Sometimes it’s not easy to just listen. You have this driving urge to share your opinion. Try listening patiently and then politely asking, “Would you like to hear my thoughts?” If not, then respect that this child or adult trustingly came to you to vent. Respect, comfort and support them. Be that special heart that just listens.

New case study tells us:

"As Groom puts it, "I think one of the things that got lost in some of the public conversations about MOOCs is the importance of having people there who could encourage individual students and connect them with others, who could facilitate the growth of a community that helps people focus. Instead of automated graders, there were instructors who were participating and learning along with the students. The students educated the instructors about the significance of Harry Potter, Twilight, My Little Pony and other pop culture phenomena that other academics might have considered trivial, but which DS106 students highlighted and interrogated as clues to the nature of web culture." In DS106 and in the courses I've convened online, the glue that holds together the students, the texts, and the discussions is the enthusiastic sharing of individual learning – instead of absorbing and sequestering the knowledge one gains from participation, each participant becomes a kind of instructor to others, including the instructors."

It struck me that the case study was focussed on UMW runs of the course but did not explore the Headless 13 or the new idea to make DS106 'open all hours' this year.  Although the conclusion of the article written by +Howard Rheingold does allude to the next steps we have taken as a learning community. 

I also think that there is a danger in emphasising the technology and the wizard technical skills of +Martha Burtis and/or +Alan Levine . This may distract from something else they really do that is unique: Engage in a human and genuine way with participants and the stuff they create. What Alan often refers to as instructors online needing to understand the human need 'to be seen' in their work.

See what you think when you read it.
Digital Storytelling 106--better known as "ds106"--sprouted in 2010 as a computer science class on digital storytelling at University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Founded by Jim Groom, educational technology consultant Alan Levine, and instructional technologists Martha Burtis & Tom Woodard, ds106 has evolved into a model for all instructors and students who aspire to experience, explore, and extend connected learning.
