The most interesting things I've found were the Bendito Machine videos, I even showed them to my students in my Advisory class, and we discussed some of the topics we found there (abuse and use of technology, the excess in our culture, technological determinism etc) It was very different. Actually I shared them also on my Facebook page as well.
Besides this, one of the files we were assigned to read was one from Marc Prenksy which was called "Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants" and the most interesting idea I got out of it comes from this phrase:
“Different kinds of experiences lead to different brain structures, “ says Dr. Bruce D. Perry of Baylor College of Medicine.
I knew that technology had affected every aspect of our societies and of our culture, but I never thought it had change the physiology of our brain. After putting some thought into it, it made a lot of sense, I live with my 50+ mom, and sometimes it is difficult to communicate. Although I would have to admit, my mom makes a great digital immigrant, she has Facebook, email and a smartphone.
What stays with me from this week of #EDCMOOC is that we as teachers must adapt to our student's reality and allow them to be their technological self; as we provide them with RELEVANT (technologically relevant) content and ways of presenting the content of our subject.
