Seaching For Our Town in Web 2.0?: Skitch Analysis

Posted by dennisar on September 22, 2009

Skitch Analysis: I used Skitch to prepare a personal Keynote analysis of Richard Schwier’s Searching for Our Town in Web 2.0 Keynote that he presented at the UBC Okanagan Learning Conference, May 8, 2008. I did this to prepare for an Elluminate session with the Dr. Schwier for Dr.Alec Couros’s Social Media and Open Education course, ECI 831, University of Regina, Saschatchawan, Canada. You can find the keynote at http://tr.im/zomO.

Teaching & Learning with Alec and Others

Posted by dennisar on September 7, 2009

Today is Labor Day, a national holiday on the first Monday in September in the United States. Teachers have either returned to school by now or they begin tomorrow. One hundred and eighty days in a classroom from now until the end of the year. I will be teaching teachers this year. Three classes of teachers in three different school districts in Massachusetts. The classes begin on September 24th, October 15th and January 6th, respectively. I titled the course The Three C’s of 21st Century Teaching and Learning.

Time permitting, I will be participating as a non-registered student in an online course lead by Dr. Alec Couros from Saskatchewan, Canada titled Social Media & Open Education: Open, Connected, Social, ECI831.

This is the main page for EC&I 831: Social Media & Open Education, an open access graduate course from the Faculty of Education, University of Regina. This course is available to both for-credit and not-for-credit students. It features openly available, live, and recorded presentations from notable educators & theorists. It is anticipated that the open nature of this course will benefit both the registered and non-registered students especially in the fostering and development of long-term, authentic, educational connections.

I’m looking forward to being a teacher and a learner this year.

For anyone unlucky enough not to be Canadian, here are some aids to help you prepare for the course.
