Hi folks! Our schedule is officially up on the Paideia website: (http://www.reed.edu/paideia/). For those who cannot access it, I had included a pdf version at the bottom of this email. Most locations are given, aside from a few TBD which we're just waiting on a staff member to okay. We tried to work in all the edits you graciously helped with, but as per usual, if there are any mistakes we missed or changes that were not implemented, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, we will be working on the budget which should be out by the end of the next week. Happy New Years Eve! Your Paideia Czars
Hi Hazel and Paideia Czars, Thanks and looking forward to meeting you on or around Saturday, January 17th in Portland at Reed. Looking forward too to giving this Paideia course about MIT OCW-centric wiki WUaS on Sat. 1/17 and Sun. 1/18 in ETC 205 at Reed. I'll be staying at a/some former Reed house mate's house(s). Thank you! Happy New Years' Eve, ScottHere's the Reed College description of the WUaS Paideia course:
MIT OCW-centric wiki World University and School: How Reedies can wiki-teach here and eventually develop WUaS as interns Scott MacLeod [‘85], 1pm-3pm ETC 205 A Paideia course on how Reedies can teach and develop Creative Commons’ licensed WUaS, which is like Wikipedia with MIT OpenCourseWare, in wiki-subjects that they love. This course will share in a hands-on manner 1) how to curate, edit, add to and develop a WUaS wiki subject page to develop further expertise in that area, 2) how to start a new WUaS wiki subject page as a creative opportunity, 3) how to begin teaching in a Google + group video Hangout and 4) possibly in 3D interactive virtual worlds, if there’s interest and time. Scott
Friendly MIT OpenCourseWare-centric wiki (editable web pages) World University and School presentation to MMM Friends, especially teens interested in free online college In this presentation and as a kind of Friendly leading, I'll share with Multnomah Friends particularly about the free planned undergraduate MIT OCW-centric degrees at startup Quaker-informed wiki online World University and School - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ (see the FGC video here for further information) - as well as other free Friendly creative wiki teaching and learning opportunities. Sharing and Q&A time in the second half of the hour. *
And a more elaborated version of the above:
"Friendly WUaS presentation to young Friends and their parents at Multnomah Monthly Meeting, as well as to Friends of all ages who might like to teach about what they love to their web cameras or online" Greetings. In this presentation, and as a kind of Friendly leading, I'll share with Friends particularly about the free planned undergraduate degrees at startup Quaker-informed World University and School. At WUaS, high school F/friendly students would apply this autumn 2015 and matriculate online to accrediting WUaS in autumn 2016 (studying from their high school rooms most likely); they would take about 40 MIT OCW-centric courses over 4 years for free and MIT-centric degrees. While WUaS isn't Swarthmore, Haverford, Earlham or Guilford, I'm also particularly interested in learning your and Friends' ideas about how to grow online from, and build on, such Friendly schools' experiences. Learn more about WUaS here - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ (with its outreach Google Hangout to FGC young friends) - and here at - "The College at World University and School" - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/The_College_at_World_University_and_School#World_University_and_School_Links." With this presentation, WUaS would like to reach out to many young Friends and their parents who might want to matriculate at WUaS, applying this autumn 2015 and matriculating online in the autumn of 2016; please invite your friends. WUaS is also a wiki (editable web pages) where YOU can teach, and about Quakerism or any other subject, and I'll share with you about this too. Friendly-informed WUaS (with open electronically-mediated WUaS Monthly Business Meeting in the manner of Friends) has a growing number of Quaker-centric wiki subjects/schools - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Quakers_-_Religious_Society_of_Friends#World_University_and_School_Links. WUaS is also a member of FAHE (Friends Association of Higher Education). Concerning Friends' values and concerns vis-a-vis Friends' education: WUaS plans to create a nurturing learning online environment in the manner of Friends where students can flourish. In addition, a Friendly concern that the high cost of higher education is limiting access for Quaker students to highest quality university (e.g. MIT, Haverford, Swarthmore) is something we'll talk about, since WUaS is planning to offer professional degrees, including Law and Medicine, as well as Ph.D.s. at this Quaker-informed online CC University for FREE. Friendly-WUaS also plans to offer online schools in Africa (and in all languages), and in all other least developed countries in the world.
Hi Marge, Jenny, Hearthkeeper and MMM Friends, Thanks. I just heard back an hour ago from Reed College and its student Paideia Czars with a schedule, and will teach there about MIT OCW-centric wiki WUaS based on the announcement below on Saturday, 1/17 and Sunday, 1/18 from 1-3pm. ...For the Multnomah Monthly Meeting Newsletter (or something like this): "I'd like to share with Friends particularly about the free, planned undergraduate degrees at WUaS where high school F/friendly students would apply this autumn 2015 and matriculate online to accrediting WUaS in autumn 2016 (from their high school rooms most likely) taking about 40 MIT OCW-centric courses over 4 years for free and MIT degrees. While WUaS isn't Swarthmore or Haverford or Earlham or Guilford, I'd also particularly be interested in sharing ideas is this Meeting with all of you about WUaS and Friends building on these Quaker schools experiences, as a kind of Friendly leading. The_College_at_World_University_and_School - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/The_College_at_World_University_and_School#World_University_and_School_Links".WUaS is also a member of FAHE (Friends Association of Higher Education).Jenny, Program Committee and friends, could you please begin to announce this in Meeting on First Days. And what, too, is the process for announcing this in the Meeting's newsletter and putting it on the online calendar (if there is one)? Would all of this work? I would plan to do set up et al. Thank you! Friendly regards, Scott*Hi Andy, Elizabeth, Program Committee and Ann, ... Friendly-informed WUaS (with open electronically-mediated WUaS Monthly Business Meeting in the manner of Friends) and a growing number of Quaker-centric wiki subjects/schools - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Quakers_-_Religious_Society_of_Friends#World_University_and_School_Links - would like to reach out to as many parents of young Friends, who might want to matriculate at WUaS applying this autumn 2015 and matriculating online in autumn of 2016, as possible, and my experience with this at San Francisco Friends Meeting, where I'm a member, is that more parents of young Friends are around the Meeting House, for whatever reason, on Sundays than on Fridays. ...Thank you. Friendly regards, Scott*Hi Elizabeth and Hearthkeeper Ann, ... Is there a Quaker group rate for Friendly-informed WUaS (which is also a member of Friends Association of Higher Education) at MMM (I was an attender at MMM from 1979 to 1987) compared with a non-Quaker rate? (I haven't looked at the web site yet). Thank you, Scott*Hi Kathy and All, Thank you for the information, and sounds good. It could be great to reach out possibly to an extended SE Portland F/friendly community who may welcome CC MIT, free, wiki f/Friendly WUaS. And I'll do so as I think of ways. Thanks again. Friendly cheers, Scott*...
