Hi DNLE Team, OLPC friends and and Sugar Labs friends,
First of all... Happy New Year to all!
Some of us recently completed a Stanford Venture Lab MOOC course, Designing a New Learning Environment (DNLE) with lots of fun and a successful project that we are proud to say placed #4 of over 140 projects in the peer voting process! If you would like to see the website that is a result of our project, LocalFi, go to http://www.localfi.org It is still a work in progress, and we would welcome folks who find the project interesting to join us in further building the website, filling it with content, deploying our localfi systems, building teacher training materials, and the like. Just let me know and I can introduce you to our team and have your name added to our mailing list.
Now that that course is complete, Coursera has a shorter one (5 weeks vs 10) from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) on E-Learning and Digital Cultures. It begins on January 28. If you would like more information about this free open class you can find it at: https://www.coursera.org/course/edc If any of you would like to join me in this new learning adventure, enroll and let me know. I don't think there will be any team projects this time, just nice to have some friends in the class to share ideas with.
Finally, here's a "heads up" reminder that the 11th Annual Southern California Linux Expo will be held at the Hilton LAX Feb 22-24. We will have a booth area for OLPC and Sugar Labs (shared area) and I have been approved for at least one talk. If you would like to present, the regular presentations are closed, but there may be openings in the Education track and the fun evening event, "speed geek,"(which they call "UpSCaLE") where you get 5 minutes to talk about 20 slides that are advanced automatically, one every 15 secs. This is a great place for people with small deployments to do a "show and tell." To learn more about SCaLE11X check this web site: http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale11x If you plan to come, we would love to have you help with our booth. In past years volunteers who help get their registration fees waived. It will probably be the same this year. Be sure to let me know if you are coming and can give a few hours (or more, it's fun!) to help out.
Hope to see you all online soon and at SCaLE in February!Caryl
