I recently received an invite from Doug Belshaw to join Mozilla’s Teach the Web MOOC. The open project is part of the #teachtheweb initiative and focuses on building the skills needed to teach digital literacies and web-making tools in the context of the community and classroom.
In reviewing the initial post by Kevin Hodgson…I also started to think about why I’m interested in joining this work. I’m curious about this work for a number of reasons:
- How can I more effectively utilize the power of the reader/writer Web?
- What role do open badges play in my teaching and learning activities?
- How do planning and scaffolding affect MOOC-type learning environments?
- What connections can I make within this community of learners to expand my own thinking?
I’m looking forward to getting started. Feel free to join in as well if you’re interested.
