This was the scenario: “ A year ago we were forced to work online with the implementation of emergency remote teaching and learning because of the Covid-19 pandemic. It seems that in many instances we may still be approaching our teaching practice in the same way without using any of the existing theoretical models forContinue reading "Topic 4: Pondering upon “Design for online and blended learning”"
Many teachers experienced huge distress when they were suddenly forced to move to emergency online teaching in 2020 at the onset of the...
(June 13, a very late blogger catching up finally!) Now this was a greatly inspiring topic, not the least as I had the opportunity to collaborate with Nadia Caldes in the PBL group – acting as “leads” for this particular topic during the run of two weeks.

The webinar by Kay Oddone was mainly focused on Personal Learning Networks (PLNs). Perhaps the ONL itself is an exampleContinue reading "Topic 3 : Learning in Communities"
Topic 2 deepened my knowledge and thought process in being ‘open’. The webinar by Maha Bali was very engaging and enriching. Some of the information that she shared, such as those related to social justice, as well as regional variations of open content (such as Wikipedia having different quality and even information in different languagesContinue reading "Topic 2 : Openness"
It was in Topic 1 that I delved deep into the topic of digital literacy. The webinar by David White introduced the concept of digital residents vs visitors, which is a refinement of Prensky’s digital natives vs immigrants paradigm. As someone who likes to believe most things are a shade of gray, I certainly likedContinue reading "Topic 1 : Digital Literacy"
