21st Century Learning #201 - October 30, 2013

21st Century Learning is back with a new season! We've even got a new numbering convention, because we've lost track of our show #. We're starting with 201 this season. We are trying to use Google Hangouts on Air as our streaming mechanism. Today's show was a test run, and a pretty good one. We haven't figured out how to connect the Q&A so that people can be in the chatroom or asking questions, but we'll get there.

In the mean time, hear us discussing the starts of our years, Chromebooks, Gary Stager, schedules, and more. Oh my!

Paul Allison and Chris Sloan host:

  • Jo Paraiso, teacher at Fremont High School, Oakland and Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age member
  • Timothy Burke, School Partnerships at Gooru
  • Leah Jensen, Instructional Tech Lead at Oakland Unified School District
  • Andrew Wyndham, School Partnerships at Gooru

We brainstorm several use-case possibilities such as:

  • What if students used Gooru to keep a portfolio of the articles they've read, podcasts they've listened to, videos they've viewed?
  • How could teachers and students build collections together, using the copy tools in Gooru?
  • How can we use resource narrations and the new Classpages to guide and inspire students as they are using different collections?

We hope you enjoy this conversation between teachers re-imagining online education using Gooru, and if you missed the first TTT webcast with Gooru you can listen to the recording here: http://edtechtalk.com/node/5165

Enjoy!

TTT#359 Scaffolding the Blogging Process with Teachers in the Dakota Writing Project's Digital Writing Sandbox 7.31.13


66:42 minutes (45.8 MB)

Michelle Rogge Gannon and I invite you to join us on this episode of TTT (which was recorded 7.31.13). Earlier in the summer, Michelle wrote:

Some of the teachers in the Dakota Writing Project Digital Writing Sandbox are asking for resources on scaffolding the blogging process and on evaluating blog entries. I wondered if you might have some resources that you would be willing to share or if you could point to some that might be useful.

"Scaffolding the blogging process and evaluating blog entries" sounded like a great discussion to for Teachers Teaching Teachers, so we invited Michelle and her colleagues to join us toward the end of July.

In addition to these questions, we also asked about anything that these teachers are learning together in the Dakota Writing Project Sandbox, which is described on their web site http://sites.usd.edu/dwp/sandbox :

Taking a 21st-century approach, the Dakota Writing Project Digital Writing Marathon provides educators with a thoughtful, intensive, collaborative exploration of a variety of technology environments and strategies for integrating writing and adapting these technologies appropriately for the classroom. The marathon is offered entirely online, with both synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous communication and activities, with the majority of online work occurring in July 2013, January 2014, and May 2014. The marathon is taught by Dakota Writing Project teacher-consultants with extensive experience in integrating writing and technology for the classroom.

It was a lot of fun to meet and speak with these wonderful educators:

TTT#358 #clmooc Imaging Futures w/ Christina Cantrill, Karen Fasimpaur, Fred Mindlin, Terry Elliott, Mia Zamora, Sheri Edwards


64:58 minutes (44.61 MB)

On this episode of TTT (recorded 7.24.13), we invite you to join some of the instigators and nurturers of this summer's #clmooc (A Massive Open Online Collaboration about Connected Learning). Listen as these inspiring educators envision future communitites of learning together.

Making Learning Connected http://blog.nwp.org/clmooc/ #clmooc was a massive open online collaboration -- it was a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience focused on making and connected learning. In #clmooc, participants designed and engaged in "makes" -- creative projects -- that tapped into participants’ personal (and professional) interests.

In this episode of TTT, we talk with several participants and facilitators of #clmooc about their experiences and how they envision taking what they have learned forward to apply it in other contexts.
