Emerging Learning Technologies, My Mini-Documentary, and Social Learning

Emerging Learning Technologies……

That was the title of one of the classes I took this semester. As some of you know, I am working on my Doctor of Education at Indiana University in Instructional Systems Technology. This class not only had an exciting title, but also was taught by Dr. Curt Bonk so I knew it would be excellent.

I spent the last few days putting the finishing touches on my final project. It is a mini-documentary about my friend Shannon O’Donnell‘s experience “homeschooling” her niece through her 6th grade year as they traveled around SE Asia.

The past few weeks of the class have been on Social Media Learning and Connectivism and also Shared Online Video (primarily YouTube). That gave me the idea to share out my learning.

Here is the video:

Should more students learn this way? Is this the future of education? Let me know your thoughts.
