I LOVE AMuseWorld!
I’ve joined LCL as I’m interested in this area of creative learning and how highly engaged community experiences can be further defined (e.g. interaction, applied behavioral economics in relation to emotional states) and applied across various sectors. I’m also applying to be a grad student with the Lifelong Kindergarten Research Group next year and hope to get accepted so I can pursue my research interests in this area academically.
How did this come about?I was a mentorship coordinator for international & exchange students at YorkU for 2 years and during that time, our team managed to increase enrollment by 400% and participation in monthly events were consistently well attended.
” MOOC. At the end of the course, staff sent out an invite for those interested to come to MIT for a bootcamp this summer. I applied and was accepted. The pre-bootcamp weeks that followed were a blur, we started self organizing, first on the edX platform and then subsequently on Facebook.
My hope is to create a support system through social media that will promote and guide under-priveledge students for the Los Angeles Community College District which is the largest in the nation with 9 colleges under one district
In less than a week (working globally around the clock & without having met), we managed to gather those who were selected to form a critical mass, divvying tasks up and assigning them to groups based on areas of expertise (brand creation/pr, video pitch, crowdfunding campaign, sponsorship letters, etc). Through this, I’ve realized how the pre-bootcamp prep was key to building a highly engaged and motivated community. When we finally met in person in Boston, it was like we already old friends and the in-person working experience at the week-long bootcamp was even more fulfilling.
While still recovering from the bootcamp, I’ve learned that (it is more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy and) it is more about the journey rather than the destination and perhaps, the best way to do this well is to journey together as a community and creatively share what we’ve learned to others so as to better understand it ourselves.
Hello World, I am encouraged by this forum to help my students achieve educational goals. I am a Political Science Professor at Pierce College in Los Angeles, CA for the past 10 years. I teach in the classroom on campus as well as on line. I look forward to participating and being a part of this learning community. Tony Fernandez

I have a 6 year old ds because I am passionate about getting girls engaged in Science, engineering, and technology. What a great way to ensure they see the world in a global perspective. I recently took my daughter throughout several countries in Europe and it was the first time she had an opportunity to hear so many different spoken languages at once. And the colorful fashion and food! It was an amazing eye-opener for her. However this type of travel is not always a possibility for girls to have the experience, so this application – Amuseworld – is brilliant!!
