By VanessaVaile, Feed Name: MOOC Madness
Preview: It’s Week 4 in  POT Cert but not everywhere in the electronic schoolyard. Other courses, are in other weeks. For example, Coursera’s Fantasy SF is in Week 10, the final week, essay on Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother due Tuesday.

Post Title: Connectivism…Internet and teaching…good or bad???
By childrenandhistory, Feed Name: Teaching Children and History
Preview: In reading about connectivism in this article and many others I have come back to the question of : Does being connected help or hurt teaching?   I know this question is a huge double-edged sword.  I see great arguments from … Continue reading →

Post Title: Why am I just learning about this now?!
By Richele Young, Feed Name: Creativity & Multicultural Communication
Preview: I am taking a few other courses through SUNY and this week it seems they all relate heavily to the concept of connectivism. I am reading a few books but two in particular specifically talk about the way education has been constructed and designed... and why it is not working. Both books talk about the importance of making connections in learning and working with people to create new ideas, about ....

Post Title:
By VanessaVaile, Feed Name: MOOC Madness
Preview: ...that covers most of the classes I am behind on blogging for or about. The notorious x-MOOC, a name hinting at both edX and (at least to me) the skull and cross bones flag, this time flown by edu-biz corporate raiders. Alas, traditional higher education is not doing so well at telling them apart. Such is [...]

Post Title: Unconventional History
By childrenandhistory, Feed Name: Teaching Children and History
Preview: What I love about history (teaching and learning history) is that there are so many ways to look at the past a share it with others.  The group of students I am working with spent some time today working on … Continue reading →

Post Title: Week 3 Wayfinding
By Richele Young, Feed Name: Creativity & Multicultural Communication
Preview: I'm starting to get more comfortable with the layout of the MOOC. I like learning about all the new information each week and picking and choosing sort of what fits on the path I'm taking. I like the concept of wayfinding. I found some pretty cool videos on youtube that I posted on my twitter. I'm definitely a visual learner so that video made sense to me. I guess at this point ....

Post Title: Learning isn’t Linear and Neither is Living
By wolfinthenight13, Feed Name: wolfinthenight13
Preview: I really enjoyed the video clip from this weeks readings by Sir Ken Robinson. It got me thinking, if him and so many other famous speakers are talking about this and agree that learning isn’t linear and that kids should be allowed freedom to explore and find their passion, why aren’t things changing? Instead more [...]

Post Title: Political Standing
By wolfinthenight13, Feed Name: wolfinthenight13
Preview: So with the heat rising for this years presidential election I thought to myself, maybe it”s about time I learn a thing or two… I am old enough to vote and registered, yet I have no interest in politics. With the state of America and rising troubles in the world I figured I should slowly [...]

Title: x MOOCs
Preview: The image BIG ED taking on the role of pirates to the fat richness of the MOOC fleet seems odd. Kind of a role reversal don't you think? Imagine their surprise when cannon balls rebound off the rafted herd of air filled cow skins that constitute structure in a MOOC ...

Title: Left-Brain/Right-Brain Functions
Preview: We have two eyes, two ears, two hands, and two minds. Our left brain thinks in terms of words and symbols while our right brain thinks in terms of images. The left side is the side used more by writiers, mathematicians, and scientists; the right side by artists, craftspeople, and musicians. Remembering a persons name is a function of the left-brain memory while rembering their face is a function .......

Title: Digital Storytelling: Pitcher Plants
Preview: I think it's a great idea sharing your writing from another class! I am a writer and avid reader, and I think it's great to try and lose that fear of "not being good enough". I really liked your piece on pitcher plants. I think it will be refreshing to have your posts to read through and I actually really like your writing style. The ending was perfect. I myself have a minor case of bi-.......

Title: Re: What is a MOOC? And what direction would you like to see it go?
Preview: Not much discussion of this I notice. This announcement caught my eye when it appeared in the Sept 23 Daily. For some reason, I couldn't stop to comment at the time but then I lost track of it and had to hunt it down, which turned out to be more of a nuisance than expected. And I count myself a fair dab at finding things online. The Announcements list, upper left, takes you to the current ....

Title: Re: What's At Play Here? #CMC11
Preview: Diigo is just like using bookmarks on your internet browser, like firefox. once you make a diigo account, you can add the diigo toolbar. every time you come across anything interesting you'd like to save, you can easily add it to your library via the tool bar and tag it with cmc so others can see what you're looking
