Hi, I teach instructional technology courses for pre-service and advanced certification teachers in a liberal arts college in North Georgia, US. For this upcoming fall, I would love to explore connecting my classes online with either another college class or a k-12 class in some form of Skype-based game/sim. I would also be interested in just a sharing between my class with a similar class of students, I have a special interest in connecting internationally. To start this process though, it would require some dialogue and some validation for each of us to ensure a good learning environment for our students. At this point, I am interested in any ideas involving Skype, or any interest by anyone, teacher or not, that have some ideas. Other ideas might be an online chat between students on digital citizenship, current connectivity issues involving students, how tech impacts learning, but ultimately I would like to explore some online gaming via a conferencing tool.
Please share your thoughts
