  71. 71. What We Learned & Why It Matters to YOUR Courses• Open access, low-cost, high impact.• Courses become shared, non-local, learning events.• Students immersed in a greater learning community.• Rethinking of space/interaction (walled gardens, open spaces)• Learning spaces controlled and/or owned by students.• Development of emerging literacies, relevant for other courses.• Pedagogy focused more on connecting & interactions; content important, but secondary.• Development of sustainable, long-term, learning connections.
  72. 72. “I was able to go out and learn throughout the entire week, the entire year, and Iʼm still learning with everyone.” “The best part of the course is that itʼs not ending. With the connections weʼve built, it never has to end.”
  73. 73. “The course ... has been the most profound pdexperience Iʼve ever had. It forced me to critique & review my practice. I never knew how important social networks were. Now, I couldnʼt be a teacher without beingconnected. Itʼs drastically changed my view of education.”
