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.
A course to explore using free, open educational resources in K-12 classrooms
This course will explore how a variety of free, open educational resources (OERs) can be used in K-12 classrooms. In this course, you will research, remix, and use OERs suitable to your students' needs and also publish some of your own educational resources under an open license. Plan to come learn and teach as a part of this course community; open to U.S. K-12 educators.
posted message: Just a reminder that we'll be brainstorming the future of the P2PU school of ed here: http://bbb.k12opened.org/join.php?meetingID=P2PU%20School%20of%20Ed&password=gx7i0iru
in one hour (6:00pm EST). Hope you can join us even if it's for just a few minute to tell us what you think and what you'd like to see next year.
posted message: There may be a useful message to be found in this video from David White about online education and education in general. I never liked the ideas surrounding "digital natives" with the belief that kids just naturally "get" technology because it has been there in their environment since birth. The "visitors" and "residents" ideas seem to work better.
posted message: I learned a lot from this article about the whole picture of OER, the idea proposed at the end resonates well with this OER P2PU class. :)
The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning (by Downes)
posted message: For anyone interested in participating in an online seminar to work on a Moodle remix of some open-licensed math content (starting with fractions), we'll be starting here in December. Hope you can join us and/or use some of what we create!
