Alexander Hayes has been associated with a number of cutting edge education projects over the years, including exploring the potential of StreamFolio, Talking VTE, POV technologies, Drones for Schools, wearable technologies (and the social implications of surveillance, sousveillance, and uberveillance) and most recently, Google Glass through posting his interviews with 60 Google Glass Explorers on YouTube and hosting the recent Glass Meetup #1 in Canberra.

We’ll speak with Alex about his extensive work in these areas. All are welcome, should be F.U.N.

Earlier this week

May 12 Webmaker MOOC begins


May 12 to June 15 – Part 2 of Shaping the Way we Teach English, a MOOC for Language Teachers

You are invited to participate in “Shaping the Way We Teach English: Paths to Success in English Language Teaching“. This is the second course of the series but you did not have to participate in Part 1 to be eligible to participate in Part 2.

This course is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This means that you do not need to log in at any one specific time during the week but you will be given readings, assignments, and discussions questions that are due at a specific time each week. You should log into the course a few times a week to be successful. Registration is unlimited so please feel free to share with your colleagues.

We also encourage teachers to work collaboratively. Many successful MOOC participants have formed facilitation groups. Each individual will still need to submit his/her work online, but facilitation groups meet once a week to discuss the content of the course.

If you complete the course, you will be issued a “Statement of Accomplishment” from Coursera.
