HI Toni! I was in Shanghai last December. I work with www.GlobalEd.ca and we work with BC Offshore Schools like Sino Canada. Did you enjoy your Shanghai experience? How is it being home again? Did you miss google while you were away?
Hi all, my name is Sue Bedard and I reside in Florida. I am knowledgeable about many of the tools and connections being shared so far. I am interested in connected with others to see how they use the tools, and how they will be used with students. I am looking forward to the next several weeks. I hope I can keep up!! :)
I hoep the fact that you have a base already will guide you towards connecting with others...that's where some of the great learning takes place!
Hi all..... time zones... argh... we are on mid year break and of course I chose not to check my inbox and missed the live session.... ahh well there is always next week... love doing online sessions on the couch :)
a bit about me... I am an eLearning facilitator/leader at a large Melbourne (Australia) multi campus high school - Years 7 - 12 (ages 11 - 18)
I love sharing the tech I find out about, and try to help other teachers use the tech we have to make life easier...I have been involved in social media for a number of years... and I love learning new things...
Hoping I can get a lot out of these sessions, and I can give some back as well...
ahhhh beautiful sunny winter's day....enjoy
I would love to hear about what kinds of "instructional design" approaches that you are using for your students. Whiel I love offering open MOOC like courses for all - in the fall, I will be applying a "scaffolded" approach to integrating connected learning ideas to our Moodle LMS and encouraging our teachers to think about different online teaching options. What LMS do you use, or are you open source? Verena :)
Hi. I'm Digi-Detective Rita from Philadelphia and happy to part of this group. Hope to learn from all the digital sleuths and we become more aware of the impact of digital footprints for myself and students that I teach.
Hello Digi Detective Rita! Love the name! Welcome to the course!
Sounds like you have a busy year ahead of you. When I heard someone classify "computer skills" s digital, media and technology literacies, it made me even more aware that we all have strengths in "computer skills" - just not necessarily the same ones. Being a great texter or facebooker, does NOT make you a great online researcher. However, it makes you a great a connecting and networking. Thinking about the skills we can all offer to the "ecology" of connected learning will help everyone learn digital, media and technology skills. I think a big part of this will be encouraging our students to lead and guide as well?
Can I view the course that was posted on July 5th? I am in a different time zone and I could not stay awake for the entire presentation. Nothing about your presentation, just a few long days that wiped me out.
