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.
