Week06 - Wrap Up (19/2-24/2)
In this course we have been investigating the use of tools to perform our work in education, what capacities do we need to develop in 'Networked Learning' and finally some criteria for badges/certification as a ‘Networked Teacher’.
Evaluate how your participation (ACTIVITY) created value (OUTCOME) for your professional development. Maybe you have achived something (ACTION) and can use these skills in a new situation (EVENT).
Facititators note: The goal with this 'EduToolkit - Teachers Open Online Learning' course was innovation in the area of 'Teachers Open Online Learning' and during my personal investigation in 'Educators Use of Web Tools to Navigate Distributed Learning Environments' I realized that 'Networked Learning' has strong links to RSS syndicated education - developing a 'Learning Space or Community'. The experience from our course will turn into a multi-leveled badges program awarded from peer to peer evaluation. First "Certified Networked Teacher - Use of Web-tools" and followed by "Advanced Networked Teacher - Syndicated Education". Finally in the future there will be possible to "Expert Networked Teacher - Central Node in Learning". Hopefully these courses will be a part of 'P2PU School of Ed' and become offically endorsed by Mozilla Open Badges.
Formulated some feedback on how the the EduToolkit course was experienced by you. What can be improved?
Facilitators note: We ended up with 'soft' community badges and maybe 'hard' skill badges will create more value. My idea is that in "Certified Networked Teacher - Use of Web-tools" you should formulate practical skills and capacities for 'Networked Learning'. Then "Advanced Networked Teacher - Syndicated Education" will be the application of these tool in what could be described as a “syndicated” model. The expertice is demonstrated in "Expert Networked Teacher - Central Node in Learning"... Please join me as co-facilitators or give feedback!
