A lo largo de las 10 sesiones, estudiantes de Mecatrónica, Sistemas Computacionales y Biomédicos, de ambas culturas, compararon y encontraron posibles soluciones a diversos conflictos cotidianos.

¿Cómo la ciencia de la computación puede impactar más en la sociedad? Con esa pregunta como punto de partida, alumnos del Tecnológico de Monterrey en Guadalajara y de la MacEwan University entablaron conversaciones a través de videollamadas en las que discutieron sobre apps que ayudan a resolver problemáticas sociales.

La dinámica fue parte del proyecto de intercambio cultural entre jóvenes estudiantes a cargo del profesor Ken Bauer, del Campus Guadalajara, y Cam Macdonell de la casa de estudios canadiense.

Spring Cleaning

Hey, Wait

Yes, the previous post declared that summer is here but I refuse to follow the crowd. End of the January-May semester signals summer but it also signals my spring cleaning of my office space which includes the physical accumulation of papers as well as the digital.

Back to Linux

I have my first non-Mac laptop since 2005.  I truly enjoyed the quality of the Mac hardware and there were are software applications that I will miss but I wanted to push back to Linux as my mobile computing platform. My main workspace at home has always been Linux (currently an install of Kubuntu), I have been promoting Linux for use by students and colleagues since the 90s.

Summer is Here

Summer Weather, Summer Plans

Today I submitted the last manilla envelope with grading material. My teacher’s day present to myself as today is “Día del Maestro” here in México.

I always have a full summer without giving classes. I have some invitations to talk about Flipped Learning to a few locations and I’m working on being a more active chair of the board of the Flipped Learning Network. I also want to write the draft of a book for introduction to programming (Python and C++ in same book as that is what I am using lately for two courses).

And I plan to blog more.

So yeah, busy. But I do plan to make it to the beach for at least a few days.

Leap of Faith

Teamwork

This is part of my work in a team working on our TC1014 Fundamentals of Programming course at the Tecnológico de Monterrey and submitted as the stage 2 document.

Principle Characteristics

Implementing CBP moves the focus from learning of concepts to developing skills through practice. Ideally each competency is small enough to give opportunity to display mastery of each separately before moving on to the next competency. Individualized learning through order of completion as well as method of demonstrating mastery are key components for our implementation.

Looking Back, Objects in the Rear View Mirror

Looking Back

I truly believe that reflection or looking back is an important part of our learning process. Taking time for reflection allows me to connect what I’ve learned in the past with my plans going forward.  I’m reminded again of why I changed the title of my blog to “Connecting is Learning” and will once again give credit to that change to my good friend Laura Goglia who has been a key influencer on my this past year. Follow through her tweet to her post and you can even read my comment on that blog post or you can just go straight to her post “Lessons Learned 2016”.

Conference Presentation

This is support for my short 15 minute presentation at the 3rd Annual International Conference on Innovation in Education (my translation to English) in Mexico City on December 13, 2016.

Tools of the Trade

I’ve written before about my work with various tools, the focus lately is on student blogging and using a FeedWordPress setup to create a connected course where my students (and anyone else) can view the syndicated posts of the students in a single place.

Flipping, Que es Flipping?

Vamos empezando la sesión con una presentación y discusión sobre realmente que es Flipping y que no es Flipping.

More than Rescue the Semester

Post Conference Reflections

I was away for four days of classes last week but I left work for my #TC101 #TC1019 and #TC2027 classes. They shouldn’t miss my presence in front of the room since I’m not the focus of the class. Some of those students embrace that fact but some are still reaching to grok what I mean by this student-centred and flipped (in the sense of flipping roles) classroom.

I know, it is difficult, it is messy, but as my good friend (now I actually met her in person) Laura Gogia says it right on the title of her blog “Messy Thinking“. I was able to rename this blog to “Connecting is Learning” through her influence and that of many other amazing educators at (and not at but present through the wonders of Virtually Connecting) #OpenEd16 in Richmond, Virginia, USA.

Students are People
