TTT#407 Welcome Back after Ferguson w/ Marcia Chatelain, Karen Fasimpaur, Alicia Lobaco, Jo Paraiso, and Chris Sloan – 8.20.14 No ratings yet.

We were planning a “Welcome Back” episode on Teachers Teaching Teachers, something about how to launch connected learning with Youth Voices in our classrooms and how to be more planful about connecting our curriculum. #connectedlearning.

How do we do that after Michael Brown’s killing and the Ferguson protests? More than ever we need those days, even weeks of trust-building with our students, yet we also can’t pretend that Ferguson isn’t happening.

In addition to this webcast, we offer a small contribution with a #FergusonSyllabus http://bit.ly/1AkhCba or http://youthvoices.net/michaelbrown using Gooru, NowComment, Crocodoc, and Vialogues.

Start with your own questions, then deepen your inquiry into Michael Brown’s shooting, and the protests and confrontations in Ferguson by choosing from these articles, songs, interviews, photographs, blog posts, podcasts, reviews, videos, reports and surveys.

For this episode of TTT, Youth Voices teachers Chris Sloan, Paul Allison, Jo Paraiso, and Alicia Lobaco talk about how we are going to be launch a connected learning curriculum this year on Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net and how we are talking about and learning from Michael Brown’s shooting, the protests, and the confrontatons in Ferguson. In addition we were also joined by Dr. Marcia Chatelain, who has been organizing #FergusonSyllabus on Twitter. On LinkedIn, Marcia writes:

I am first and foremost an educator. I have been teaching high school and college students since 2003. My career goals include publishing on the experiences of women and girls in the United States, African-American women’s leadership and the relationship between food and society.

Dr. Chatelin is also a Ford Foundation Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow and she is the recipient of a 2012-2013 Ford Foundation Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship to work on her second book on food and civil rights. She is also Assistant Professor in History

#FergusonSyllabus is a great way to connect with others who are thinking about when and how to bring the Michael Brown shooting into the curriculum.

One of the take-aways from this episode of TTT was to be reminded of the power of http://youthvoices.net for our students. It’s important to see and hear the views of students from different communities. The students in Chris Sloan’s classes in Salt Lake City and the students in Jo Paraiso’s classes in Oakland and my students in the Bronx are relatively homogeneous, and they can learn a lot from talking with students outside of their immediate school communities, especially on issues of race.

Here’s a Digital Is http://digitalis.nwp.org/ resource on this topic, written by one of our frequent (and always welcomed) guests on TTT, Karen Fasimpaur:

Why does “open” matter?

Creative Commons Licence

There is a lot of talk about “open” these days. It’s the new black. It’s cool and hip, and marketeers are calling their products “open,” whether they are or not.

But what does “open” really mean? And why should we care?

For the purposes of this discussion, “open” refers to content that can be remixed, modified, and redistributed by anyone.

There’s an endless supply of free content on the Internet. How is open different from everything else that is free? In the United States, any content that is not public domain (by virtue of its age or designation as such by the creator) is copyrighted, whether or not it is indicated as such. Subject to certain excpeptions such as fair use, the copyright owner has exclusive rights to reproduce, prepare derivatives, and distribute the copyrighted work (section 107 of the copyright law).*

Open-licensed content, though, can be reused and redistributed without prior permission.

The most common open licenses are those provided by Creative Commons. An attachment below summarizes the various licenses and gives more info about open resources.

As educators, why should we care about open? Some of the reasons include economics, remixability, and promoting a culture of sharing. We’ll explore each of these in the chapters that follow.

TTT#374 New Youth Voices Connections: Shantanu Saha, Karen Fasimpaur, Jo Paraiso, Jake Jacobs, Paul Allison, Chris Sloan 12.4.13 No ratings yet.

On this episode of TTT six teachers get together to consider how they might get students more deeply connected on Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net.

Paul Allison http://youthvoices.net/ndss#courses and Chris Sloan http://youthvoices.net/Judge#sloan host:

for this conversation

Here are some of the questions we’ve been asking recently:

What if students were encouraged to create projects for each other? What’s the difference between writing a “Discussion Post” and creating a “Wiki” page on a social network like Youth Voices? How might we consider connecting students more often in spaces like Skype or Hangouts? What would it take to build a “Youth Voices Live” space for young people? How can we engage students in deeper, meaning making in their conversations with each other?

On this episode of TTT (recorded 7.24.13), we invite you to join some of the instigators and nurturers of this summer’s #clmooc (A Massive Open Online Collaboration about Connected Learning). Listen as these inspiring educators envision future communitites of learning together.

Making Learning Connected http://blog.nwp.org/clmooc/ #clmooc was a massive open online collaboration — it was a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience focused on making and connected learning. In #clmooc, participants designed and engaged in “makes” — creative projects — that tapped into participants’ personal (and professional) interests.

In this episode of TTT, we talk with several participants and facilitators of #clmooc about their experiences and how they envision taking what they have learned forward to apply it in other contexts.
