This is to let you know about ETMOOC  -   an open, online experience, that is designed to facilitate & nurture conversations around the thoughtful integration of educational technology & media in teaching and learning  http://etmooc.org .
 
The plan is for the experience to be situated somewhere between a course and a community. The conversations will take place in many different spaces – through the use of social networks, collaborative tools, shared hashtags, and in personalized spaces. What #etmooc eventually becomes, and what it will mean to you, will depend upon the ways in which you participate and the participation and activities of all of its members. Let’s see if we can create something that is not just another hashtag – and, not just another course.
 
Some exciting topics will be explored during the #etmooc experience. We’ll be leading conversations around many of the recently popularized technologies, media and literacies including social/participatory media, blended/online learning environments, digital literacies, open education, digital citizenship/identity, copyright/copyleft, and multimedia in education. We hope that this list of topics will grow as we expand our membership and tap into the expertise of our participants.
 
Are  you interested in participating? Do you have colleagues or students who would benefit from this type of experience? This will be a totally open, online, fully free opportunity.  Please forward this information to anyone who you think might be interested.
 
ETMOOC will begin in the week of January 13, 2013 and is designed to run for at least 10 weeks. We’d love to have you participate, and feel free to bring as many friends as you like. If you are at all interested, please consider signing up: http://etmooc.org/register/
 
If you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to let me know.
 
We’re looking forward to a great experience – and we truly hope that you can join us!
Valerie
