I stumbled upon this link on FB the other day and knew I had to sign up. I’ve never taken an online class before, but this one is free and is sponsored by Stanford University. After reading more about it, I was immediately drawn into the course. This online course is open to all and will compose of final project where you and your team members will create a new learning model to cater 21st century learners and environments. It’s intriguing to think about creating a completely new model. Instead of complaining about our school systems, it’s time to find a solution to the problem.
I’ve always wanted to start my own school that would think outside of the box and revolutionize education. So, here I am, signed up, and not sure what this really means. It says the workload is only 4 hours a week. I hope I’m not in over my head. Class starts on October 15th. Why don’t you join me and sign up as well? Maybe we could even form a team together. :)
