What is the question wall?

The Question Wall is a place where questions can be posted by Learning Village members without any responses. "Try to love the questions themselves ," says the poet, Rilke. This is the spirit in which the Question Wall is created.

Sometimes, you'll be instructed as part of an assignment to post questions that have arisen for you as you interact withthe course material. In Course 5, as you are assembling your E-Portfolio, you'll be asked to type some questions from the Question Wall as part of yourE-Portfolio. Most times, however, you must self-initiate posting questions and you'll do that simply because you've been thinking aboutsomething as it relates to the ideas in the course and you want to make your questions visible. Others may have similar questions, and it is fine torepeat questions by placing them on the Question Wall even if they seem similar.

"Graffiti walls" and posters exist all over the world as public forums for self-expression and inquiry. Here is our constructiveway of expressing our intellectual journey in an electronic and visual form. Our hope is that our Learning Village's Question Wall becomes afertile place of questions about practices and ideas in education - a source of inspiration for all of us. The Question Wall will become a learning log - avisual representation of your thinking and our entire Learning Village's line of questioning as we all proceed through the Certificate of TeachingMastery.

How to place questions on the Question Wall

Go to the WebBoard by clicking here (log in), and you'll see an area called "The Learning Village." Click on the name "TheLearning Village," and you'll see a sub-topic that says, "Question Wall." To post questions on The Learning Village's Question Wall follow the sameinstructions you used on "How to Post Your Work to WebBoard" The only difference is that you'll click on the topic "Question Wall" and after youpost your question, no one will respond to your question. It will simply be a place where the members of our Learning Village will make their questionsvisible.

Assignment 2b: meeting the learning village

There are two parts to Assignment 2b:

Part One

In Assignment 2a you were asked to "Describe in one or two paragraphs what you see now as you look outside your window." You postedyour response on the WebBoard for your Learning Circle to see. Now, post the same response for Assignment 2a on the WebBoard - this time, for "TheLearning Village" to see. The Learning Village is the entire group of Learners in the Certificate of Teaching Mastery representing 21countries, and it is an area on WebBoard that is also available for public viewing.

To post your response, simply follow the directions as described earlier in "How to Post Your Work on WebBoard." The onlydifference is that instead of clicking on your Learning Circle's name, you'll look for the heading "The Learning Village." Click on the words "TheLearning Village," and look for the sub-topic that says "Windows to the World." Click on "Windows to the World," and follow the directions fromthere. Check back every few days to read new responses posted daily from the larger Learning Village.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
