This learning opportunity is an open-access resource for lifelong learning. The aim is to identify the value and implications of using established and emerging technology tools for personal and professional growth. Participants will acquire strategies to develop lifelong learning habits to keep pace with technology change.

This project consists of two associated parts; #EmTechMOOC and EmTechWIKI.

#EmTechMOOC is a Massive Open Online Course, also called a MOOC. The MOOC, hosted on the Coursera platform, provides a supportive environment for dialogue and sharing among participants.

EmTechWIKI ( http://suny.edu/emtech ) has been built to complement the MOOC. It is a socially-curated discovery engine to discover tools, tutorials, and resources. The WIKI can be used as a stand-alone resource, or it can be used together with #EmTechMOOC. Anyone is welcome to add or edit WIKI resources.

The MOOC learning environment is structured around 5 week-long modules. The concepts that are covered include Lifelong Learning and the 4Cs of 21st-century skills, which include Communication and Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking. Participants build a personal ePortfolio to display artifacts created through Discovery Exercises to showcase your accomplishments. The final module provides an opportunity to summarize and reflect on the learning journey.

Learning activities provide accessible, curated information and application exercises pertaining to current and emerging technologies relevant to learners and professionals alike, such as audio, video, social networking, etc.

#EmTechMOOC is not a traditional MOOC. Instead of providing content-heavy information, it relies on discovery-based learning that is under the control of the learner. You will be prompted to locate and explore new resources and tools from the growing EmTechWIKI collection to help you meet your personally identified objectives. You will then reflect on and share your learning and discoveries through your personal portfolio that you will construct throughout the modules in the course.

Complete the MOOC requirements to earn digital badges and a Coursera Certificate of Completion. SUNY affiliates may earn a Coursera Certificate with no fees to enroll.
