September 10-October 7,
The chart is from the North Central Regional Education Laboratory website enGauge® 21st Century Skills: Literacy in the Digital Age 2003 http://www.ncrel.org/engauge/skills/skills.htm - 21st century skills http://www.ncrel.org/engauge/skills/exec.htm.
Threaded discussion takes place in the Moodle:
In 2007 there have been added a PageFlakes site
and a Wiki http://portfolios2007.wikispaces.com/
A multiliterate teacher understands the many ways that technology interacts and intertwines with academic and interpersonal life, and actively learns how to gain control over those aspects impacting teaching, social, and professional development. Multiliterate individuals are aware of the pitfalls inherent in technology while striving for empowerment through effective strategies for first discerning and then taking advantage of those aspects of changing technologies most appropriate to their situations. These strategies include managing, processing, and interpreting a constant influx of information, filtering what is useful, and then enhancing the learning environment with the most appropriate applications.
New for 2007 - This course changes over time as techniques emerge for working more effectively in educational contexts on the Internet. The innovation to be applied in the year 2007 rendition of the course is hands on work with tagging of blog posts and aggregating content through Technorati, news aggregators, and Del.icio.us.

Many more resources are linked from the LINKS page. We'll pull them into the course as we go.
Why is the course being 'run' here? Due to an incompatibility between the latest version of the server or dbase software and the Moodle version running on the server, I have no ability to back up, and participants can not upload photos to replace the smiley that is your avatar. (Desire to Learn almost as bad, no back up, and access to the course granted developers only days before a start of course, whereas I have been developing my course all year round, which I hope participants can appreciate.)
