Like running, sometimes you need a little help to keep going.

May is the month to get this done! OSSEMOOC will scaffold the learning this month as you work through 30 days to get connected.

We will simplify the process into four 1-week steps:

1) May 4 to 8  Collect – Where do we go to find the information educators need?

2) May 11 to 15 Connect – How can I connect with other educators around the world?

3) May 19 to 22 Curate – How do I share great resources with my network?

4) May 25 to 29 Create – How do I make my learning and thinking visible? (Including a group project you won’t want to miss).

We will work through the four weeks in the supportive environment of a cohort of learners, complete with screencasted instructions, responsive learning, and incremental challenges to keep your learning moving forward!

So grab a colleague and make the leap to accessing the learning all over the world!

(Sign up is NOT required, but if you sign up (here), you will be on our mailing list for support and event notification in your email stream.)

Resources from Ron Canuel’s session

We are pleased to share the resources from our internet radio broadcast and twitter chat with Ron Canuel last night.

Download the podcast [here], and the twitter chat has been captured in Storify.   Keep the conversation going at  #ossemooc.

As a courtesy reminder there will not be an OSSEMOOC open mic session May 5th due to schedule complexities. We encourage you to extend your personal learning through other self directed approaches.

We look forward to you joining us on May 12 when Alan Levine @cogdog and Darren Kuropatwa @dkuropatwa share their collaborative work around digital storytelling.
