MAET Words: 123 creators – 1 cool video

by | Wednesday, August 13, 2014

This summer over 120 educators met in three different locations both here in the US and overseas, as a part of the Master of Arts in Educational Technology (MAET) program hybrid classes. The video below, visualizing a quote by Steve Jobs, was created by all of us – one word at a time! The students and instructors featured here are as follows: The first cohort of the MSU-Wipro STEM & Leadership Fellows (in Chicago); three cohorts in the MAET Overseas program (in Galway, Ireland); two cohorts in the MAET East Lansing and MAET Certificate program (in East Lansing MI).

Each word was visualized by a different person, in their own way… but these diverse representations fit together to form a coherent, integrated and powerful message. How cool is that and what an awesome representation of the unity in diversity of the MAET program.

Finding myself in EduPunk

Matt Koehler introduce me to the idea of edupunk. As this Chronicle story (Frustrated With Corporate Course-Management Systems, Some Professors Go 'Edupunk') says, Edupunk seems to be a reaction against the rise of course-managements systems, which offer cookie-cutter...
