I put together a video overview in which I talk through some of the elements of the Online Research and Media Skills (ORMS) Mentored Open, Online Community (MOOC).
The ORMS MOOC examines opportunities for the use of instructional technologies in an educational context. We’ll not only discuss what to use in your classroom…but also how to use it. My thinking is that if you can say that you’ve embedded all three cornerstones of the ORMS model (online collaborative inquiry, online reading comprehension, online content construction) in your classroom…I think you’ve authentically, effectively embedded instructional technologies.
The video below shares all of the information I have been sharing over these threads. This video is meant to act as a supplement for participants that don’t learn simply by reading my long, boring blog posts. 🙂
You can learn more about the MOOC here…and access the actual MOOC here. Enjoy.
