Join us on this episode of TTT for a conversation about curriculum building and sharing using the new (beta) Gooru: Search Engine for Learning http://www.goorulearning.org/
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:
How can we use Gooru along with other tools like Crocodoc, Popcorn Maker, or Vialogues to not only collect resources, but make them interactive at the same time? (Can you help us add to this list of interactive tools?)
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
Jim Gee joins this episode of TTT, discussing his book, The Anti-Education Era: Creating Smarter Students through Digital Learning. On this episode, we continue the conversation we started on TTT#350 http://edtechtalk.com/node/5197. Enjoy!
Enjoy this episode of TTT, even if you've just started the book! It might give you some insights as you read. Gee will be joining us on TTT on Wednesday, June 5th. If you would like to join us in the Hangout-on-Air, please let us know.
Organizers from IDEA democraticeducation.org and IDEC idec2013.org join us on this episode of TTT. This is the first of a series of ongoing conversations. Join us for Part 2 of Planning for IDEC on Wednesday, May 8 at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
On this episode, we share/converse/think aloud about the IDEC conference coming up on August 4-8 at Colorado University, Boulder.
IDEC, now in its 21st year, is hosted by teams of educators from different countries and continents. This is the first time in ten years that it has been held in the U.S. Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice.
It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. There are thousands of people and organizations around the globe engaged in democratic education. IDEC 2013 is for all of them.
