SUNY Exploring Emerging Technologies for Lifelong Learning & Success (#EmTechMOOC): a Globally Accessible OER Resource

Abstract
Participants will test drive the State University of New York’s “Exploring Emerging Technologies for Lifelong Learning and Success.” This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is an open-access resource targeted toward a diverse group of learners, including students, faculty, and anyone from across the globe with an interest to learn how to use freely available established and emerging technologies to succeed in today’s rapidly changing environment. Learners in this MOOC gain an understanding of the value and implications of using technology tools for career and personal advancement in a framework of lifelong learning strategies and the 4Cs of 21st-century skills; communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. The modules feature Discovery Learning Exercises for hands-on learning about a variety of available technology tools and resources. The final module involves a peer-review activity of the ePortfolio that participants develop that highlights the artifacts created in the first four modules. The MOOC’s complementary EmTechWIKI is a socially curated collection of technology tools and resources that is also available as a stand-alone open educational resource. This session begins with an introduction about #EmTechMOOC followed by hands-on experimentation and play in the actual MOOC. Participants build a personal toolbox and learn about web-based technology tools and explore the continued use of the MOOC in their own lives for personal and professional growth.
