Curious about MOOC’s? These massive open online courses are created to allow participants to work at their own pace and also embed all types of collaboration and communication among the participants. This fall, Wilkes University will be offering a MOOC for K-12 and pre-service educators entitled “Teachers + Web 2.0 = Creative Classrooms”. The focus of this MOOC will be to explore the use of various Web 2.0 tools in different subject areas and support the Common Core State Standards at the same time. An upcoming MOOC is also being developed with the same structure, but intended for the use of mobile technologies.
The “conversation with Kathy Schrock” on September 16 will feature the developer and facilitator of the upcoming Web 2.0 MOOC, Barbara Moran, the Director of eLearning at Wilkes University. Come learn more about this cool new way of teaching and learning!
