#EDCMOOC Final Artefact by Willa Ryerson

If our goal as educators is to instill a love of learning and civic responsibility to the young minds entrusted to us, then I suggest we use every tool imaginable to accomplish this task. Connectivist Theory and Social Constructivism seem the appropriate means to that end. With all the possibilities that this digital world of ours provide, we as educators should embrace new technology and teach students how to search, filter, analyze, critique,and create from this sea of information. If we are successful in passing on the skills needed, WE will have created that well informed, rational and moral generation who will boldly go and build a better future. My Final assignment for this course is presented here – My Digital Artefact,

  1. This is a lovely artefact, Willa. I like the way that you have kept things simple but said so much through the way that you have sequenced the ideas and the images. Will have to investigate Animoto too, it looks like a great tool to use.

  2. Thank you for your kind words. Yes, Animoto is a great tool, very easy to use and their music library is huge. I did try to keep things simple..as the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words!” I’m hoping that some viewers take a look at the work cited links. The clip about oxycontin is truly touching.
