#OpenEd13 Presentation – We Have Lost the Term “MOOC”

Video of my presentation MOOCseum:  Using the Open Movement to Invigorate Local Museums is posted below.  Attendees were engaged and responsive, and the numbers were impressive especially considering this was the final presentation slot at the conference.

Conversations Around Art Help Us See More Than What We Think We See!

Week 2 of MoMA’s Art and Inquiry challenged educators to think about “how teachers can help students use contextual information productively within dialogues about art“.
