This is the personal site of Jeff Lebow. I am not a very active 'blogger', but do spend a lot of time online building Worldbridges communities, teaching at PUFS, and LearningCall. Currently, my 'bridge building' is focused on keeping Koreabridge chugging along and bringing EFLBridges back to life, but I also spend time webcasting at EdTechTalk, talking about webcasting at the Academy, MOOC'ing, and lately hanging out a lot with Google+. Most of my content will posted elsewhere in the Worldbridgosphere, but I will sometimes post significant webcasts and project updates here.
Howard Rheingold discusses his new book and topics related to "Net Smart: Introduction to fundamental social media literacies"
One important step that people can take is to become more adept at five essential literacies for a world of mobile, social, and always-on media: attention, crap detection, participation, collaboration, and network know-how. The effects of these literacies can both empower the individuals who master them and improve the quality of the digital culture commons.
Topics: Getting to know Tim, Where is the change in Change 11?, Interactivity in MOOC's, The Magic of DS106, Interactive Presentation options, How best to tune in to blog comments, the Canvas alternative, and plans for a Wowza date
Topics: Jen starts us off by examining issues brought out during Rory McGreal'sChange11 presentation about 'OER for Learning' and OERu Specifically, we contemplate the role of the teacher and/or learning institution when using Open Educational Resources and what about the 'missing piece' between open content and assessment? John relates this all to his current MOOC experience and his daughter's experience being virtually schooled. Jeff harasses Dave a bit about the lack of interaction during Change11's Friday reflection sessions and the boys stick around for a short post-show as Jen flees the scene. A good time was had by all.
