    Fun stuff to think about. I always wanted to build a course/text/media in Google Earth or with timelines as the navigational element. My other dream is to build a textbook with an unreliable narrator.

    I wonder some about even the word “textbook” and whether it doesn’t come with too much baggage and too many preconceived ideas about what the content is and how it should be structured.

    In this model internet content is the ‘textbook’ and students are takes with sorting wheat from chaff and organizing and presenting in a compelling fashion. Great exercise as long as it’s supervised so students have some guidance on how to sort wheat from chaff.

    I was just talking with a colleague in the music department about this very concept. I thought it would be beneficial if a “bank” or “library” of student generated texts were amassed for comparison and quality control purposes. Talk about beginning to think like an author. It would take a bold instructor. I like it.
