So glad we had that skype conversation about moocs now. Seems so long ago. Who knew what an adventure it would be, especially for you.

I noticed some fellows students promoting their survey on Twitter. Seems like a good idea so please complete it if you have a moment: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1QXSs3HPDGjbUKClDxskXQVNDeLjb4N5ouVogpb0Aygo/viewform

I wish I'd seen this post 10 months ago. It would have made it much easier to understand what the course means by metaphors. This a great post Sandra. Very clear and easy to understand.  Brilliant.

Did any of you notice this from Google this week. It could have a real impact if it takes off e.g. MOOC tutoring services

For authors it could mean a new income stream if readers wanted to discuss the content face to face. So many possibilities.

I was just thinking that the level you have aimed for, while a bit low for me, might be ideal for a workshop.

I was wondering yesterday if this course had attracted anyone to engage in social media/networks who had not done so previously, or if it was the case that people were using the opportunity to widen their use.  Either is good but ideally it would be for people not engaging at all..

I think it must be hard to grab people who only use the internet for access to things like email and Google search.  For them, it might be better to run face-to-face events.  This is why I think taster workshops at PD events and conferences might be a good idea. Of course, it takes time and money, but you would attract a different type of person who may need that confidence and push that those courses provide, and it would create that connection that some need to participate digitally.

Anyway, just a thought.

Hello, just read your post and joined the group as a result. I am quite embarrassed that I am so keen, being only the second to join :)

I have been playing about with other Google products recently. I've created a Google form and last week I tried embedding a Google Drive document in my blog. All pretty straightforward although formatting needs some work.  The form has been especially good for helping me develop my A-Z list of webtools http://imaturestudent.wordpress.com/a-z-of-web-2-0-tools/

I've been tasked with creating a guide for 11-16 year-olds on digital literacy.  I don't want to reinvent the wheel so if anyone knows of any good, existing guides please share.  If they are creative commons, all the better.

Alternatively, if you know of anything particular informative/cool/useful like a Prezi, video whatever... that will help me understand what students of that age need to know then I'd greatly appreciate it :)
