toyjoy.html | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
ToyJoy means that the students simultaneously collect toys in order to send them to Botswana, where the toys will be distributed to underprivileged children in orphanages, kindergartens etc. In distribution we will use the contacts made within the international education and resource network - I*EARN. The idea of ToyJoy is to collect and share a dear toy that will bring joy to another child on the other side of the world. The toys, even if second-hand, must be in good shape and intact. It is an essential part of the general idea that the toys are not brand new, because new toys can be bought by the parents and lack all sentimental value. In ToyJoy the students/children give away something of their own which they have cared for. Even though a child does not have any money it may be good for him/her to realize through this project that some children have too man toys and some have too few .. or maybe none at all.

A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age

A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Work on this Bill of Rights & Principles began in Palo Alto, California, on December 14, 2012. We convened a group of people passionate about learning, about serving today's students, and about using every tool we could imagine to respond better to the needs of students in a global, interactive, digitally connected world.  

 

...

 

We believe that online learning represents a powerful and potentially awe-inspiring opportunity to make new forms of learning available to all students worldwide, whether young or old, learning for credit, self-improvement, employment, or just pleasure.  We believe that online courses can create "meaningful" as well as “massive" learning opportunities.

 

We are aware of how much we don't know: that we have yet to explore the full pedagogical potential of learning online, of how it can change the ways we teach, the ways we learn, and the ways we connect.  

iEARN-USA's insight:
Global contribution

"Online learning should originate from everywhere on the globe, not just from the U.S. and other technologically advantaged countries.  The best courses will be global in design and contribution, offering multiple and multinational perspectives.  They should maximize opportunities for students from different countries to collaborate with one another, to contribute local knowledge and histories and to learn one another’s methods, assumptions, values, knowledge and points of view."
