Can you help me, please? A quick idea validation check is desperately needed! We are deep into a StartUp Education Weekend in Bangkok and need to bounce this off of real educators before moving forward.
You know how we spend hours searching, reading, viewing and collecting awesome, current content for our students to engage with? And then you know how we test out a zillion different ways to record, organize and share these resources? We are in an age of digital content overload and
What if you could save and arrange all the great free resources you find online (and those found by other great teachers) for a particular unit, subject, course or inquiry into an online learning platform for your students to engage with? We are thinking of taking these ideas that we post in places like blogs, Blendspace, YouTube, Twitter, Google Drive and Pinterest and put them into a user-friendly online course. Think: high quality, human-curated content, easily tracked student progress, customized student responses (video, images, multiple choice, writing. . .) and ranking systems to quickly gather feedback on useful learning resources and courses.
Your students could study in your uniquely created courses or follow their own interests by finding courses organized by other educators. You can track their progress and watch them grow!
Your help is very much appreciated! Please comment below. :)
