2008-05-21 12:19:32 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: What are students supposed to learn about the project they are working on?
2008-05-21 12:19:58 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Making learning goals part of the process. 
2008-05-21 12:21:11 [Message] Susan Morgan -> -EdTechTalk: Seems to be a simple concept but not everyone asks those questions ahead of time--
2008-05-21 12:21:18 [Message] alex.ragone -> -EdTechTalk: Peter's topic reminds me a lot about what Chris Lehmann describes culture at SLA.
2008-05-21 12:21:47 [Message] Susan Morgan -> -EdTechTalk: I agree. Even the students in the hall at SLA could explain what they were learning in the process
