I am in the middle of teaching three online courses, taking George Siemen’s Introduction:Emerging Technologies -Africa open course for my Open PhD studies, making tons of Twitter connections with fellow like-mined educators, and staying in a 5th wheel trailer for two weeks on my sister’s property in Eastern Washington state while I visit my relatives on this side of the country. What’s a girl to do in her spare time?
Write up a post about a teaching resource for using digital media and social networking to promote critical thinking in the on or off line classroom, of course.
I’ve had the article rolling around in my head for a while now. I posted it to my other blog site that I use for sharing resources and reflections with other online educators. You can find that post here. Nothing really new in my doing that.
The “aha!” moment came when I realized what was significant about this practice. I’ve been intentionally creating and posting educational resources to be shared…openly…freely…use them at your own discretion.
I’ve been a part of this movement for sometime now, and I didn’t even know it?
