Teachers are Essential: Curating a Path Toward Responsibility

One of the best parts about learning in a community, is when you let the community affect your understanding. I let Phill Macoun and Darren Kuropatwa help my understanding of the role of the teacher in a MOOC and other connected learning environments. The result was to suggest that we allow 5 curators to create paths for us through ETMOOC. They could act as mentors and help us see what there is to see.

It's a Beautiful Day for an #ETMOOC

This is the unofficial theme song for #etmooc and Personal Learning Neighborhoods everywhere. Here are the lyrics, which are sung in unison by Gallit Zvi and Ben Wilkoff:

It’s a beautiful day for an #etmooc,
A beautiful day for some learning,
Would you connect?
Could you connect?

In my personal learning neighbourhood,
We blog, and we vlog and reflect what’s good
Would you comment?
Could you comment?

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
Always wanted to take this learning path along with you

So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
Let’s tweet and lets chat, in a backchannel way,
Would you move in?
Could you my friend?
Won’t you be my neighbor?

Won’t you post,
Won’t you link,
Please won’t you be my neighbor?
