What have you learned from/with Alec Couros?
First and foremost, I have learned what Open Thinking is, as well ashow much potential/possibilities it has. I have learned how to use Twitter, as well as how to incorporate modern technology into theclassroom from Alec; this has been very beneficial for my pre-internship at the U of R, as I have received a LOT of praise for mytechnological literacy and interest - something that I must credit Alecfor. Simply put, I was interested in technology before; Alec was thecatalyst for making me use it in my educational program.
In what ways have you shared what you have learnedfrom/with Alec Couros?
In what ways have I not shared what I have learned from Alec Couros isa better question! I am a part of his EC&I 831 class, which is superexciting for me, as I look forward to being a part of the Elluminatesession after my final night class each week! I sound like a genius inmy classes, as an undergrad, and I sound like the most intelligentperson bringing up such topics in class such as: "contructionism vconstructionism" and "open vs. closed education," to name a few.Moreover, Alec has allowed me to get a glimpse into what the Master'sprogram is like, and quite frankly (after being a part of EC&I 831) I amappalled at the insignificant and useless stuff that undergrads learn -compared to Master's students! I am now looking forward to gettingmy undergrad completed, so that I can take my Masters (and hopefullybe in Alec's class - officially!)
