About the Conectivism course...
- My dear Webheads... a warm hug to all of you out there!
Maybe you already know about the Connectivism Course
<http://www.elearnspace.org/connectivism.html> offered by George
Siemens and Stephen Downes... right? Well, it happens that this course
is going to happen in English. I think this is going to be a way to
experiment connected knowledge live... you will learn by doing and using
all the tools and connecting to all you have to connect to experience
what connected knowledge learning is about in ..... English.
My new friend Esperanza Roman who is a professor from Spain wrote a
post in her blog called " ¿Se descrimina el conocimiento por razones
por.html> , addresing the fact that the command of a specif language
is going to determine your access to the newest, most innovative and
fastest changing knowledge in the world. I think she is right.... She
thought that we could change that by creating a Spanish Speakers Group
<http://www.pageflakes.com/connectivitas/23618668> to follow what it
is going to happen in Siemens and Downes course. They will be discussing
and sharing their findings as well reflecting on how connected knowledge
affects our Spanish speaker culture, society or schools.
Now, I thought ... this is a great opportunity for teachers in my
university , too! They don't speak English but they can connect with
other Spanish Speakers and get the best of the course, too. And later I
thought.... my dear webheads could be interested, too. They are from
different countries and speak different languages... they could invite
other teachers that don't speak English to join them in their own
languages.... Wow! Think of the possibility.... different little groups
in different places of the world... all teachers connected...
Well, what do you think... would you like to jump in this adventure...
follow examples and you will get there... if you don't make it... well,
at least you tried and I am sure you will learn a lot from the
experience.... This is what I learned WEBHEADS are about....daring,
collaborating, F.U.N people.
Let me know if you want to join our Spanish group or if you know anybody
