Hey CLMOOCers ... consider jumping into the Walk My World endeavor -- making and connecting .... It has +Ian O'Byrne and +Greg Mcverry as guides and is low threshold/low stress ... sort of like CLMOOC .... see you on the Web!
Last year, I saw some friends of mine — Ian and Greg — launching a project called Walk My World. They were dipping into ways that new literacies could be used in connected ways, with connections to ongoing exploration and research they are doing on literacy, and so I hopped on board.

CLMOOC announcements  - 
 
+Karen Fasimpaur has a wonderful post at +Educator Innovator about the #CLMOOC  Make Bank. Oh, and by the way, if you haven't signed up yet to get the Ed Innovator newsletter or blog posts, you really should. Lots of great content and opportunities.
#CLMOOC, the Making Learning Connected MOOC, is going strong with lots of making going on! One of the features of this year's collaboration is the new and improved Make Bank. Participants of last year's MOOC may remember the make bank which was a place for people to find or post “make” projects ...

Wonderful post at Digital Is about Hack Your Notebook Day by Jillian VanRiper of the Red Cedar Writing Project in Michigan. The last few paragraphs made me tear up a little, I have to admit.
I started Hack Your Notebook day begrudgingly, wondering why we were allotting an entire day to decorating our notebooks when we had so much more work to do. What was I really going to learn from this activity? I looked at the piles of paper and beads and scissors and glue, and gave an inward ...

Can we change the world through conversations? Wed 1.14 @ 9pmET/6pmPT http://edtechtalk.com/ttt join @joshfeigelson from http://askbigquestions.org #NWP

+Josh Feigelson will be our guest on Teachers Teaching Teachers. 

In 2005, when he was Campus Rabbi at Northwestern University Hillel, Josh founded Ask Big Questions along with students Allie Gross and Lexie Komisar. In 2011, Ask Big Questions became a national initiative of Hillel, and Josh became its Educational Director. Since that time, he has guided the development of our educational theory, approach to training, and design of educational resources.

Join us at 9PM ET/6PM PT at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt. Learn more about Ask Big Questions http://askbigquestions.org.

Recently, we added a new feature to Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net/askbigquestions, which can be accessed from the "Questions" tab at Youth Voices. We are planning to follow their monthly questions with rich and relevant blended (both asynchronous and face-to-face) experiences for the youths in our middle and high school classrooms.  

Specifically, we are using NowComment to engage students around texts, then we will invite them to scheduled Hangouts to talk about big questions, following the guidelines that Ask Big Questions provides. We started doing some of this last year http://youthvoices.net/live and we are looking these resources to help us make these online conversations even more meaningful.

This is what we will be talking this Wednesday on Teachers Teaching Teachers: how to introduce Ask Big Questions into our secondary school classrooms, how to use Youth Voices and NowComment, and how to arrange Hangouts to have conversations across schools.

Please plan to join us at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET/6PM PT on Wednesday, January 14.

Wonderful post at Digital Is about Hack Your Notebook Day by Jillian VanRiper, a teacher in Michigan with the Red Cedar Writing Project. The beauty of the last few paragraphs made me tear up a little bit, I'm not too proud to admit.
