Donna Presz's insight:

I would look at this as an advertising ploy by the online bookstores. The only difference in prices nowadays are iTunes vs. Amazon.

 Free Online Workshops to create a Virtual Learning Commons

 

Forwarded from David Loertscher, Professor, San Jose State University

 

For the past three years, my students, leaders across Canada, and I have been developing the Virtual Learning Commons as a replacement for the school library website. This is a giant collaborative that places the school library at the heart of teaching and learning in the school.

 

I will be conducting a series of three free workshops that will enable you to experiment with and create a VLC for your school. And, you will have something to showcase for Digital Learning Day in February.

 

The  three  ninety minutes sessions will be Jan. 14, 21, and Feb. 4th at five pm Pacific/eight pm eastern on each of the Monday evenings.

Objective: To create a collaborative virtual learning commons that replaces the school library website. The site will contain five major  virtual rooms: 

The Information Center, The Literacy Center, the Knowledge Building Center, The Experimental Learning Center, and School Culture. 

 

We will focus on using Google Sites as the construction tool, but other software can be used. Participants will  construct either a sandbox prototype or a real VLC for their school. Opportunities to collaborate across participants will be the focus.

 

To sign up, just send an email to me at: reader.david@gmail.com

 

And, I would appreciate it if you would announce this across whatever state networks you have access to.

 

The website for the series is building at: https://sites.google.com/site/virtuallearningcommonsworkshop/
