I strongly encourage you to go check it out. Here’s some interesting things that have been happening:

People have been stepping up and planning live sessions. We have video live sessions and Twitter chats scheduled on the calendar, including:

You can see all the live sessions on the calendar and schedule your own by announcing your topic in the Live Sessions category in the #TeachTheWeb Discussion forum.

This morning Doug and I were pleased to find that of the topics that emerged organically in the Discussion, many reflected the actual Make prompts from the Exploring module. You can see these make prompts here, and be sure to continue submitting your makes and thoughts!

There are a lot of thoughtful interactions happening inside the #TeachTheWeb discussion:

You can join in any time to ask questions, give feedback and have fun learning and making with the entire community.

Next week, we’ll start building open educational resources in a collaborative fashion and working on giving each other constructive criticism.

It’s been a great week, looking forward to MORE!!

    Thanks for the week’s roundup and for the mention. I am constantly impressed with how my students live, actually live, in their digital spaces. This is the big generational jump for me to understand and empathize with. I don’t really think I can continue to teach without exploring and making that happen with regularity and depth in my own digital life. So…thanks for giving me and all of us potential digital folk an opportunity to walk through and squat at #TeachTheWeb. Mostly, thanks for actually listening to my rambles through the brambles of digital life.

    I hope you can roll with it.
