At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Teachers Open Online Learning for Professional Development
We will investigate the concept of 'The Networked Teacher' and find out more about 'Networked Literacy' in education. The course is based on 'Social Networking' and 'Open Education'. The participants will recieve 'Badges' as recognition for their achievements. Find out more on http://edutoolkit.wordpress.com
posted message: EduToolkit will be shaped into an NGO to achieve the mission (still under development) and some content will be mirroring the Change MOOC (http://change.mooc.ca/) similar to a study group or cluster of participants.
posted message: On Monday 23/1 we are entering the second week of the eduToolkit course at P2PU. There has been interest in where this initiative for 'Teachers Open Online Learning' originates from and who is behind it. eduToolkit started as an idea during my 'Eastern European' scholarship, with the aim to 'leapfrog' networked literacy in developing countries. The “Education Modernization Project" in Bulgaria was closed down due to lack of funding, but it was clear that in-service teachers still want to develop and keep abreast with new technology. I now encourage all participants and followers to declare your own ‘learning objectives’, then the Opportunities (2.1), Challenges (2.2) and Changed Practice (2.3) will become more clear.
posted message: Welcome to EduToolkit spring 2012! The first four weeks will focus on Orient - Declare - Network and Cluster - Focus. Every participant and follower are welcome to identify changes to the traditional way of teaching and new skills for professional development. There is no 'right way' to participate, my belief is that 'Activity = Outcome' and 'Action = Event'. Let me know how the course will create value for your!
