Jason Ohler Free MOOC on Digital Citizenship


Free Course of Digital Citizenship – starts next week

Dr. Jason Ohler, professor Emeritus, Educational Technology, University of Alaska, is an excellent presenter on digital literacy and digital citizenship.  Here is a link to his site filled with great resources:  http://www.jasonohler.com/index.cfm      

Ohler is offering a free MOOC on Digital Citizenship starting next week.  You can receive the materials and participate in the discussions for FREE.  Join the free, quasi-MOOC on digital citizenship, starting January 12, 2014 and running through the end of April. It is geared toward educators who want to understand digital citizenship’s big picture issues, as well as develop an understanding of implementation strategies and student activities. Joining the MOOC will be Mike Ribble (Digital Citizenship in Schools), folks from CommonSense Media, Nancy Willard from Cyber Savvy and others. Students are a mix of graduate students from the Univ. of Alaska’s MEd Tech program, and members of the public, who “take the course” on their own terms, for no cost and no credit. Course conversation happens in a public Google+ Community. Feel free to use the course materials for your own purposes.
