video artifact representing 52 subgroups with 4-5 students per team. We will discuss in detail at the meeting on Monday and will record and send it to those who cannot attend for their feedback. If you wish to discuss this, use the discussion tab on this page.
  8. Time Zone page -- any volunteers or ideas of the best way to do this? (We've used worldclock before) -- each paste our own time on there -- we need to make sure we have the times right.
  9. Teams to be finalised by the end of this week. Everyone to add student names (first name and initial) to Google doc. Invitation has already been sent out.
