Some teachers recommended the book “When Marion Copied” for teaching kids about plaigarism in elementary.
A website with music that you can use for classroom work. (not safe for podcasts, though.) This was recommended at Kyle Dunbar's 3rd session for the Flat Classroom virtual book club discussion tonight as we talked about Digital citizenship.
Sad to see that the first major fail of a MOOC would happen at my alma mater, Georgia Tech, but I do applaud their transparency and moving forward with it. I hope they do it soon. With 41,000 students in the #foemooc – they had 40,000 students in a google doc which has a limit of 50 simultaneous editors – and with no backup – they weren't ready for the problems that would happen. This was a Coursera course and it just couldn't handle the load. Interestingly this was a Fundamentals of Online Education MOOC which makes it even more ironic. Read this article for more about what happened. “Maybe it was inevitable that one of the new massive open online courses would crash. After all, MOOCs are being launched with considerable speed, not to mention hype. But MOOC advocates might have preferred the collapse of a course other than the one that was suspended this weekend, one week into instruction: “Fundamentals of Online Education: Planning and Application.””
