The 21st Century Information Project is offering a Moodle based online class: PowerSearching in a Web 2.0 World.
The course starts on September 24. The class is 4 weeks long. Each week we take on a new topic. We will look at searching, evaluating, and ethically using digital information. Along the way participants create a del.icio.us social bookmarking account to track websites of interest. The culminating project is to create a personal search engine on a topic of interest.
We take a game based approach, using learning games and simulations created by Carl Heine to practice some of the essentials of searching & evaluating.
The class earns 2.5 CEUs issued by the Illinois Science and Mathematics Academy.
I'll be facilitating the course & hope to see some TeacherLibrary members later this month!
