A couple of weeks ago, I started the K12 Learning 2.0 online course.
The goal of the course is to help everyone become familiar with some of the exciting, emerging Web technologies available to support professional, personal and classroom learning in the 21st Century! The course is, intentionally, about play and possibility, rather than pedagogy; about exploration, rather than classroom application; about discovery and experimentation, rather than “doing it right.” We hope participants make connections and become inspired along the way. Learning is messy, and “mistakes” often lead to new understandings!
After completing the course, I’m hoping to convince others at my school to enrol and then I can act as their local coach. I think this will be a great way to use a successful, already-existing solution in order to introduce my colleagues to the Wonder World of Web 2.0.
