"Teach the Web has something for everyone who wants to get more closely involved with the Making and Learning Movements. #teachtheweb seeks to create an online space to connect, explore and make – and then transfer that energy into real life learning spaces.

 

In this 9-week course you’ll work with others on projects that hone your web teaching skills. Posts on the Topics and Tasks will be published weekly and experienced Webmaker Super Mentors are ready to give tips on tech and facilitation support. #teachtheweb"

 

from source: http://hivenyc.org/teachtheweb/

ghbrett's insight:

This looks to be a very interesting and useful making activity. #teachtheweb already has introduced me to new tools for producing and publishing content and media for web resources that can be used for education and other areas.

Sophistry Blog: From OER to cMOOC to github: A proposal for Open Education | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

I have been a learning technologist for 10 years and in that time I have seen at least 3 VLE silos being emptied or recycled or replaced.

Worth following up.

tami neuthal 's curator insight, May 1, 2013 2:48 AM

למי שקצת מתעניין באוצרות מתקדמת: איך משמרים תוכנות, קטעי קוד, "שיחות" שלמות ותהליכי פיתוח של משאבים לימודיים כדי לאפשר שימוש חוזר או שימוש ועיבוד מחדש. הצעה מעניינת ברוח "מרכזיות הקוד" של המתכנתים בקוד פתוח.

זה נושא מדובר מאוד כבר עשור שלם בהמשך לתנועת השימוש ב-OER (משאבי למידה פתוחים) . הכותב מציע להתיחס גם לשיח המשתמשים ולדיוים הלימודיים והמשאבים הנגזרים מאותם משאבים פתוחים כ"משאבים דיגיטליים" שיש לשמר ולאפשר לכלל הציבור לגשת אליהם ולהשתמש בהם.
