K-12 Teaching in the 21st Century MOOC - Findings

K-12 Teaching in the 21st Century MOOC - Findings | School Leaders & Digital Technologies | Scoop.it

With support from partners around the United States as well as co-facilitators from various institutions and organizations, the MOOC was developed and implemented from a connectivist pedagogy. Participants were encouraged to act as both participants and leaders in a conversation about connected learning, personalization, collaboration, and reflection. The course was unique in the sense that its intended audience included K-12 students interested in teaching, preservice teachers, and inservice teachers. The goal of inviting such an audience was to facilitate a conversation that supported learning through collaborative professional development.
