Nonprofit Organizations and Projects

UnCollege  is a “social movement” towards free and open education; the website  includes extensive lists of online learning communities, and free  downloadable educational content. Its stated mission is “to change the notion that university is the only path to success and to help people to thrive in an ever changing world in which it is virtually impossible for educational institutions to adapt.”

TeachUp plans to make teaching and learning from your friends easier over the Internet.

“Through TeachUp!, Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT), is working to transform the traditional approach to learning by introducing a new teaching model that improves the quality of education, prepares students with 21st century skills, and creates a foundation for economic opportunities.

DOT recruits and trains college students and recent graduates to serve as TeachUp! Interns who work in schools to assist teachers and administrators in the implementation of modern technology to enhance their teaching methods.

The TeachUp! program supports the technology enablement of teachers in order to provide exceptional educational opportunities and improved learning outcomes for elementary, middle and high school students.” from source:

The Public School  is a project or experiment in peer education; the public nominates  course ideas, divides into class groups and a teacher is found to  instruct the group and facilitate discussion.

“In 2007, The Public School was initiated in Los Angeles in the basement of Telic Arts Exchange. The Public School is a school with no curriculum. It is not accredited, it does not give out degrees, and it has no affiliation with the public school system. It is a framework that supports autodidactic activities, operating under the assumption that everything is in everything.” from source:

College of Exploration is a nonprofit organization which aims to develop web-based workshops and other resources for learners and educators.

“The College of Exploration is a global learning network. We work with partners around the world on innovative and exploratory learning programs about our environment, the earth, the ocean, technology, leadership, learning and creativity. We are organized as a collegium concerned with programs about our understanding of, and our relationships with and between, our inner and outer worlds.” – from source

Peeragogy Pilot Learning Project sited at Independent Publishers of New England

Drawing on the experience and skills of its 108+ members, IPNE plans to build an open learning & support network (a.k.a. PeerPub-U) to address issues and education in independent publishing – part of its stated mission. IPNE leaders hope that this network will dovetail with other planned membership-building efforts and help raise the standards and maximize success of indie publishers in New England in this fast-changing sector. On Jan. 26, regional independent publishers & authors attended the Greater Boston branch meeting in Arlington, MA. In addition to the live in-person meeting, Peeragogy team members Gigi Johnson, Roland Legrand and Anna Keune joined via Google+ Hangout. IPNE representativies at the meeting perked up at the suggestion that “PeerPub-U” might become a case study in future editions of the Handbook. At the plenary meeting, IPNE President Tordis Isselhardt suggested a Peeragogy-style effort might be more likely to succeed if the organization’s members focused around aspecific project, perhaps an “Independent Publishing Handbook,” in addition to creating resource repositories and exchanging expertise as challenges arise. Regarding the expected challenge of sustaining particpation, Charlotte noted that the 108 members of the association could earn authorship credit for contributing articles, editor credit for working on the manuscript, and could spin off their own chapters as stand-alone, profit-making publications. The project is currently set up in the Basecamp content management platform under “Special Projects.” Peeragogy team members emphasized that there are facilitators, but not an overall leader, of peer-learning efforts, and suggested that potential contributors and facilitators prepare by visiting and selecting out practices and patterns that would  work best for IPNE. See plenary session video.

Student created content: This handbook, created entirely by students of Professor David  Deubelbeiss, is an example product of peer collaboration and co-constructed knowledge.

We Teach | We Learn: A Student Created Content Course Book - “We Teach | We Learn comes with a Teach | Learn VoiceThread so students can practice speaking after each lesson. All students need is a headset or microphone for their computer. Teachers can also make their own Voicethread with these pictures. Just choose copy or find them on efl Classroom 2.0. Perfect for practice or teacher assessment. For info on using VoiceThread see elt and Tech.” – from source PDF

“Student Created Content… is an approach that tries to simplify the teaching/learning process and equalize the power relationship that exists between teacher/learner (much like cll – community language learning does with its focus on the teacher as a language “knower”). It also is a way of instruction that completely focuses on the student’s world/context. It ushers from the belief that all language learning must start from that focal point, no where else. The teacher models and then the students create the content and re-practice based on the teacher’s modeling as an “expert.”  - from source PDF

Stanford University and UC Berkeley: Professor Howard Rheingold has facilitated peer learning and collaboration through the Social Media Classroom.

“With  classes that meet face to face, the Co-Lab can help with  co-construction of knowledge (by group editing of wikis), discussions  that extend beyond the class meeting time (through forums and blogs),  and a constructive backchannel for class meetings through microblogging  and chat.” - Howard Rheingold

Private Sector/Companies

MindFlash is a cloud-based application that allows an employee with expertise in  a certain area to create a “class” and invite other employees to take  it; no more tedious “online training tutorials” from a separate training  department.
