The goal of this session is to think beyond the Learning Management System (LMS) structure for course delivery, to include creating virtual spaces that support personal development and lifelong learning for both students and the educators who teach...
Listen to an amazing man with research-based practical ideas on how to teach in and out of the classroom. In fact, his hole-in-the wall experiment may revolutionize how we view organized education. Did I say may? Let me correct myself and say will. Yes, we can now show evidence that learners need facilitators and socially engaging learning activities. If schools won't provide it, teachers will. Join the talk for free and learn all about the experiment and how to move forward for our children and the future of the world:http://www.wiziq.com/course/27123-sugata-mitra
You're not alone as a teacher or learner, anymore. You can now join teachers from around the world and share information. You are invited to join a free hands-on professional development course for educators and/or anyone who wants to share information in a socially meaningful way.
The course includes live online classes (with recordings), content (via the courseware), discussions (via the course feed), and hands-on activities. Participants will create videos using Webcams via WizIQ classes, screencast-o-matic, upload to Youtube and Vimeo for blended learning, the flipped class, and to market their online courses. Participants will learn how to teach with the use of web technologies such as blogs, wikis, google drive, badges, the WizIQ live class, Moodle, social networks, and videos.
Participants who complete the tasks will receive a certificate of participation.
The current Moodle MOOC is in its second week. The participants are eager to learn and share their explorations, learning and teaching experiences, and findings with each other. The energy is high for sharing and learning.
Task for Week 1 Questions are important to learning. I follow the KWHL method of acquiring information. The idea behind the method is for participants to learn about what they know and decide what they wish to learn.
You will create a chart and plot what you know, what you want to learn, how and where you will get the information, and summarize what you learned. You then go back and list what you know, what you would still want to learn and so on. Learning is ongoing and so is the KWHL process.
Task for Week 2 In week 2, participants will learn about and create engaging activities for other teachers in the MOOC. Please team up and learn about your fellow Moodlers' students and how to create engaging activities for them. The task for week 2 is to demonstrate the activity you learned in real time. Yes, you will be teaching and recording/video tapping yourself as you do. This is not an "about" task. It is the real thing. You may work in teams and co-teach the activity.
Task for Week 3 In week 3, participants will learn about and demonstrate how to teach and learn online. The task of the week is to conduct a literature study on teaching and learning online. Participants will create an interactive digital artifact of their findings.
Task for Week 4 In week 4, participants will explore and teach in a live virtual class using the WizIQ plugin activity directly from Moodle. Here’s a video tutorial on WizIQ activity on the Moodle and how to schedule and teach a virtual class. You may practise using the WizIQ plugin activity in the following Moodle course called WizIQ Practice Area. Here’s more about WizIQ plugin activity on Moodle.
Participants will also be able to schedule a WizIQ activity on the managers course (M4M).
The task of the final week is to schedule a live class, add content, teach, and share the recording for feedback from the participants. You may invite friends and colleagues to your session.
Moodle MOOC 2 on WizIQ will start on October 1, 2013. Join this class to learn more about the MOOC. Participants will learn about the course areas, the workload and tasks for the course, and about the certificates of participation.
