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:
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: email@example.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/
