Multi-tasking
Technology is making multi-tasking easier and easier, but is there a price? How does multitasking affect learning? Is it overloading our brains or does it help develop skills necessary for effective learning?

Dr. Nellie Deutsch's curator insight, June 3, 2013 10:23 AM

I'd like you to think of the Moodle MOOC on WizIQ: http://www.wiziq.com/course/20705-teaching-with-moodle as an event that is taking place in a city or town, at a hotel, campus, in a building, in a neighborhood, or at a park/camping area. You may share images of how you visualize the Moodle MOOC.

You don't have to drive or walk from room to room, building to building or house to house. All you need to do is click, touch, push a button, use the keyboard, or give your computer or mobile device a voice or gesture command (if you have these). However, you will need to have access to the Internet and to a device to get you to the learning environments.

In week 1, you will be getting acquainted with each other, the layout of the course, and learning about your personal and professional needs as a learner and teacher. 

There are 3 main learning environments on the MOOC:

WizIQ with the courseware for the live online sessions and recordings, for the content (tutorials) and coursefeed for ongoing discussions during and after the MOOC). Google Drive (interactive syllabus is also available on WizIQ)
Moodle experience is available on http://moodle4teachers.org/ with 3 separate Moodle experience courses and conversations (see below) organized for each of the weeks (topics of Moodle MOOC)
Moodle practice for teacher role, manager role, and administrator role is available on http://www.integrating-technology.com/moodle 
You are invited to join the conversations on the frontpage of moodle4teachers.org:

Conversation on Moodle Layout (Activities, Resources, Blocks):http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?f=17
Conversation on Creating Engaging Activities: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?f=18

Conversation on Going Beyond the Moodle MOOC for Active Lifelong Learning:http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?f=21
Finally, an upgraded version of the recording of the opening ceremony is now available for downloading and viewing.

For ongoing questions, suggestions, and comments, please use the following forums:

Time off to relax and develop quality of mind and heart.

Dr. Nellie Deutsch's curator insight, December 22, 2012 8:12 AM

We spend hours doing things for others, whether at home and at the office or school. Isn't it time we found time to devote to ourselves? Take some time off and listen to music, walk for no reason in the park, or do things that were unrelated to work or family.

 

I have been practicing mindful living and relaxation for a number of years, so I can improve the quality of my mind and heart. That's all I needed, so that I can recharge and manage everything else in my life. One way of taking time off from my duties and turning to myself is through learning and music.

 

Learning without stress and having fun is a great way to start the new year. Jason R. Levine is going to give live sessions with recordings, so we can listen to music and relax anywhere and at any time with the recordings. Join the fun starting January 13, 2013

Let's do things differently for a change... | Multi-tasking | Scoop.it

John Dewey tried to defend the Alexander technique as scientific and valuable to know. In an introduction to a book written by the founder of the technique, Dewey summarizes one of Alexander's premises that one cannot judge whether things will work or not if "one uses the very conditions that need re-education as one's standard of judgement" (see The Use of the Self by F. M. Alexander, 1932,1985). We need to change our strategies unless we want to to get the same results. So, read this with an open mind and try something different, now: http://www.wiziq.com/blog/make-money-online-now/

Twitter Hacker on the Loose!

Twitter Hacker on the Loose! | Multi-tasking | Scoop.it

FYI, there's a hacker with a great spam if you fall for it, which I did. It comes from your twitter contacts and it says someone is saying bad things about you. A link follows the message. If you click on the link, your twitter account is hacked and it begins to send the spam. I changed my password so I'm out of the loop, but the game is still on so don't click on the link if you get the message from someone else. So, if you are curious and click on the link, people will be saying bad things about you.

 

Let's make our online presence a good one by warning each other so we do not fall into the traps that are being developed as I write this. Let your friends know about this hacker so that we can have a safe online exchange.

Dear Colleagues,

You're not alone as a teacher or learner, anymore. You can now join teachers from around the world and share information. You are invited to join a free hands-on professional development course for educators and/or anyone who wants to share information in a socially meaningful way. 

The course includes live online classes (with recordings), content (via the courseware), discussions (via the course feed), and hands-on activities. Participants will create videos using Webcams via WizIQ classes, screencast-o-matic, upload to Youtube and Vimeo for blended learning, the flipped class, and to market their online courses. Participants will learn how to teach with the use of web technologies such as blogs, wikis, google drive, badges, the WizIQ live class, Moodle, social networks, and videos. 

Participants who complete the tasks will receive a certificate of participation.

You're all invited to the first Moodle MOOC in the world on WizIQ: http://www.wiziq.com/course/20705-teaching-with-moodle

Dr. Nellie Deutsch's insight:

Subject: Tasks for Moodle MOOC on WizIQ for June 2013

Message: Dear Members of Moodle MOOC on WizIQ,

Congratulations on doing an awesome job asking questions in week 1. Hope you got some answers, too. 

Many participants have been anxious to know what's ahead so here are the tasks for weeks 1-4. You may access them on the interactive syllabus and ask questions or add comments on the syllabus. 

Tasks for Weeks 1-4: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-yrsOH1uHYdqJqvfYHjQ-KDszWkOp_dyOYphLPAoSNc/edit#heading=h.so6a5xl84772

Task for Week 1
Questions are important to learning. I follow the KWHL method of acquiring information. The idea behind the method is for participants to learn about what they know and decide what they wish to learn. 

You will create a chart and plot what you know, what you want to learn, how and where you will get the information, and summarize what you learned. You then go back and list what you know, what you would still want to learn and so on. Learning is ongoing and so is the KWHL process. 

Please share the task for week 1 here: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=74

You may do it during week 2 or work at your own pace. Here's a tutorial for the task for week one and how your're going to work throughout the course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HWrRSsx9XIU

Task for Week 2
In week 2, participants will learn about and create engaging activities for other teachers in the MOOC. Please team up and learn about your fellow Moodlers' students and how to create engaging activities for them. The task for week 2 is to demonstrate the activity you learned in real time. Yes, you will be teaching and recording/video tapping yourself as you do. This is not an "about" task. It is the real thing. You may work in teams and co-teach the activity. 

Please share the task for week 2 here: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=73 

Task for Week 3
In week 3, participants will learn about and demonstrate how to teach and learn online. The task of the week is to conduct a literature study on teaching and learning online. Participants will create an interactive digital artifact of their findings. 

Please share the task for week 3 here: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=76 

Task for Week 4
In week 4, participants will explore and teach in a live virtual class using the WizIQ plugin activity directly from Moodle. Here’s a video tutorial on WizIQ activity on the Moodle and how to schedule and teach a virtual class. You may practise using the WizIQ plugin activity in the following Moodle course called WizIQ Practice Area. Here’s more about WizIQ plugin activity on Moodle. 

Participants will also be able to schedule a WizIQ activity on the managers course (M4M). 

The task of the final week is to schedule a live class, add content, teach, and share the recording for feedback from the participants. You may invite friends and colleagues to your session. 

Please share the task for week 4 here: http://moodle4teachers.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=77

Please access the interactive syllabus, ask question and add your comments to it:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-yrsOH1uHYdqJqvfYHjQ-KDszWkOp_dyOYphLPAoSNc/edit?usp=sharing
