Weekly Rundown Posts: The Key to a Self-Paced Learning Environment
Hello, Visitor. I’m Whiz, the Creative Crusade’s head of Research and Development. We’ll see more of each other as the year progresses, but for now, I’m guessing you’ll want to know how the Rundown Posts will work.
Rather than lecturing, the Captain will update the current Week’s page each and every school day. You’ll never have to ask, What did we do yesterday? or What will we be doing today? because the answer will be online—in text, videos, imagery, and links.
Just as the Captain will maintain a record of his journey through the Creative Crusade this year, you will, too. (More on that later.)
Your responsibility each day, Visitor, is to show up on time, read the board, check the current weekly post, watch the video(s), read the text, click the links, and follow the instructions—each and every day.
It’s not as bad as it sounds. Most players find the experience liberating and empowering. Why? Because YOU control the pace of your learning from day one and by week six, if you work hard and play by the rules, you’ll earn your choice of company perks. But remember, with great power comes great responsibility.
For your convenience, the Captain will supply links (below) for each week’s page.
