Hi everyone,
+Katia Hildebrandt and I are writing a paper on connectivist MOOCs as a vehicle for digital literacy development. We have seen amazing growth and development by many of you during and since #etmooc  and we are hoping to gather a few comments on your experiences. If you have a few minutes, we'd love to hear your feedback on these questions:

1) How has your participation in a MOOC ( #etmooc  or other) increased your digital literacy?

2) How has your participation in a MOOC ( #etmooc  or other) helped you to become a more active and informed digital citizen?

I had extensive experience in #edtech, but experience in the MOOC allowed me a deeper understanding of how interaction can inform learning--not only my own, but the learning of others.

The #etmooc  community rides again: next hour-long live Tweet chat:

Topic -- Failing to Learn: How Failure Contributes to Learning
Wednesday, October 28, 2015
9 pm ET/6 pm PT
Hashtag -- #etmooc  

For those who want a bit of pre-reading to prime the pump:
"Making Friends With Failure"
Ainissa Ramirez, Edutopia, August 26, 2013
http://www.edutopia.org/blog/learning-from-failure-ainissa-ramirez

Hope to see you there. Newcomers welcome, as always.
 
Science evangelist and Edutopia blogger Ainissa Ramirez suggests that we make friends with failure in the academic world - because for scientists, failure is just another word for data.

Well, dangit. I have been utterly swamped with emails lately, and in the need to focus on the ones that have to be answered right away, I have sometimes been letting others slide until too late (like the notification about this tweet chat). Grrrrr. I really need a better system of dealing with emails.

The latest reconvening of the #etmooc community--a tweet chat on the topic of hyperlinked learning--has been captured in a slightly-edited transcript produced with Storify. Plenty of wonderful moments here--and yes, you're going to have to skim the Storify document if you want to see what (and who) showed up.

Thanks to everyone--particularly chat co-host and cherished #etmooc  colleague Erin Luong--for making this another hour well-worth experiencing.

+Paul Signorelli I've really enjoyed reading your blog. Another writer I appreciate is +Brian Dowling who writes about systems and design thinking and collective impact, and uses visualization to help communicate his ideas. I encourage you to browse some of his articles, such as this: http://newcommunityparadigms.blogspot.com/2015/07/an-exploration-of-applying-business.html

"The cMOOC That Would Not Die" (http://cogdogblog.com/2015/05/the-cmooc-that-would-not-die/) is rising for another round of conversation, camaraderie, and learning: we're looking forward to catching up with current and new members of the #etmooc community during our next hour-long tweetchat, on the topic of "The #EdTech We & Our Learners Love," this Wednesday (4/13/16) at 9pm ET/6pm PT. We will, as usual, use the #etmooc hashtag. Rhonda Jessen and I will lightly facilitate the session. If you want to prime the pump, you can take a look at the infographic and executive summary at the beginning of the @NMCorg Horizion Report > 2016 Higher Education Edition (http://www.nmc.org/publication/nmc-horizon-report-2016-higher-education-edition/). And please don't forget that we're still very much working to honor our source of inspiration, Alec Couros, through donations to the newly-established Mario Couros Memorial Bursary: https://www.smore.com/8keea-mario-couros-memorial-bursary -- you can make a difference by donating at a level that is comfortable for you and helping to attract other donors to this wonderful #etmooc-based effort to support quality education.

Here is my archive of the 3rd year anniversary celebrations with the video and twitter archives and information about the Mario Couros Memorial Bursary.
On January 20th we celebrated the 3rd anniversary of the Open and Connected Learning Mooc (etmooc) and launched the Mario Couros Memorial Bursary. Susan hosted the conversation on Zoom which was a new video conferencing program for most participants. Everyone loved the tile display that made us look like the Brady Bunch. …

By happenstance (or perhaps morphic resonance and a harmony of the digital spheres), I saw and read your blog post while working on a very belated response to  dissertation survey question about. Indeed relevant, as are the links in the post.

I'd place my own starting point at 1997-8 with my first online workshop interactions by email discussion and MUD rooms where I met, respectively, +Andy Carvin and +Vance Stevens. The first shaped my online activist inclinations and the second pointed me to +David Winet's EFI, where I volunteered to learn more about teaching online by doing it.

Digital activism and connectivist MOOCs are just continuations of both. For me, it's all one big interconnected set of distributed networks with many neighborhoods and no residency requirement that we have just one address. 

Today marks the traditional Janus day/s of looking forward and backward. Thresholds, doorways and household gods. Appropriate.

Happy to announce that  Erin Luong and I have rescheduled our July #etmooc  gathering (originally scheduled for last week) and are now set to facilitate an hour-long tweet chat (using the #etmooc hashtag) on Wednesday, July 29, at 9 pm ET/7 pm MT/6 pm PT. We'll be pursuing the topic of "Hyperlinked Learning," an idea inspired by the concept of Hyperlinked Libraries, as summarized in this piece:
https://buildingcreativebridges.wordpress.com/2015/04/17/information-services-today-hyperlinked-libraries-makerspaces-learning-in-a-collaborative-world/). Please feel free to spread the word so our wonderful community of learning continues to thrive and grow.

+Paul Signorelli Because this is such an extensive library I feel it needs to be embedded into institutions where people can engage with bits and pieces over many years, or even a lifetime.  Those institutions could be k-12 schools, colleges, faith groups, even businesses who do research and development to innovate new ways to reach customers and better ways to attract and keep talent.  In the #clmooc  a couple of members have dug deeper into some of my work, as shown in this article. http://tutormentor.blogspot.com/2015/07/build-with-me-continuous-process.html  This is my 3rd year in CLMOOC which illustrates the incubation process needed to gather even a few who will dig deeper. I hope you and others can keep the ETMOOC community going for many years, and for this same goal.
