Karen Fasimpaur wraps up the night reflecting on allowing students to share. Students should be the one to decide if they should share. Ther should be a button. She argues that we are taking away a fundamental right.
Seeing a lot of potential for connecting pre-service teachers and YouthVoices.
Learning more about YouthVoices (YouthVoices.net). I am always blown away from this. I wish I would have used this rather than Soundcloud.
Paul draws an interesting comparison to parallel play and students posting online. I am struck by this idea. I am always building the space but may not always get the connections that I want.
Karen, Peggy, and Sherri debating the “open” nature of Google in the chat room. Sheri Edwards: Our students love Google Apps. So easy.
21:42 Peggy George: google apps are much more open than Moodle
21:42 karen (@kfasimpaur): not from every standpoint
21:42 Peggy George: you can’t take your Moodle documents/portfolios with you once you leave the institution
21:43 karen (@kfasimpaur): yes, you can…not easy, but you can
21:43 karen (@kfasimpaur): Also, google can do whatever they want with your stuff tomorrow…not the case with moodle
21:43 Peggy George: it isn’t easy
21:43 karen (@kfasimpaur): true
21:43 karen (@kfasimpaur): But “we” as a community could alter Moodle code to make this easy
21:43 karen (@kfasimpaur): not the case with Google
21:44 Peggy George: but schools choose it because it can be controlled
21:44 karen (@kfasimpaur): CONTROL – key point
Johanna Paraiso talking about how she builds a great classroom website. The minute she put it out there teachers were asking how did, “you that.” Teachers wanted an example. We wanted it simple.
Joann Boettcher discussing how a school wide LMS has invigorated the sharing of curriculum in the classroom. They use schoolology. Teachers have been sharing and remixing their lessons and ideas.
Discussing how great it would be to share student work on Mentor texts. I am always so inspired by Youth Voices.
Christina Cantrill sharing on the history of NWP’s Digital Is. Said it was built on the practices that already existed in a community of writers. She comments that it is built as a place for an inquiry.
The classroom teachers are all stating that the CCSS is a rallying cry that is leading to self organizing communities. I do not belive the CCSS require huge shift in instruction but rather recognizing what we have long known to be better practices. If the CCSS is leading to teachers organizng around shared outcomes and integration of tech that it is a wonderful byproduct.
A great thought from the chatroom: http://edtechtalk.com/ttt karen (@kfasimpaur): Funny…”open curriculum” (open licensed) can be open or closed in the broader sense
Having a description of curriculum,? What is it and who is it? Does it have to be mandated.
Paul responds to Monika that even though we are public and standing on giants we should give credit.
I tend to agree. I like the Creative Commons approach.
Monika Hardy: sharing a story about experimenting with the city being the curriculum? Then what is public in public education? By definition there is no ownership in public? There is no way I am just me ever? We spend our days drawing lines, then defending the lines we draw.
From the chatroom:
Peggy George: I thought I recognized the water tower 🙂 grew up near one of those in MT (also rural)
21:11 Peggy George: integrated day/open education were tied together for me at that time.
21:12 Peggy George: many districts say that if the work was done with school materials/equipment on school time it belongs to the district
21:13 chadsansing: I wonder about making “school” a more open platform. How do you get a school borad behind open resources when systems are not particularly open organisms? Lots of ways, I’m sure, to find –
Sheri Edwards sharing stories of districts who want to try to own teacher created work. Comments that people should share.
A great panel
I was just discussing that I believe that school districts should have all of their curriculum be open. They shouldn’t “own” the work.
I am excited to serve on as a panelist talking about open educational resources. Some of the biggest advocates of open education: http://edtechtalk.com/ttt
