MinecraftEDUCanvas Network start komend najaar met een zevental MOOCs die geschikt lijken voor mediawijze docenten of docenten die wat mediawijzer willen worden:

  1. Digital Literacies 1
  2. Digital Literacies 2
  3. Five Habits of Highly Effective Teachers
  4. Getting Started with MinecraftEDU
  5. Minecraft for Educators
  6. Teachers without Borders: Educating Girls
  7. Tinker, Make and Learn

Ik moet zeggen dat sommige MOOCs wel heel interessante leerdoelen hebben, bijvoorbeeld die over “Five Habits of Highly Effective Teachers” (nadruk is door mij toegevoegd):

This course is designed to encourage educators to develop new creative habits that foster personal learning networks, content creation, and innovative learning practices that embrace curiosity, failure and reflection. Each week a new creative habit is explored through the examination and understanding of one’s own relationship to creativity.

The goal of this class will be to increase awareness of personal creativity, to encourage new learning connections in an online environment, to enhance self- expression, and to increase confidence in the use of digital tools through project based activities. Participants are encouraged to share and interact to facilitate a connectivist attitude, get feedback from their peers, and to forge meaningful and personalized ideas about what living a creative life is all about. Educators will be encouraged to tap into their own creative potential while drawing on the synergy created by participating in a creative learning community.

Join us in exploring the power and richness of creativity in our lives. Our hope is that participants will not only draw new meaning and strength from this process, but in turn will provide active and empowering contributions in their own learning communities.

Het duurt in een aantal gevallen nog even voordat de MOOCs van start gaan (oktober of zelfs pas januari 2015).
