I’ll keep in brief as I know we have lots of reading to do. I’m an artist working mostly in installation and performance art. I am also an education consultant and visual facilitator when I’m not tinkering and working with thread to build large scale projects.
It began with a crayon and pencil, then I fell in love with oil paint and later on the eyes of a child
I am nomadic. I’ve lived on 3 continents – with the last 5 years in Toronto. Recently, I moved to the shores of lake Erie to a tiny fishing village full of natural wonders. When the sky is just right I can see the dim glowing lights of Cleveland and Detroit across the lake. I look forward to working with you all. I’ve attached a photo of some of my work but you can see more at sandrapoczobut.
If you’re on twitter I will be posting weekly visual facilitation from the course to help support my own and other’s learning.
What a lovely supportive community
Hi I am Diane DarrowI am an artist, writer, educator, and dreamer. I grew up on a small farm in Connecticut, and spent many hours playing in the woods. As a high school student, I was happiest when painting alone in the art studio. When I went to college, I choose to earn a BFA in painting. A few years later, went on to receive an MFA and show my work in galleries and museums.
When my son was born, I began to question why I was focusing my creative energies on object making for wealthy collectors. Deeply affected by Suzi Gablick’s book “The Reenchantment of Art”, I changed my vision of art making and directed my attention on building communities of learners and learning environments. I became a classroom teacher and children became my canvas.
Today I work with teachers and technology. My desire to foster creativity remains my life purpose. The medium have used during my life is wide reaching. I am interested in creation.
My name is Ivan. I’m really happy to share this learning experience with all of you. Talk to you soon.
Hello, my name is Henry De la Ossa de Bogota, Colombia. I have been working on finding new ways of improving education, improving the ability of teachers to teach and students learn, and the role it can play the use of ICT. We explore connectivism, the use of social networks and the possibilities offered by PLE and personal learning networks in increasing the wealth of knowledge available. I am delighted to find people so interesting participant in this MOOC.
Currently I work in Marketing and Social Media for a leading lighting brand in the world of photography. Education bicupid has always been a huge part of my personal and professional career.
As a photographer, I pride myself in learning, and try to stay as current with the ever changing technology and as a trainer I believe learning and marketing go hand and hand.
I hope that moving forward if anyone is looking to make a discussion group I would gladly join up, I think that also helps in the learning process.
I wish you all the best during your time in this class and hope to learn not only from what’s presented and the projects that are given but from the community that is connected to this group.
Hi, I’ve taught technology as an integrator and specialist for nine years, taught scratch and Lego robotics. Right now I’m at home taking care of my new baby! My posts will be brief!
