Hey #ETMOOC

I’ve noticed that a lot of activity for #etmooc has been happening inside Google Plus, in their fantastic new Community.  Its a wonderful space and tool and I am so happy to see more people jumping into G+ and giving it a whirl to see what its all about!…

Wish for the road to be long…


Picture by Leo Reynolds

It's when I get lost in a country I don't know that I find the most unexpected wonderful things. So, I'm trying to get advantage of the fact that I'm a bit lost in ETMOOC... (Am I the only one?) Besides, before taking my compass out of the pocket, I like revisiting Ithaca and wishing...…

Learning through blogging as part of a connectivist MOOC

I was asked to facilitate sessions on blogging for the Massive Open Online Course on Educational Technology (#ETMOOC).  You can read more about connectivist MOOC’s and #ETMOOC here.

I’ve written this post to help participants better understand the ideas I discussed in my session and to make it easier to access the resources I recommend.…

Like Spokes on a Wheel

As the ETMOOC gets underway in earnest, many of the participants will be blogging about their learning, some for the very first time.  As participants draw connections between their ideas, these blog posts will rub up against one another, and like spokes centred on a common central idea, we'll all be able to move forward together.…

Seek, make-sense and share (then repeat)

As I’ve attempted to keep up with mass of information flowing through ETMOOC this week, my mind has turned to reflecting on the work of Harold Jarche and his writings on personal knowledge management (PKM). (I discovered his work years ago as he occasionally skewers the public education system here in New Brunswick, but that would be a whole other post).…

Mural.ly turns minutes into seconds

As a participant in #etmooc I was introduced to the writing tool on BlackBoard Collaborate that enables dozens of participants to type responses to questions on a virtual white board. It's fun to watch the page populate with ideas (silently). 

I was hoping to find something similar to use without having to use BB and now I find Mural.ly, referenced in The Cultivating Change blog

I’ll use Mural.ly to give more students a chance to make their ideas visible.

Advice (to myself) on working in the #etmooc

In “Is that a question I see before me?” Stacey Kerr remarks that holding a question in mind when she sits down to read through the content of the MOOC is a helpful strategy she discovered at the advice of another participant, Jeff Merrell.…

Starting the Project.. .Adding the Technology

So, anyone that has been reading my dribble here may have seen my comments on starting a project with my classes on finding water on Mars.  We’re starting with learning about the Moon, the only planetary body in the solar system humans have visited.…

I feel conflicted about wanting more followers….

January 18

I just watched the “Intro to Twitter” session for #etmooc.  I’m already using Twitter and I have a whopping 40-some followers.  And if I’m being honest, I’m ok with that, for now.  

I am definitely in the “lurker stage” of connectedness.  …

The Power of Visible Learning

I enjoy reading Hattie’s work (Visible Learning and Visible Learning for Teachers), but in all the quality time I have spent with Hattie’s writing, I have only really thought about how it applied to children/students.

My first day in #etMOOC changed all that.…
