Do classrooms need an online incubator?

“The best of MOOCs should be able to bring together ideal, heterogeneous groupings of students based on their profiles and past performance, and also create ample opportunities for them to engage with one another in the spirit of learning.” -Douglas Rushkoff

When teachers engage with their students, learning happens. This is true in both traditional classrooms and virtual ones.

We know students also learn from each other in a regular classroom, but what happens when those interactions are taken away in an online class? Where can educators and students go to discuss ideas and solutions? And what’s an online incubator?

The answers to each of those questions lie within a place called ^IfMine. Now, we ask another question. What is ^IfMine?

An Exciting Launch at SXSW

Needless to say, the official ^ public launch at South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive was an exciting time for us. Austin is quite lively for the week and a half that the conference and festival takes places people were eager to network, discover what’s new, and share their ideas with like-minded individuals. It was the perfect place to reveal ^IfMine to the world, as we’re all about connecting people that know with people that do.

Brian Scavo was on the streets of Austin handing out free ^IfMine t-shirts, and so we’ve chronicled some of the smiling faces that stopped by to grab one. To see how fun our SXSW visit was, check out our Twitter feed from the last few days. Also, check out the photo album on Flickr, Instagram, or in the slideshow below!
