Discussion  - 
 
Many pre-service teacher education programs at colleges and universities include at least one course focused on technology integration. In this presentation, a panel of current professors and instructors teaching preservice teacher educational technology courses discuss the challenges they face in reinventing the syllabi, projects, and topics used in these classes.

Many of us use a lot of different social media platforms. For CLMOOC, we've opted to have lots of options, which can be liberating or overwhelming (or both).

Whatever you use, choose the platform(s) that make sense to you, and don't feel that you need to be everywhere! :)

Here's a poll we did about this on FB, and one for here.

Looking for little steps into #clmooc  this year? Try the Daily Connects.
 
Today's #dailyconnect is all about thinking of your own "edges" and sharing out your experience. (Daily Connects are daily ideas you can try your hand at or just feel free to ignore). This one was inspired by Howard Rheingold and features a bonus Yes video. So, there's that.
Earlier in a Connected Learning experience, Howard Rheingold shared these words that resonated with a lot of people (and it has been retweeted often). For today’s Daily Connect, explore Howar…

Chris will be talking with Warren from Ireland with students in his MSU EdTech class http://edutech.educ.msu.edu/programs/masters/overseas/ who have read the book A More Beautiful Question

From Wikipedia:
Berger’s current project, A MORE BEAUTIFUL QUESTION: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas, (Bloomsbury), is an examination of the ways deep questioning can lead to innovation and change, and how we can get better at doing it in both business and daily life. For the 250-page book, Berger interviewed leaders at dozens of companies such as Google, Netflix, IDEO, and airbnb, as well as hundreds of entrepreneurs, educators, artists, social activists, and basement tinkerers about the role of questioning in their successes... Berger’s website http://AMoreBeautifulQuestion.com features hundreds of articles, videos, studies, and links about the powerful role of questioning in business, education, and daily life. Berger also speaks on the topics of innovation and questioning at businesses and conferences around the world.

Join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers for this special episode at 9AM Eastern/6AM Pacific/2PM Irish Standard Time on Wednesday, July 13 at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt
