Roycemore 2.0 - 23 Griffin Things
Welcome to Roycemore Learning 2.0. This
self-guided online learning adventure
is designed to provide classroom teachers and other school personnel with an introductory "What's out there?" exploration of some common tools and concepts related to Web 2.0.

The goal of the course is to help everyone become familiar with some of the exciting, emerging Web technologies available to support professional, personal and classroom learning in the 21st Century! The course is, intentionally, about
play and possibility
, rather than pedagogy; about
, rather than classroom application; about
discovery and experimentation
, rather than "doing it right." We hope participants make connections and become inspired along the way. Learning is messy, and "mistakes" often lead to new understandings!
Over the next
, you will complete
doable learning activities,
related to Web 2.0 tools and concepts. You should try to complete 3-4 "Things" per week, but should go at your own pace. Each "Thing" will introduce (or expand upon) a new tool or concept through one or more
, followed by one or more
. The discovery exercises are "where the learning really happens" and are necessary for you to complete each task.
You will record your progress by posting to
your own blog
and elsewhere as directed. Your blog will serve as your personal learning journal, a place for you to record your experiences, frustrations, ideas, discoveries, questions and reflections. Your blog will also serve as your portfolio, a living artifact demonstrating your completion of the course. Participants will receive (and
) feedback and encouragement through each others' blogs.
This course offers no formal instruction.
You will be your own mentor, with support from your "online classmates". You will decide when and where to complete each week's activities, and you will be responsible for "keeping up." You are encouraged to form "buddy groups" to work through the content together -- sharing, helping and encouraging each other. Throughout this “discovery learning” experience, you will likely encounter a number of small challenges, depending on your level of Web 2.0 experience to date. Each time you teach yourself something, find a solution or accomplish a task, you will feel empowered and be that much more tech savvy!
