Hey All. We will have a face to face meeting this Wednesday-  Feb 26 from 6pm-7:30pm at the MIT Media Lab. Details from Philipp below:

"http://www.doodle.com/fbqvkwv3zwh2h7iu

If you still want to add your name to RSVP, please do so using the doodle. If you indicated availability but are NOT planning to come, please let me know (off list) so I can buy enough, but not too many, cookies. Wait, is there a thing as too many cookies?

Directions:

The building is on the corner of Ames and Amherst in Cambridge (Kendall T Stop). Take the elevator (or stairs) to the 4th floor and find room 445 (LEGO Lab). If you get lost, or the door is locked call me at 510 394 7195. 

Look forward to meeting everyone. "
Doodle radically simplifies the process of scheduling events, meetings, appointments, etc. Herding cats gets 2x faster with Doodle.

I'm thinking of postponing the face-to-face meeting on Wednesday based on the responses so far. If you're thinking of attending but have not yet RSVP'd, please let me know. Otherwise, we'll aim for another time and venue that works for more people.

Hi everyone. I realized that we never introduced ourselves. I think It'd be nice to know who everyone is and what we would hope to get out of the course and the group. Feel free to copy and paste from your introduction to the whole DLMOOC community.

I moved to Somerville this past July and work at Tufts' Center for Engineering Education and Outreach. My role involves partnering with schools on PBL, running an after-school program, and working on initiatives to promote and improve engineering education. Before this, I taught 10th grade humanities at High Tech High and English in  NYC public schools.

With this group, I hope to discuss Deeper Learning in a local context. I'd love to hear about teachers, schools, districts, and universities that are doing exciting things in the Boston Area. I'm also interested to hear what questions people have and what challenges they've faced.

Hi All. I work at Tufts University's Center for Engineering Education and Outreach- helping teachers and schools with PBL and engineering integration. Prior to that, I taught at High Tech High and in NYC public schools. It sounds like we have a fun group. Looking forward to connecting with you all.

I am an Educator in Residence at Tufts University's Center for Engineering Education and Outreach. My role involves working with K-12 schools on project-based engineering, running an after-school program, and consulting on our research and product-development projects. Prior to this gig, I worked as a 10th grade teacher at High Tech High in San Diego and was a teacher in NYC schools before that.

Hey All,

I'm going to take the lead on organizing Boston-area meet-ups for the DLMOOC. I've created a brief survey to see what might interest people. 

Feel free to post ideas, suggestions, etc.

Hi, everyone. I'm Dan Wise. I'm a former High Tech High teacher (10th Grade Humanities), and before that, I taught English in NYC public schools. I moved to Somerville, MA this past summer where I work as an "educator in residence" at Tufts University's Center for Engineering Education and Outreach. I'm looking forward to the MOOC and am interested in getting some Boston-area meet-ups together.
