In education the tools we use for learning are many times limited to outdated textbooks, static courses and classrooms available at set times in a specific location. Our knowledge is merely seen as something we store and evaluate on merits or application in tests. This course will give you the ability to envision a new future based on the use of Web Tools in a Networked Learning scenario.
You will engage with instructional tools for creating, delivering and managing your learning resources in an innovative way. The final task will be to create a Screencast Tutorial that demonstrate your skills as a Networked Teacher. The experience from this course will turn into a multi-levelled badges program awarded from peer to peer evaluation.
Our first online course “Teachers Open Online Learning for Professional Development” [ #TOOL12] investigated what new skills and capacities teachers need to develop in 'Networked Literacy & Fluency'. We then shared some thoughts on some criteria for badges/certification as a ‘Networked Teacher’. This was a peer to peer course at P2PU and resulted in our community badges as well as our mission statement.
In this second online course “The Use of Web Tools in Networked Learning” [#CNT12] (16/4-4/5, 2012) we will show examples from WikiEducator using the eLearning XHTML editor (eXe). The aim is to support the participants to complete the challenge “Certified Networked Teacher” [CNT] and receive a skill badge that can be use within the open badges framework.
Next module will be “Syndicated Education in Distributed Cognition” and I the future we will develop the expert skills with “Central Node in Learning Networks”
