We’ll Make It I Swear

Oh. We’re half way there. We are at the start of the second half of #ExtendmOOC. We are at the beginning of the Collaborator Module, with two more to go after this. There’s still a ways to go. But we’ll get there. I love that people are going their own pace, coming and going. Doing it in short sprints here and there. Keeping pace or catching up in bursts. Every day I get notifications that there are badge applications waiting […]

Carry On, Carry On

Today in #ExtendmOOC, it is finally time to really get down to business. Module One is launched! The week we spent getting to know each other in Module Zero has been just a wonderful, fun time seeing educators from all over the place, geographically and discipline-wise, get to know each other a bit. There have been just a boatload of responses from participants sharing where they are and what they do and what they hope to get out of this […]

The Legacy

I’m going to use my final Ontario Extend 9x9x25 post space to try to drum up some interest in a legacy project. Ontario post secondary institutions all have access to Pressbooks EDU sites. I think we should use one to make a Greatest Hits “album”. As of this writing, the 9x9x25 activities have generated 339 blog posts from 44 different blogs. That is 7.7 each. Which either means that lots of people made it at least close to the end, […]

Your Daily Sauce

This is my Ontario Extend 9x9x25 Challenge post #8 If I were asked to name the top 2 things that have helped me to not only develop and hone my abilities as an educational technologist, but also lead me down rabbit holes that have crafted my attitudes and values and love for this whole ed-tech thing, here is what I would answer without hesitation: Doing Dailies. Making Dailies. Now you might be asking, what the heck are Dailies? It’s not […]

Breaksgiving

This is my Ontario Extend 9X9X25 Post for week 7. #TESS18 Robin could for sure have literally dropped the mic when she ended her talk with this beaut. @actualham pic.twitter.com/P3a0Xg4f9n — Terry Greene (@greeneterry) November 13, 2018 I was holding my five month old daughter when I snapped this photo of the final slide of Robin DeRosa’s keynote at eCampusOntario’s Technology-Enabled Seminar and Showcase. (You can read the whole transcript here.) Out of 250 or so attendees at TESS, I […]

Slackers

It's #WriterWednesday so I am challenging a #SquadGoalsNetwork member at random with a #WritingPrompt.The randomizer has chosen @greeneterry to write a short piece to introduce the network to three people you admire. — Squad Goals Network (@SqdGlsNtwrk) November 7, 2018 What a crazy coincidence ! The weird fellow who is currently running the Squad Goals Network‘s social media game has some randomizer that chose me to write a short piece about three people I admire. Thanks weirdo! The prompt prompted me, […]

Ajar Educational Practices

Ontario Extend 9x9x25 Post #6 It’s not a binary, open or closed. I have written this sentence before, as I reflected on attending the Open Ed Conference in 2016.  I think I kind of forgot about it as my work got more and more ensconced in Open. I was almost always talking to, working with, and working for The Open (i.e. those who are fully… in… to… it.). I think I’ve become less and less relatable to those who are […]

Gaming Gamification

9x9x25 Post #5 I have dabbled in the gamification of learning experiences. I think there is promise in using game elements to make learning more engaging in some places. I also think most of us are not there yet. Like many other facets of life there’s that balance to find between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. A lot of work to gamify things seems to be focusing too much on the extrinsic. And like all those other facets of life, the […]
