Make Cycle #1: How to…

First assignment, let’s remix the How To format!

a) Make a How to Be! connected to something that introduces who you are, your hobby or your community.

This is my Selfie about How to Behave Like a Swede (A selfie is a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone – Wikipedia).

The text on the T-shirt reads:

  • Capital: Stockholm
  • Population: 9 million
  • Currency: Krona
  • Food: Herring
  • Dress: All natural
  • Music: Abba
  • Pastivities: Sauna’s

 

 

b) Share your favorite examples (and non-examples!) of good How To guides:

The co-facilitators weekly newsletter introduced us to wikiHow and I found How to Get Six Pack Abs, but you can also take the shortcut How To Get “Ripped” Without Exercising.

In the CLMOOC Make Bank I submitted the assignment  Create an Animated Avatar.voki02

I then decided to add my tutorial and made this post the URL. On the About Voki page you can read:

The Voki characters can be customized to look like historical figures, cartoons, animals, and even yourself! Give your Voki a voice by recording with a microphone, using our dial-in number, or uploading an audio file. Voki characters can be emailed, shared on social media, and embedded on websites!

After creating an accont I made the following selections:

  • Head: Toons-Male-Teen Ryan
  • Hair: Spiky
  • Mouths: Narrow
  • Face Hair: None

Joining CLMOOC (Week01)

Today Making Learning Connected (#CLMOOC) begins. The Educator Innovator has set up a micro-investment fund for online meet-ups enabeling educators to move their practice toward connected learning and community engagement. The course is organized into weekly Make Cycles, with open-ended invitations to make, play, learn and connect. In this introductury post I will formulate my learning outcome, since my experience is that after the 7 week period (June 13–August 1) this will support my own reflection. During the first Make Cycle we focus our thinking and reflection around the ways in which “How To guides” can be used to share who we are and the things we are good at.clmooc_120px

Make Cycle Week 01:

a) Make a How to Be! connected to something that introduces who you are, your hobby or your community.

b) Share your favorite examples (and non-examples!) of good How To guides.
