    5. 5. Session Question:What is a MOOC, how is it created and how is itrelevant to K12 education? Retrieved from: http://gbl55.wordpress.com/2011/03/08
    6. 6. Rather than thinking of public educationas a burden that schools must shoulder on their own, what would it mean to think of public education as a responsibility of a more distributed network of people and institutions...
    7. 7. ....what would it mean to enlist help in this endeavour from an engaged and diverse set of publics that are broader than what we traditionally think of aseducational and civic institutions? In addition to publics that are dominated by adult interests, these publics should include those that are relevant and accessible to kids now, where they can find role models, recognition, friends, and collaborators who are co participants in the journey of growing up in a digital age. Mimi Ito, 2010
    8. 8. Why and How to make a K-12 MOOCMassive Open Online Course
    9. 9. What Ignited the idea...Professionally:• I am the CEO- Chief Education Officer for www.GlobalEd.ca• Completed pilot "Online ESL Blended Program" using moodle• Looking for the most cutting edge Blended Learning options for 2013

    12. 12. Has your inner voice ever told you to do something? You knew it wasnt "wrong" but you knew you might be alone with your idea? You knew that you be facing a challenge and the Road Less Travelled....Question #1Did you listen to your inner voice or did you ignoreit?
    13. 13. My inner voice kept saying...I need to find a way bridge technology and learning outside the classroom walls. MOOCs seem like"cutting edge" online learning The website said register here: So.....I joined a MOOC.
    14. 14. #change11 MOOC - Massive Open Online Course Alec Couros led week 29 - Understanding Digital Citizenship
    15. 15. My Perceptions of a MOOC... As I listened and participated in Alecs session - I wondered how come I had never experienced this kind of "online" learning before? How could I apply it to k- 12 audience? Is there a k-12 MOOC? What does it look like? Would others want to help me create a MOOC for k-12?
    16. 16. Major Differences in MOOC and regular Online Courses• Everyone was there to learn together (no hierarchy)• Weekly Synchronous Meeting Times• Teachers gave contact information• Teachers encouraged you to connect with them• "Nodes" (Digital Learning areas) to interact and connect with others• Flipped Learning• Content given in Digital Format• Choice of Activities• Activities presented in open forum for feedback• No formal assessment• All activities presented using social media
    17. 17. What I felt was missing in a MOOC based on MY expectations• As the course progressed, I learned that not every lead facilitator was like Alec Couros - he is unique• I started the course late and full of enthusiasm...and felt alone• I was expected to figure out how to connect, network, create a blog, link my RSS feed and use twitter before I could complete activities.....all by myself!• I felt excluded from the "community" and did not know how to connect with like minded people....for support
    18. 18. What I did not get out of the course and I wanted....• I wanted to create a course like #change11, that could teach others how to use social media and discover their digital footprints - giving everyone time, scaffolded support and that created an encouraging digital learning environment for all.• I wanted to take the Higher Education MOOC and put a K-12 stamp on it.
    19. 19. Question #4 When you create a new project for a course, do you learn as much (or more) than your students?
    20. 20. Why #DigiFoot12? - Everyone learnsAs a parent, I wanted to look for topics that I would want my childs teacher to cover in some way during the school year. I chose general topics hoping that my childrens teachers would hear about the course and be able to start somewhere.
    21. 21. Why #DigiFoot12 I want to be a learner too!As an educator... I knew that I wanted open content resources so that anyone anywhere would have access- anytime. I wanted something to be collaborative where people could find and link to "what they have learned"
    22. 22. Topics "everyone" could learn from...The topics were:Week 1 - What is/Building a PLNWeek 2 - Twitter (Social Networking)Week 3 - Digital CitizenshipWeek 4 - Researching OnlineWeek 5 - Students as EducatorsWeek 6 - CyberbullyingWeek 7 - Badge Presentation

    41. 41. Learning is a network... Part of a system......“an interconnected set of elements that is coherently organized in a way that achieves something.”... “more than a sum of its parts. It may exhibit adaptive, dynamic, goal-seeking, self- preserving, and evolutionary behavior.”Meadows - Based on Business Innovation
    42. 42. Verenas Learning....#1• I wanted to work on making all #digifoot participants feel "included"When I spoke to Alec Couros he reminded me to always make a daily email that includes examples of student work - we all like to be the examples
    43. 43. Verenas Learning #2• How to connect all participants new to "open learning"? Participants were beginners to advanced - I needed to scaffold options for new learners while challenging my advanced learners. MOOCs naturally offer personalized learning optionsParticipant mentors were asked to volunteer to MODEL, to write comments anytime they saw something unanswered, to help me moderate Blackboard sessions, Twitter, Netvibes, Google.docs and various other tools. I encouraged others to lead in order to help make the course sustainable for me.
    44. 44. Verenas Learning #3Student questions and teacher feedback seemed "amplified" in an open online forumI learned to accept that failure was possible, learn from my mistakes and do my best.Being authentic got me through
    45. 45. How MOOCs "could be used in k-12An online Module or Course (Students, Teachers, Admin, Districts, Govt)• Using an open or closed wiki, you could use the MOOC model to create an online course or module of your own based on this PPT presentation
    46. 46. As a professional development option• MOOCs can be offered on any topic and can be a "course" or way to connect and learn.• Pick one topic - then pick various subtopics for your "experts" to focus on.• You dont have to ask others to be "experts" you could be the lead facilitator the whole way through....However, asking others to "lead" a week based on their "strength" is a great way to connect and network.• You can choose to keep the course within a school, district or consider opening your "course" to others.
    47. 47. How to design a MOOC1. Who is your audience or what are your creating the MOOC for?
    48. 48. 2. Create a wikispaces homepage• Set up a pages about: o Course Information (Course objectives,how to register, how it is run...) o FAQ or Help and Support o Privacy Issues o Resources o How to "Track" RSS Feeds, Blogs and Twitter Tweets
    49. 49. 3. Weekly synchronous Guest Facilitators• Start looking for "experts" in the topics you would like to cover• Have a template for them to follow
    50. 50. 4. Schedule• Start setting up a schedule ensuring F2F recorded sessions • Ask facilitators to create weekly activities
    51. 51. 5. Design Opening Week• Be the facilitator for the first session in order to create a template and to start the first page
    52. 52. 6. Start Connecting/Planning the Social Media• Set up a Google RSS Feed page, Netvibes page and Twitter tracking page with hashtag

    58. 58. What will you end with?Collection of Resources• You will have a collection of resources based on a collaborative effort• You will have developed leadership skills among your peers and ensured that everyone is identified by their strengths• You will have created the foundations for autonomous learning for all participants which will offer them the opportunities outside of the school and/or district You will have taken away the idea that Professional Development is GIVEN, and instead proven that Professional Development is CREATED
