Teaching Carnival 4.8
, Computers, Language, Writing, Apr 01, 2011
Carnie barker ProfHacker at The Chronicle welcomes you to Teaching Carnival 4.8. I've seen other blog carnivals, including more than a few teaching ones, mostly subject and K-12, but somehow missed this one. Fits right in with writing/blogging about teaching, computers, languages, writing, MOOC, multileracies and big or little c connectivism. How connectivated can it get?

First Impressions
Vanessa, Computers, Language, Writing, Jan 26, 2011
Week 1 impressions are primarily about evomlit11 (Multiliteracies) and LAK11 (Learning and Knowledge Analytics) and only peripherally to CCK11 (Connectivism and Connective Knowledge), which starts today as I am reminded by an email notice from that other MOOC. I registered there early and did some early prep. We'll see whether/ how much that helps chaos management (an oxymoron if there ever was one). Evomlit11, Vance Steven's 6 week EVO (Electronic Village Online) workshop, ... 2011-01-18T01:22:00 [Comment]
