As the semester winds down, I get time to focus a little on my OWN learning, or as they say, "get my learn on" – I wasn’t born this smart, ya know! People always want to know how I know all this stuff. One of my best resources for “what’s going on” when it comes to technology and education is Classroom 2.0. I know many of you have heard me talk about this social networking group. The folks here are a huge part of my learning community. Because I am such a sharerer, I wanted to tell you a little more about what goes one here.
Classroom 2.0 is a social network for those interested in collaborative technologies in education. One of my favorite parts is the Classroom 2.0 LIVE. These are real-time online classes offered in Elluminate (easy for beginners – they have directions). The workshops are about an hour long and full of great resources and relevant information. If you can’t attend the real-time class, you can go to the archives, which is where I usually end up. Hey, it’s asynchronous learning at its best!
Here’s a sample of what has gone on:
I encourage you to poke around. There is one today on open content in education. I will be hitting the archives next week to hear that one.
If you are already a member of Classroom 2.0 or sign up in the future, add me as a friend!! Hopefully you can find me . . .Lee Anne Morris or lamorris.
BTW – The Eighth Floor summer schedule will be available very soon. Enrollment begins Monday, May 4th, 2009. We have some exciting new programs this summer. Keep checking the website!
