Event Description

Happy New Year everyone!

If you are receiving this email, you’ve signed up for #etmooc. We’re set to start very soon so this message is meant to serve as a reminder and to help you get oriented to the upcoming events and activities. If you are receiving this message in error, we apologize, and want to let you know that there are unsubscription options found below.

As we develop #etmooc, we will continue to add information to the website found athttp://www.etmooc.org. Keep on eye on it, or subscribe via RSS. If you don’t know what that means, we’ll be covering RSS during orientation week so don’t worry.

We’ve outlined various things we’d like you to do in prepation for #etmooc under the Orientation page found at http://etmooc.org/orientation. This is an important read as the learning environment is a truly networked space, and can feel quite complex and overwhelming at times. #etmooc is intentionally designed to help you better understand these complexities as we collectively explore emerging topics in educational technology & media.

So, as we head into the kickoff for #etmooc, here’s a short list of things that you can be doing:

Read through, and prepare yourself for #etmooc using the http://etmooc.org/orientation page.
Begin to tweet using the #etmooc hashtag. Connect with and support others, share resources, and start discussing some of the upcoming topics (it’s never too early). Many of the #etmooc participants on twitter can be found through this curated list.
If you can make it, be sure to come to one of the ‘T0S1:Welcome & Orientation’ sessions planned in the Orientation Week of #etmooc (see: http://etmooc.org/calendar). These sessions will mark our official kick-off and will present a good opportunity to get to know each other, ask questions, provide input, or receive clarification about the weeks ahead.
If you know of others who would be interested in this opportunity, please do extend an invitation. There’s plenty of time to sign-up, and no limit on registration numbers. The more the merrier! You can point others to the Registration page at: http://etmooc.org/register.

On behalf of the organizers, I want to say that we are tremendously excited to begin this journey. We are doing our best to create an experience where #etmooc is not just a course, but a starting point for a vibrant, energetic, and passionate community that supports its members and advances the wise use and thorough understanding of technology & media in teaching & learning.

Sincerely,

Alec (@courosa)

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
