At the closing plenary, it was suggested that we choose a well-tested activity, and represent is in different learning design tools. We've chosen the nQuire microclimates activity for this challenge.

To participate in this challenge:

  • read the activity description, in the demo above, and in the papers below.
  • represent this activity in the learning design tool of your choice.
  • create a cloud, with the outputs of your work and your reflections on the process. Note what you have learned about your tool, and what you have learned about learning.
  • post a comment on this cloud (in the "contribute" section) with a link to your cloud.
