Learn Like an Arachnid: Why I’m MOOCifying | Hybrid Pedagogy | Janine DeBaise

Learn Like an Arachnid: Why I’m MOOCifying | Hybrid Pedagogy | Janine DeBaise | kgitch on learning and technology | Scoop.it

"When [my students] do group projects in the research/composition course I teach, I’m impressed with their topics, the depth of their knowledge, and their passion. 

What seems wrong is that their presentations are only to each other. Sure, they invite their friends, but at a small college where everyone takes a whole bunch of the same courses, that’s not a very satisfying audience. The students teach me and have changed me -- dramatically -- but I shouldn’t be the only person to benefit from their knowledge and fresh ideas.

 

...

 

I want to help weave them -- and their circles of connection -- into a sparkling web that stretches around the globe. I want them to figure out how to do this not just for one semester, but for the rest of their lives."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, January 16, 2013 9:11 AM

Janine DeBaise got her epiphany, as she calls it, on how to go about this when she participated in MOOC MOOC, a MOOC about MOOCs. And she started to structure her course in Environmental Science and Foresty along the lines of what she'd learnt in that course on MOOC pedagogy. 

 

I like her story, because it points out so well what I have often argued for, that if we take lifelong learning seriously, college should prepare students for life as a professional. I mean really prepare them, by initiating them already in a professional network and by exposing them to the tools needed to participate in such a network effectively.

 

Janine's story is well worth reading for this reason alone. Apart from that, it is a nice personal account, with which many teachers will be able to identify, I am sure. (@pbsloep).

Karin Gitchel's insight:

“Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Throughout history, storytelling has been used to share knowledge, wisdom, and values. Stories have taken many different forms. Stories have been adapted to each successive medium that has emerged, from the circle of the campfire to the silver screen, and now the computer screen.” (Leslie Rule, Digital Storytelling Association)

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: ‘dropout’ a category mistake, look at ‘uptake’? | kgitch on learning and technology | Scoop.it

MOOCs must not be seen as failure factories. They must rise above the education models that filter and weed out learners through failure. Good MOOCs will allow you to truly go at your own pace, to stop and start, go off on an exploratory path and return again. This is what true adult learning is and should be. I always drop out of learning experiences as I never go on formal courses. I decide when I’ve had enough. They should not copy but complement or construct new models of learning.
