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.
Develop online instructional materials that are engaging and effective in this course for K-12 educators
Online and blended classrooms are a fast-growing trend in K-12 education and provide some unique opportunities for engaged learning. If you are teaching online or in a blended classroom or going to doing so soon, this is the course for you.
In this course, you will work on creating your own online learning environment in the tool of your choice. Be prepared to do some hands-on course building and to be both a learner and a teacher as a part of this course community.
posted message: Just a reminder that we have a webinar at 2:00 pm Pacific today (in about 2 hours) to talk about online professional development for teachers. Hope you all can be there. We have some great questions to ponder and discuss.
posted message: PLEASE NOTE: Your project for this course can be as big or small as you like. It doesn't have to be a whole course or webinar. It can be something as small as an assessment activity or a set of rubrics. Do whatever works for you, and choose something manageable given the timeframe and your other commitments. :)
posted message: Hello- sorry, but I am not sure what we are supposed to be doing. I am not sure where anything is or what I am to share. Seems like lots of projects all over but where do I find them? I see them on the google doc but where on this site? Sorry- I am VERY experienced at online teaching and learning but find myself spending all my time looking where I am to be and not completing anything. Directions please!
posted message: I am about to start on a project with "CMC" (http://www.cmc-china.org/) which has a number of schools and centers around the country. Pg 21 on this doc could also be helpful (http://matthewramcharan.posterous.com/pages/projects).
Based on the conditions of a CMC student with poor English skills I need to build an education plan to improve students English and then get them at least through core high school subjects using only online tools. Every student has a computer and an internet connection available with an unlimited time to learn. Constraints are 1) needs to be low cost 2) have a teaching facilitator but all learning should be online.
Question: If personal teacher interaction is over Skype is that considered blended learning?

Participants, followers, and anyone else is welcome! Stay tuned for more info.

I'll let everyone know the time for the first one tomorrow. Thanks!
posted message: A note about getting around this course...if you haven't figured it out, the main pages of each P2PU course are the "Tasks," which are listed above as well as down the left side of the page. You can comment on each of these, as well as being able to edit most of them to add more information. This should all be explained in "Wk 1-Getting started," but let me know if you have questions.
We officially start Monday!
