  • Trudi <br /> Thrilled to be doing a collaborative keynote, embodies our work, thank you for inviting us <br /> Hope you will be as excited <br /> Remind you about Twitter <br /> <br />

  • VizMath (Math MOOC) fall 2012 <br /> <br />
  • The topic did not draw the audience we had hoped and those that did participate were not as active as we would have hoped <br /> <br />
  • Tom <br /> This is our visual model to explain Metaliteracy (pause) <br /> We see this as a flexible, circular model that builds on information literacy with new technologies and competencies (pause) <br /> Metaliteracy expands information literacy to include the ability to produce, share, and collaborate in open learning and social media environments (pause) <br /> Metaliteracy also includes a central focus on metacognition, or the ability to think about one’s thinking. <br /> Today’s learner moves through these spheres from any direction rather than a traditional linear manner <br /> <br />

Designing a Connectivist Metaliteracy MOOC to Promote Collaborative Learning Designing a Connectivist Metaliteracy MOOC to Promote Collaborative Learning Presentation Transcript

  • 1 Tom Mackey, Ph.D. Dean, Empire State College #metaliteracy UPCEA Mid-Atlantic 2013 Regional Conference Strategic Approaches to Using MOOCs October 9, 2013 10:30-11:45 am “Designing a Connectivist to Promote Collaborative Learning” MOOC
  • “The starting point of connectivism is the individual. Personal knowledge is comprised of a network, which feeds into organizations and institutions, which in turn feed back into the network, and then continue to provide learning to individual. This cycle of knowledge development (personal to network to organization) allows learners to remain current in their field through the connections they have formed.” George Siemens Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm
  • “In a connectivist MOOC, people get out of it what they put into it,” said Stephen Downes of the National Research Council of Canada, a pioneer of the early MOOCs. “It’s something like a Yahoo group or other interest-based community. But it has a start date and an end date, and it pulls people out of different networks and plops them into a new one, which results in new connections and gets people hearing new voices.” "Online Mentors to Guide Women Into the Sciences” TAMAR LEWIN September 16, 2012
