MOOC for You

Let’s drop in to the middle of a MOOC!

A MOOC is a Massive Online Open Course. There are a lot of different MOOCs out there, some better than others. This is a link to a one hour video from a MOOC centered around a book called “The Innovator’s Mindset”. During this one hour video, they talk to an innovative teacher/author of another book called “Ditch that Homework”. Whether you agree or disagree with her ideas around homework, this video also touches on so many concepts we have been discussing lately. They discuss student choice, quality feedback, the importance or reading, spreadsheets, and the 5 E’s education model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, Evaluate).
If you find it interesting, it is one video of a group of videos in this MOOC all available on youtube.

Discussion: Calendar Apps


Sunrise and Cal side by side

I think everyone I know has struggled with finding a calendar app that works for them. I have calendars from so many different places (personal, work, Gmail, iCloud), and I need an app that integrates them all in a way that is easy to view and simple to use. Currently, I use Cal (by the folks who created Any.Do), but I’m also testing another app, Sunrise.

What app are you using? Pros? Cons? What are the most important features of a calendar app?
