We were lucky to have a visit from both Alec Couros (URegina) and Bryan Jackson (#tiegrad 1.0 alum and Coquitlam high school teacher).
Bryan used open online courses in his approach to teaching Open Guitar 12 and Open Philosophy 12 years back, but they are great examples for inspiration. Also, check out the more recent version of Open Guitar 12. You can follow Bryan on Twitter, visit his blog, or check out his MEd Project from UVic #tiegrad 1.0.
Another open course example, which also sits static for continuous access, is DS106.
We’ll discuss their approaches and I’ll update this blog post after class. We do need to consider our approach with creating our collective blog:
- Posts vs. Pages
- Use a hashtag?
- Consider a Twitter chat?
- Featured images
- Discuss examples
- Approve or not approve posts before posting
- Editor vs. Admin
Resources mentioned in chat:
- Howard Rheingold
- Use blur background or photo background feature in Zoom to block out a person’s socio-economic status
- Alec shared his teaching approach via his EC&I 830 syllabus and weekly plans. He also shared these resources:
- Alec mentioned Dave Cormier and Bryan shared his blog post on community as curriculum
- Trevor shared this CNet post on Teams and Zoom
- Bryan mentioned Jim Groom and also shared this pic about community and the idea of digital storytelling by the campfire by Guilia Forsythe
