the brain with 200-- er, 328 legs--is ALIVE!
[Update Saturday 12:40 P.M.] Watching Hayden, John, Owen, Sara, Vanessa, Eli, Felicitas, and Andrew working on the mind map. Who knew that the two-minute drill could be this interesting (thanks Feli)? #betterthancollegefootball
[Update: Saturday 2:04 P.M.] Right now it's Ming, Justin, Valerie, Josh, Carlos, Christa, Teanna, Katelyn, and Isiah, the map's so busy John keeps getting blocked out when he tries to post. (Give the man a chance! :) #definitelybetterthancollegefootballnowletsgobruins
[Update: Saturday 2:41 P.M.] Christa is having trouble logging onto the mind map so can anyone help by visiting her blog and posting the info (with her name) to the mind map? Mahalo.
[Update: Saturday 4:47 P.M.] Mackenzie, Alex, Elizabeth, Sam, and Matt are also in the mix. I ran across the thought, "Books are siege weapons" and realized I'm not sure I know what Queenan means. Curious to see what you think. #foramomentcollegefballwasactuallyprettygreatfinalscoreucla38usc28
[Update: Saturday 6:23 P.M.] Thank you Isiah for helping me understand the "siege weapons" reference! Hey everyone, this looks great so far. I wish I was an octopus so I could live tweet, post screen shots on Tumblr, and... I'm tired just thinking about it. Those of you on Twitter will start seeing action from @prestonlearning (about this and coming attractions). I'm stepping out for the evening, so if you need anything please email. If you run into trouble that your colleagues can't answer, click the question mark in the circle on the Mindmeister dashboard (top right) and this video series also looks pretty helpful (as always, feel free to search out your own resources and comment here if you find something wonderful). In a pinch email firstname.lastname@example.org. See you here and on the mind map tomorrow!
[Update: Sunday 10:56 A.M.] Top o' the morning to Socorro, Reed, Sebastian, Cassidy, Erika, Dulce, Devon, Josh, Michelle, and Kasie, and thanks to everyone who participated overnight. This is literally the eleventh hour-- if you haven't contributed yet, this is the moment you've been waiting for!
[Update: Sunday 11:58 A.M.] Great to see course alum Trevor Hudgins on the map! Ask him anything, he knows more about the platform than anyone else I know. Also: our 24 hours is up, BUT FEEL FREE TO ADD MORE WHENEVER YOU GET AN IDEA. We can always tell from the timeline what happened when, and (as you've heard me say a thousand times) ideas often occur to us well after the conversation. It's one of the ways we can tell we're learning. :)
