MOOC

(This is from my blog, Kevin's Meandering Mind) I made a ton of comics for the most recent round of Rhizomatic Learning with Dave Cormier, as well as other assorted media, such as memes and graphs and artwork. I realized, as Rhizo15 now officially winds down (but really, it never ends, if we can help it ... thus, the Let's Connect image above), that I have 56 items in my Flickr Album for Rhizo15...
This collection of resources demonstrates the ways that middle school teachers at a high needs middle school in Eastern North Carolina are transforming their professional learning and teaching practices with Connected Learning frameworks.
Last week on TTT, a group of us got together to talk about intergenerational MOOC participation and what might happen if there were a cMOOC focused on the idea of Genius Hour. Here's the video:       Toward the end of the session, Peggy George asked "What's your 'purpose' for offering it and what would be the kids' purpose in wanting to be part of it?"   Great questions so I'm answering them...

(cross-posted from K12 Open Ed) A few of us have been talking about the idea of fostering cross-generational participation in cMOOCs lately, and as I think about this my mind keeps coming back to the idea of Genius Hour as a MOOC. For those unfamiliar, the idea of Genius Hour (also sometimes called Google 20% time) is to give students some dedicated time to pursue their own passions. Whenever I...

(cross posted from K12 Open Ed) The cross-generational learning experiences that I’ve participated in have been uniquely powerful. This is leading me to think about how we might include more youth in our connectivist learning MOOCs. My question is – what would incentivize youth to participate? In many ways, this is the same question I am often asked about getting educators to participate in opt-...

(cross-posted from K12 Open Ed)  Over the last year, I’ve learned a lot about MOOCs, both as a participant and as a facilitator, in all cases as a learner. Much like my learning curve with Twitter, I dove deep and went from “meh” to “wow.” One of my biggest leaps in understanding came when I realized that “all MOOCs are NOT created equal,” and in fact, there are huge differences between xMOOCs...

Making a MOOC: What we learned in #CLMOOC Making a MOOC: What we learned in #CLMOOC MOOCs—massive open online courses—are undeniably popular in educational circles, and predictions are that they might just revolutionize how learning takes place. Gathering considerable media attention and investor...
One of our initiatives at the National Writing Project this past summer was planning, building, and implementing our first-ever MOOC (though instead of Massive Open Online Course, we changed the “C” to mean Collaboration). It was part of the Summer of Making and Connecting, and as intriguing and exciting as this concept may sound to you, I am not here to actually talk about the “what,” but...
CLMOOC is a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience that is open to anyone who is interested in making, creativity, and learning. In it, we designed and engaged in "makes"—creative projects—that tap into our personal (and professional) interests.
As mystical as Twitter can sound to those who don't use it, others, like me, find that it can be a venue for surprisingly deep conversations.  In particular, Twitter chats can be a great way to explore a topic with a group of like-minded folks. In a typical Twitter chat, an hour-long synchronous discussion is held around a specific set of questions. Tweets that are a part of these chats are...
