I am catching up on blog posts and RSS feed suggestions today and made it to one of my favourite topics – #etmooc.
Alec Couros is leading the way to create some kind of open online learning community for learners anywhere to come together and learn. He created a collaborative google.doc to create some kind of instructional design plan – and most recently had a google hangout that brought about the creation of the #unmooc.
Alec’s #unmooc blog post emphasizes a lot of the ideas I have been discussing in the development of the Open Classroom. I am going to examine his reflection and collaboration to see where I can connect the OC and the #unmooc.
Some great starting points are:
100 Great Ideas by Keri Smith
Student Summaries of Work – Alec Couros ECMP 355
DS106 – What is it ? Can it be defined? Should it be defined? How can I integrate DS106 ideas into k12 Open Classroom? What scaffolding is required?
23 Things at NEFLN – Amazing
GitHUB – How is it different from other platforms? I’m still swayed towards Canvas Infrastructure – I need somewhere for students to register so I can create walled gardens for those who “choose” that learning space. (I am k12 still)
Well – off to explore!
