21st Century Learning #98
Designing an Open Online Teacher Academy  -- Part 2
March 19, 2009

Week 2 of figuring out how to design an online teacher academy. 

We're starting to nail down a goal for this academy: 

The goal of this experience is to:
1. Teach online tools in the context of teaching and learning
2. Creating online community to model and sustain this learning

 *Please not that these are in draft form.

This online teacher academy starts by walking its participants through some basic online tools while building a community, and creates a structure for the participants to create and document new work thus leaving a legacy for the next generation of learners. 

With these goals and constructs, where do you see this going?  Leave us a comment here or over at the isenet.ning.com/forum/topics/call-for-a-conversation-onlineISENet ning.
