#DCMOOC

A few weeks ago I got an email at work inviting me to participate in a MOOC (watch THIS short video to see what one is). At the time I had no idea what a MOOC was, but it was titled "Digital Citizenship" which intrigued me. I also had no idea what digital citizenship meant, but I love technology and although I am not always directly on top of new trends, I am usually only a step or two behind. Deena keeps me in the loop with what's going on! I think technology in the classroom can be amazing, so I wanted to learn more about it. I registered. . . .

We had our first class this week. It was really cool. The class was presented by Dave Cormier and you log on to a website and he taught live to a group of over 100 people. We could see Mr. Cormier speak, he toured us around websites, and we also could comment . Mr. Cormier responded to those comments as he spoke (think old MSN messenger).

The #DCMOOC is free and you can still register. Go HERE to check it out. You can participate as little or as much as you like. As with anything, the more you put in the more you will get out, but if you just want to check it out, I encourage you to give it a go. This course would be great for educators, parents, or anyone interested in technology. I really feel it is an amazing opportunity. It's not too late to register. All of the sessions are accessible after they air, so if you have missed out, it is easy to catch up (just go to the content overview tab).

I am going to try to do my #DCMOOC writing in a different space. I will link it from here most days, but I thought it might be nice to keep my professional writing in a different place. Check THIS out to see my goals.

I would love to hear from you what it means to be a digital citizen. I'm still trying to figure it out for myself!

Happy Friday!
