We hope this finds you well and that you are starting to feel at home in this ONL course environment! These past two weeks were meant to give you opportunity to familiarize with the different learning spaces and tools and to get to know each other and the group facilitators through the ONL community and/or the PBL groups. We are pleased to see that so many of you have started sharing experiences and reflections in your blogs and that the PBL groups have met in hangouts, made group presentations and started to try out collaborative inquiry using the FISh model.
As we are now entering Topic 2, reflect on your experiences and what you have learnt so far. You may want to share some reflections in your blog in addition to your first post on entering the course. Sharing the link to your blog in our ONL community and/or the ONL bloglist will give more people a chance to read and comment! Please also share your PBL group work from Topic 1 in the ONL community. Support each other by commenting on each other’s posts in the community and/or directly in the blogs!
This second topic is about Digital Literacies – we hope for fruitful discussions about this and how it links to our personal and professional practices. To start with, please look at the Topic 2 page where you will find information about aims, activities and resources for the topic. As an early introduction to the topic, we started with a webinar with Sara Mörtsell already on Monday October 5th – don’t miss the opportunity to view the recorded webinar and to discuss with Sara in the ONL community during this topic.
If you learn within a facilitated PBL group, please remember to access your PBL group space in Google+ regularly and participate in the group activities. If you are having difficulties with actively participating during the week, let the group members and the facilitator know as soon as possible.
In our timeline we have reached Topic 2 – Digital literacy
DEADLINES FOR PBL- GROUP WORK
DEADLINES FOR BLOGS
We have now reached topic 2 in our timeline. If you are aiming for a certificate (check participation modes and requirements) you should by now have written your first reflective post about entering the ONL course and maybe some additional reflections on your experiences.
If you are part of a PBL group you should have been active in discussions on how to form as a group and participated in some of the collaborative work.
See you all online.
The ONL team
