#OSSEMOOC: March 24, 2014

Welcome to another week of sharing and connecting through #OSSEMOOC!

This week our theme is The Future of Learning and Teaching.

If we consider the Student Voice in this image created by MSAC in 2013, does our current practice align?

What will teaching and learning look like five years from now?

What tools will students need to learn and to demonstrate their learning in the future?

We have two challenges for you this week.

First, as you become a connected learner, set aside 15 minutes every day to connect to an educator outside of your school and board.  For example,  click on a link to a blog written by an Ontario School/System Leader and/or by one of the educators currently learning through OSSEMOOC.  What are they learning?  How are they sharing their learning?  What do you think?  Perhaps give them some feedback on their thinking through the comments.  All bloggers love to hear from their readers!  It’s so encouraging!

Then, think about your own learning.  What did you learn today?  Can you share your learning in 500 words or less?  Next week OSSEMOOC is starting a collective blog where educators can share their learning.  Please think about your own learning today.  What can you share with others?  It is only through sharing and making our thinking visible that we can learn from each other.

More information on how to submit your learning will follow.

Events for this week:

Monday, March 24: Be sure to check out the MSAC graphic (above), and think about how your own ideas for the future of learning align with those the students presented to the Minister of Education last year.
