Blog Post: Final Thoughts
When I first started this course I was in chaos. I didn’t really understand the point. Even after the first week and you hear and see several definitions of what a MOOC is and how to participate in one, your mind still rebels. I’m one of those people like Hermione Granger, grades are everything to [...]

Blog Post: Google Hangout
Figured I’d make a blog post as well, just in case people don’t follow facebook fully. I was wondering if anyone wanted to do another Google Hangout this week to discuss and brainstorm ideas for our final presentations. I know I want to do some sort of hands on projects, but not sure on what [...]

Blog Post: Youth and Creativity
As I was reading the NBC news article, one of the articles provided in this weeks readings, I came across this sentence, “a recent study found that, at least in their playtime, kids are becoming more imaginative.” I honestly have to disagree with that. I grew up with a brother who is seven years my [...]

Blog Post: FYI
I will be dropping off the face of the planet for the rest of the week. We are beginning to move some of our lesser needed items into the new house tomorrow, along with finishing the deck and any other last minute details. I will then be busy all of Thanksgiving since I am sharing [...]

Blog Post: CMC11 Reflection
After replying to a post in the discussions area, I felt like posting my thoughts so far on the course. I’ve made some general posts about this, confusion in the beginning, and just some general thoughts on what we’ve been learning. But I feel it’s time to speak my mind. If any of you knew [...]

Blog Post: Classical Music
Just now watched the video, thanks for that Carol! Those kids were so darn cute. I absolutely loved the idea. It reminded me how much I actually do like a lot of classical music. The idea to bend your favorite lyrics to the old “beats” is an inventive and fun idea. If this is how [...]

Blog Post: Symptoms Of Spiritual Awakening
Upon reading this webpage I was interested to see what the rest of the website was like. I don’t know if anyone else has explored through it yet, but it was highly interesting and relatable to me. I’m not sure if I’m one of these “Indigo” people, but the website definitely sparked an interest to [...]

Blog Post: Frequency Illusion
This bias is when a word, name, or object becomes the focus of your attention, and then it seems to appear everywhere. I think this most commonly see when someone buys a new car. You get a new car, you really love it, and then it seems like everyone has it. This was the case [...]

Blog Post: Functional Fixedness
This bias is based on people using an object only in the traditionally thought of way. So far from the biases I have read though, this one really strikes home with me. I think outside the box, but when it comes to taking a simple, everyday item and finding new uses for it in order [...]

Blog Post: Endowment Effect
Lost track of time yesterday and didn’t make a post. So going to make this one now and might post again before I head to bed. The endowment effect is a bias based on possessions and what they are worth to us. Picture yourself at a yard sale where you are the one selling stuff. [...]

Blog Post: Denomination effect
If the storm permits it, I would like to make one small post daily about the activity from week 8 pertaining to biases. I haven’t read the whole list yet, I’m going in order from top to bottom and when I see one that interests or pertains to me I will post about it. I [...]

Blog Post: A Crash Course in Creativity: Thoughts
I had a chance to watch the video today and had some thoughts. After watching the video the questions “are you a puzzle or quilt maker” made more sense. I would say I’m a quilt maker. Honestly I don’t know how anyone could be a puzzle maker. Not all problems and situations are the same, [...]

Blog Post: Digital Learning
After watching Gardner’s video I agreed with a lot of what he had to say, and I wanted to try out some of his discussion questions. for the first question about ethics something immediately came to mind, theft. From running my own blog and being around in different blogging communities and from art websites I [...]

Blog Post: Learning isn’t Linear and Neither is Living
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 [...]

Blog Post: Political Standing
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 [...]

Blog Post: First Time
This is my first time using wordpress and compared to tumblr I personally do not enjoy it, but because tumblr doesn’t work in our MOOC, here I am. Of course I am open to trying new things, so if any of you other MOOCers know or like wordpress, I would love any tips. It’s set [...]

Blog Post: Thinking Outside the Box
I just wanted to throw out there that I am interested in anything that has to do with writing or art. I am a very creative person and love trying to think outside the box. So any articles or activities or whatever that pertains to these I would be highly interested in. I of course [...]

Blog Post: Revolutionizing Education
RSA Animate – Changing Education Paradigms (by theRSAorg) I absolutely LOVE this video. I hated school. Everything I was taught was complete trash that I will never use in real life. The things we use the most are English and basic math skills. My art, photography, and English classes were my favorite. I think all [...]

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't [...]

Hello everyone my name is Katie. So I'm taking the Creativity and Multicultural Communications course at the advanced level to get credit while I attend Empire State online. I'm going through all the readings right now for the first week of class and figured I'd get a jump start and also introduce myself. As I'm [...]
