Course Description and Rationale:

When it comes to perspectives on teaching and learning, the Web 2.0 has changed everything!  Don’t believe it?  Back in December, Time Magazine named “you” as the person of the year.  The Web 2.0 (also called the Read-Write Web) empowers learners to generate ideas and comments online, rather than simply read or browse someone else’s.  In effect, instead of passive consumption-based learning, we are living in a participatory age where learners have a voice and potentially some degree of ownership over their own learning.  Here at the start of the twenty-first century, emerging technologies – such as online photo albums, blogs, wikis, podcasts, ebooks, YouTube videos, massive multiplayer online games, simulations, virtual worlds, and wireless and mobile computing – are generating waves of new opportunities in higher education, K-12 schools, corporate training, and other learning environments.

 

And today’s millennial learner, immersed in an increasingly digital world is seeking richer and more engaging learning experiences.  Amid this rising tide of expectations, instructors across educational sectors are exploring and sharing innovative ways to use technology to foster interaction, collaboration, and increased excitement for learning.  Unfortunately, as any high school student will tell you, this is far less common than most would hope.  In response, it is time to take advantage of the new participatory learning culture where learners build, tinker with, explore, share, and collaborate with others online.  It is also time exploit free and open educational resources, opencourseware, learning portals, and open source software across educational sectors and income levels.  This course, therefore, will be a journey into the learning technologies (i.e., nature), pedagogical opportunities (i.e., nurture), and the people, societies, and cultures where this is happening now!  We will create and publish a cross-cultural Wikibook on Web 2.0 technology.  We will explore the motivational and educational value of YouTube and other online videos and create a few of our own. Of course, we will also blog on our experiences.  And we might even create a few class podcasts or vodcasts.

 

In an age when eyeball-to-eyeball learning is no longer necessary, effective online instructors do not simply teach but moderate, coach, and assist in the learning process.  As proof, dozens of pedagogical strategies utilizing Web 2.0 and other emerging learning technologies will be demonstrated, evaluated, tested, and discussed.  As part of this, Bonk will present his “WE-ALL-LEARN,” “R2D2,” and “TEC-VARIETY” frameworks.  Importantly, strategies discussed and modeled will address learning in all formats—K-12, higher education, corporate, university, military settings, etc.  You-Too can participate.

 

Course Goals and Objectives.  After the course, students should be able to:

1.    Successfully embed motivating instructional strategies for different types of online courses;

2.    Design an innovative research or evaluation project related to online learning;

3.    Define and use different Web 2.0 technologies;

4.    Consult with organizations to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning courses, programs, and events as well as Web 2.0 technologies;

5.    Explain and demonstrate the educational benefits of podcasts, wikis, blogs, virtual worlds, simulations, social networking software, etc.

6.    Make recommendations regarding online learning initiatives.

7.    Critique articles related to emerging learning technologies and associated pedagogy with them.

8.    Recognize and potentially contact many of the key players and scholars in the field of online learning and Web 2.0 learning technologies.

9.    Use online resources and portals to find useful course materials.

10.Successfully submit research or other proposal to a learning technologies, Web 2.0, or e-learning conference or institute.

 

Required Texts: None!!!  The world of learning should be FREE!

Class Tasks:

 

A. Weekly Attendance, YouTube, and Being Energetic (WAYTaBE). (50 points = 15 pts for attendance; 15 pts for participation; 20 points for YouTube presentation)

 

Besides reading 3 assigned articles each week, during the semester I want you to read 15 other articles or tidbits from the packet of readings.  You must also bring one educational YouTube video or other online learning resource to show in class for 10 minutes 1-2 times during the semester.  In terms of class attendance, it is your responsibility to come to class and experience the unique activities that will be incorporated into each class.  A combination of readings, verbal and written reactions to ideas, observing demonstration tools or videos, and hands-on activities will be critical to your growth as a class.  Keep in mind that I want to hear from you!  Participation is encouraged at all times.

 

B. Blogging or Movie Making (Blogging M&Ms) (90 pts: Due December 3rd)

 

Option 1: Blogging.  Instead of a large class discussion forum, I want to have everyone to create a Weblog (i.e., a blog) to reflect on his/her personal article readings and ideas related to class.  You might also blog on the progress of the Wikibook we will develop as a class.  Minimum of 15 posts (30 points).  You will be assigned a critical friend to give feedback to on their postings each week (20 points).  You might create a Blog using Pitas.com, Blogger.com, LiveJournal, Diaryland, Free-Conversant, or some other blogging tool.  A 2-4 page single spaced reflection paper on this activity is due December 3rd with your blog postings attached (40 points).

 

Option 2: Movie Making: Video Blogging, Video Podcast, or YouTube Video. I like options and challenges and I bet so do you!  Instead of a blog, you might experiment with a video blog (for 5 bonus points). Or you might create a YouTube video instead of doing a blog.   Or you might create a Video Podcast or series of class podcasts instead of the blog.  You must still do the final 2-4 page single spaced reflection paper on your activity.

                                                               

Sample Grading Criteria (30%--60 Points; 10 points a piece):

1. Relevancy to class: meaningful examples, relationships drawn, interlinkages, connecting weekly ideas.

2. Interesting/Insightful: interesting reflections (or cool video created), originality displayed, unique ideas.

3. Completeness: thorough comments, detailed reflection, fulfills assignment (or quality video).

4. Depth: moves thoughts along to new heights, exploration is fostered, breadth & depth, growth is seen.

5. Diversity: some variety in ideas, some breadth to exploration, can see other perspectives, flexible.

6. Reflective: self-awareness and learning displayed in reflection, coherent and informative reflection.

                   

C. Midterm Assignment Reality Check (MARC) (50 pts—Due October 15th)

 

            Option 1: Wikibook Chapter Search and Summary.  In this option, you are to find 15-30 articles related to your final Wikibook project and summarize them into mini1-2 paragraph abstracts and notes.  Turn in a 3-4 page single spaced reflection paper on the direction of your project and your learning to date.  Why is the topic important and interesting?  Attached to the paper should be your abstracts, drafts of the chapter so far, and a personal timeline for completion of your wikibook project.

 

Option 2: Web 2.0 or E-Learning Interviews.  In this option, I want you to interview at least one instructor who is teaching or has taught online courses, workshops, or events as well as a student who has taken such a course.  Or, interview an instructor who has used Web 2.0 technologies in teaching and a student who has used Web 2.0 technologies in learning.  Interviewees might come from corporate, K-12, military, government, or higher education settings.  Interviews can be live (face-to-face), via phone or videoconferencing, or conducted through email.  You might also perform case studies, focus group sessions, or pilot observations of instructors or learners using online learning tools in a school, workplace, or informal learning setting.  You are to document their life as a Web 2.0 user or online participant (timeframe up to you).  In effect, I want you to gather their life histories as a technology learner or instructor and compare these to their online experiences.  Then I want you to create a visual representation that compares or relates your stories from both the online instructors and students.  Please include interview questions in an appendix.  In your report, I want you to reflect on what you learned about e-learning from this assignment.  How might you put some of their ideas to use in training programs or in your own teaching?  Have these interviews opened your eyes?  What might you have done differently? Your reflection paper should be 4-5 single spaced pages.  The visual is in addition to this. 

 

Option 3: Visual Representation. Sometime people struggle to make sense of all the changes in learning technologies.  They need models and frameworks that simplify and explain things.  In this option, I want you to create a visual that summarizes some key aspect of your learning in this course or that uniquely organizes some of the information.  This visual representation might be in the form of a timeline, model, framework, acronym, figure, diagram, a comparative flowchart, taxonomy, a Venn Diagram, or a comparison and contrast table or matrix.  Include a 3-4 page single spaced reflection paper with this visual.  We will share these visuals with the class when done.

 

Option 4: Strategic Plan Critique and Extension:  Find and evaluate a strategic plan of a company, university, non-profit organization, school, state, province, country, or region related to the Web 2.0 or e-learning and critique it.  For instance, you might pick the state or country where you were born or perhaps where you plan to live after graduation.  You might find the strategic plan online or request a hardcopy version.  I want you to not simply read and critique the report but to also interview someone who created or is/was affected by that report.  You might discuss and critique the online learning technologies highlighted, proposed pedagogical plans, intended training methods, targeted skills or competencies, or evaluation methods detailed.  You might visit the institution or organization or write someone an email.  What might this organization do differently in planning for e-learning or using the Web 2.0?  What are its competitors doing, for instance?  Has there been an update?  (Note: I may have access to a couple reports from different countries that I can share as examples.)  You are encouraged to work in teams on this report.  When done, you will present an overview of the report to the class.  Testimonials, graphs and trends indicated growth, comparisons, and other data or handouts are welcome.  You are also encouraged to directly contact the organization that developed the report or plan and receive additional product information (e.g., CDs, brochures, white papers, technical reports, product comparison sheets, videotapes, company annual report, customer testimonies, data sheets, Web site information, etc.).  Your critique should be 4-5 single spaced pages (excluding appendices).

 

1. Review of Plan or Document (clarity, related to class, organized, facts, data, relevant, style)

2. Relevant Resources and Digging (citations/refs, linkages to class concepts, completeness)

3. Soundness of Critique (clear, complete, practical, detailed, important, implications, coherence)

4. Creativity and Richness of Ideas (richness of information, elaboration, originality, unique)

 

 

D. Wikibook Online Work (WOW) (70 points—Due December 3rd)

In this class, we will create a Wikibook related to emerging technologies.  We will use Wikispaces and perhaps post to the official wikispace Website.  Everyone will write one chapter or a significant chuck of one and edit 2 or more chapters of their peers.  You can collaboratively write a chapter with someone else. We will likely collaboratively work with Dr. Inae Kang’s class at Kyung Hee University in Seoul.  Each chapter will be a minimum of 2,000 words.  Each person in class will present their Wikibook chapter or section as well as chapters that they edited or provided feedback to the class the final day (20 points).  If possible, I will try to arrange a videoconference sharing day with the students from Korea at an appropriate time for both classes.  A 2-4 page reflection paper on what you learned from this activity is due December 3rd with your blog postings attached (50 points).  Attached to your reflection paper will be documentation of what you contributed to the Wikibook, including your chapter (with highlights or special notations of your contribution), highlights to the chapters worked on, and perhaps even print outs of the wikibook chapter editing history.

 

Nari Kim may conduct a research study related to your Wikibook Online Work (WOW) participation, so please try to WOW her and everyone else!  Participation in this research (such as interviews, surveys, or focus groups) is optional.

 

=================================================

Wikibook Grading (50 Total Points or 10 pts each dimension):

1. Chapter relevance—Topic and contribution is meaningful and relevant to class, we learn from it

2. Chapter creativity—Original and distinctive ideas, insightful points, something unique in it such as a figure, model, graph, timeline, comparison chart, acronym, quote or set of quotes, etc.

3. Chapter coherence—Good flow, well organized, good layout, enjoyable to read

4. Chapter completeness—Sufficient coverage of information, extends topic and class

5. Helpfulness on other chapters—provided feedback to others, much work documented

 

Presentation Points: (20 Points or 5 pts for each dimension)

  1. Organization: good pace, flow, coherent, and transitions
  2. Creative/Interesting: audience engaged, presenters showcase their creative ideas
  3. Completeness: thorough presentation without going beyond time limits
  4. Informative: Handout(s), relevance, practical, helps make connections

=================================================

 

E. Options to one of the above assignments:

In place of task B or C (maybe to D—depends on class size), you might volunteer to create a usable class product (e.g., an online glossary, a Web site for the class, a database of articles on different class themes, organize a class mini-conference or real conference symposium, review a key journal in the field for major themes or trends and share that research with the class, etc.) or you might demonstrate a Web 2.0 or e-learning tool to the class.  Such a tool may have relevance in K-12, military, corporate, or higher education settings or perhaps in more informal settings such as a museum, zoo, or computer club.  See the instructor about the possibilities of demonstrating a particularly interesting e-learning tool you have found.  You might have other task option preferences.  Or you might trade a task for a major problem-based learning project related to this class with a company, organization, or institution.  You make the contact and find out what needs to be resolved and then get it approved by the instructor.  It might be a Web 2.0 or distance earning evaluation project.  It might involve the design of e-learning tools and resources.  It might entail the creation of a strategic plan, white paper, or vision statement.  It might involve the creation of an e-learning conference or journal. Whatever the problem or task, it must be an authentic activity.  You will present the final project at the end of the semester.
