Jim Lerman's insight:
In the summer of 2014, The National Writing Project and KQED produced a MOOC called ThinkDoNow, with support from the MacArthur Foundation.
The six webinars that formed the basis of the MOOC are archived on the site of the Educator Innovator here. You will see them identified as Episodes #1-#6.
Below, please find a brief description of the MOOC and its topics:
"#TeachDoNow is a collaborative learning experience in partnership with the National Writing Project open to anyone interested in learning how to use Twitter and other media sharing applications to promote social and civic discourse with students around science, news and the arts. It will take place online this summer from July 7 – August 17.
"Weekly activities will center around KQED’s Do Now, a weekly activity for students to engage and respond to current issues using social media tools. We will engage in weekly discussions that encourage us to go deep into current issues surrounding education, learn new digital tools we can employ with our students, share and discuss our results, and explore the ways to effectively promote digital conversations with our students."
