Amy's Whimsical Musings
When I was hangin’ with Alec Couros (@courosa) this summer at BLC14 in Boston I was thrilled to hear about this “Connected Courses” MOOC with an all star cast (Michael Wesch, Helen Keegan, Mimi Ito, to name a few and …wait for it…the THREE MAGI : Alan Levine (@cogdog), Jim Goom (@jimgroom) , and Howard Rheingold (@hrheingold).
I’ve been dabbling for years, as a high school teacher, to not only develop a truly connected course (Howard interviewed me about that this year), but really want to know more of the nuts and bolts. I totally embrace the “control and manage your digital presence” ethos articulated so often by the #ds106 crew as well as the #showyourwork movement epitomized in #ds106 but made uber popular this year with the release of Austin Kleon’s book of the same title.
I really need and desire to know ore of the mechanics of crafting a really relevant, connected course and helping students become empowered to cultivate their digital presence. Right now I am particularly interested in Higher ED (even though I currently teach Juniors and Seniors in high school) and hope to get some good ideas for a keynote I’m doing in December.
In the meantime, I’ve watched the (very entertaining!!!) pre-show by “Click”, “Link”, and “Embed” (that still sounds naughty)…and did some sketches with my favourite app Paper by 53.
Finally, in the spirit of connectedness I shared these sketches on Twitter and tagged the boys …(attribution is paramount)…Was so flattered to see these tweets:
So of course I drew me, working on a pink caddy 🙂
I’m a busy girl but can’t wait for this course!!!
