Wouldn't this make fantastic procedural writing!
After our tinkering we talked about Modern Learning Environments and brainstormed traditional environments compared to MLE's. Chris Clay then introduced the concept of Reverse thinking and we had to choose one component from the MLE brainstorm and then think about it in reverse. Reverse thinking helped us to clarify exactly what a MLE is. I tried this in the classroom when I took a group of children who were creating an e-book. We tried reverse thinking to brainstorm what an e-book was NOT and this really did help clarify what an e-book was. Try it!
