Entrepreneurship in Education 101 - An Open Online Course

Entrepreneurship in Education 101 - An Open Online Course | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Via EdSurge

 

"This should be fun: a massively open online course (MOOC) on edtech startups, brought to you by David Wiley (Brigham Young), one of the guys who started the idea, Richard Culatta (Dept of Ed), and Todd Manwaring (also BYU). The "course"--if you could call it that--also features a cool lineup of contributors including Fred Wilson (Union Square Ventures), Mark Surman (Mozilla), Jose Ferreira (Knewton), and even EdSurge's Betsy Corcoran. C'mon, climb in!"

 

From the course website

 

"Entrepreneurship in Education ("Ed Startup" for short) is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) after the old style - one that focuses more on building community and learning together socially than on watching video clips and answering multiple choice questions. Ed Startup is designed to acquaint educators, educational researchers, and others to the world of entrepreneurship and intrapeneurship, help you decide which one is right for you, and support you in the first steps of your journey. During the course you’ll learn directly with an incredible group of experts (people who have done it before and succeeded) as well as with peers (people who are passionate about making a change for the first time), and work toward transforming your own innovative idea – or another innovative idea established in the research – into a well-designed product or service that can improve the lives of teachers and learners.


Ed Startup is completely free and is open to anyone. The course meets weekly from August 27 to December 14th."

Reflections of an English and Speech Teacher: No Man is an Island: Collaboration

Reflections of an English and Speech Teacher: No Man is an Island: Collaboration | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Stephanie Sukow: Recently, I had an opportunity to sit down with a newer teacher (friend from grade school) to share resources. My friend just got a job as a middle school choir and drama teacher. While he is a pro at teaching choir, he does not have a ton of experience with drama. Even though I teach drama to high school seniors, we sat down, went through unit by unit, talked about how materials that could be adapted, discussed literacy, and reminisced about our own high school musical and theatre experiences. Going through my curriculum like that and acting as a somewhat "coach" for his new course, really made me think about how important collaboration is.
