The 2014/2015 FabLearn Fellows cohort is a diverse group of 18 educators and makers. They represent eight states and five countries, and work with a wide range of ages at schools, museums, universities and non-profits. Throughout the course of the year, they will develop curriculum and resources, as well as contribute to current research projects. Their blogs represent their diverse experience and interests in creating better educational oportunities for all.
Hi FabLearn Folks!
I went through the resource guides this weekend and made a few comments. I see that many of you have adopted the "overview" page so I tried to make most of my comments on those pages. For some of you, there is still no place to start, we have a collection of documents (good stuff!) but still just a collection with no unifying commentary.
We have more time for peer review, but don't delay!
And this also doesn't mean that your resources have to stay "frozen" while the peer review is going on, feel free to keep adding.
Hope you enjoyed your 3-day weekend! First, I just wanted to say how impressed we all are with the phenomenal work you’ve all done on the resource guides! I’m really enjoying looking through them and will soon add comments and feedback. I just wanted to send a quick reminder about upcoming dates:
May 29, 9 am PDT - Monthly webinar
June 11 - Finish peer review (see below)
June 12 - June 30 - Review comments and complete resource guide.
Hi Fellows -
I'm seeing a lot of work on the resource guides - and I'm looking forward to spending some time looking at them. I hope you are too! This week I'm happy to meet with people on an ad hoc basis or just respond to email. I'll just schedule one webinar on Friday, a "happy hour" if you like. Stop by if you have time and want to chat!
You'll see the invite shortly from the Google Calendar.
Just wanted you to be among the first to know: we’re excited to announce that FabLearn 2014 will take place on October 25th and 26th! We’ll talk more about potential opportunities for fellows to get together before/during/after the conference in the next couple of months.
We are approaching the end of the first cycle of guru resource guide projects. Many of you have met with Sylvia to discuss them, and they are coming together! We appreciate what you have pulled together so far, and are learning a lot about how to structure these resources in future cycles. To wrap up this first round around June 30, we can use the next 8 weeks to finish up what you have, do peer review, and finalize the guide. We know that things online are never "final", but with your help, this will be the start.
I'm glad to be joining the FabLearn team - I've spent some time looking through the blog posts (not all!) and the Google Drive content. I'm starting to understand a bit about what you all have been doing, and it looks great and VERY ambitious! Congratulations for getting so much started so quickly!
