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!
