Nairobi 2010 Conference Reoprt - 5 views

    Nairobi 2010 Conference Reoprt  Climate Change and Natural Resource Use in Eastern Africa: Impacts, Adaptation and Mitigation Report of the 3rd Scientific Conference of the Ecological Society for Eastern Africa (ESEA) and co-hosted with the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) at Multimedia University College, Nairobi, 19 - 21 May 2010 By Nicholas Oguge, Caroline Lumosi, Teddy Odindo, Joseph Ngondi and Philista Malaki October 4, 2010 Summary While the Earth's climate has changed throughout history, the current warming trend has been of particular concern because most of it is human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented.  One of the greatest concerns of this global warming is climate variability and change.  The risks associated with climate change add to development challenges such as food and water insecurity. Although climate change is only one of the many drivers negatively affecting biodiversity and ecosystem services, it certainly exacerbates the other factors such as land degradation and unsustainable natural resource use. There is general concern on the accelerating deterioration of the human environment and natural resources. This would widen poverty levels confronting eastern African countries and threaten gains made towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Thus, the Ecological Society for Eastern African organised its 3rd annual scientific conference with a theme addressing this global challenge.  The idea was to bring together researchers, policy makers and the general public together to discuss the climate change phenomena, its impacts, mitigation strategies and adaptation measures with regard to natural resource use in Eastern Africa. In order to address above issues and to reach out to a wider audience, we designed the conference strategically on three tiers:   1. Plenary talks: to provide policy information and direction, science on climate change, ecological and socio-economic effects, how to commun

      Text-to-speech and presentation voiceover, what is the real question? - 0 views

        Text-to-speech and presentation voiceover, what is the real question? As eLearning professionals we need to build an arsenal of tools and the competence for choosing which ones are best suited for each project. When it comes to publish presentations online, Voice talents, home-made recording, Text-to-Speech voiceover, silent and self-explaining pictures are all tools at our disposals. We must learn how to use each one of them.

      50 Interesting Ways To Use Skype In Your Classroom | Edudemic - 19 views

        I'm a so-so fan of Skype. I've used it on an infrequent basis and have had more than a few dropped calls. Audio and video alike. However, it's a cheap way to make long distance calls and seems to work better over wi-fi and the video quality is improving on a regular basis. So therefore it's probably a great tool for the classroom. But how can you use Skype to do more than just make calls? Well, there's a pantload of interesting ways! Check out these fun ideas: Collaborate! Meet with other classrooms: One of the most common projects educators utilize Skype for is setting up exchanges with classrooms around the world, usually for cultural exchange purposes or working together on a common assignment. The program's official site provides some great opportunities to meet up with like-minded teachers and students sharing the same goals. Practice a foreign language: Connect with individual learners or classrooms hailing from a different native tongue can use a Skype collaboration to sharpen grammar and pronunciation skills through conversation. Peace One Day: Far beyond classroom collaborations, the Peace One Day initiative teamed up with Skype itself and educators across the globe to teach kids about the importance of ending violence, war, and other social ills. Around the World with 80 Schools: This challenge asks participating schools to hook up with 80 worldwide and report back what all they've learned about other cultures and languages. Talk about the weather: One popular Skype project sees participants from different regions make note of the weather patterns for a specified period of time, with students comparing and contrasting the results. Collaborative poetry: In this assignment, connected classrooms pen poetic pieces together and share them via video conferencing. Practice interviews: The education system frequently receives criticism for its failure to prepare students for the real world, but using Skype to help them run through mock-up

      Incorporating a back channel in a presentation or lecture - 4 views

        On this page we want to look at how to actively incorporate the backchannel (and hence the audience) in the presentation.  This moves the presentation from one-way delivery to a two-way dialogue with the audience.

      MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning - 0 views

        • Vanessa Vaile
          or other social bookmarking, feed reader, aggregator. the main purpose is collect/collate, tag or label, annotate (time permitting) and curate
      • Feeding Forward - We want participants to share their work with other people in the course, and with the world at large
      • Sharing is and will always be their choice.
      • ...31 more annotations...
      • even more importantly, it helps others see the learning process, and not just the polished final result.
      • The Purpose of a MOOC
      • Coursera, for example, may want to support learning, but it is also a company that wants to make money at the same time
      • Organizations offer MOOCs in order to serve other objectives.
      • MOOCs serve numerous purposes, both to those who offer MOOCs, those who provide services, and those who register for or in some way ‘take’ a MOOC.
      • The original MOOC offered by George Siemens and myself had a very simple purpose at first: to explain ourselves.
      • there are different senses of learning
      • creating an open online course designed in such a way as to support a large (or even massive) learning community.
      • The MOOC as Community
      • Although we learn what we learn from personal experience, we usually learn what we learn from other people. Consequently, learning is a social activity, whether we immerse ourselves into what Etienne Wenger called a community of practice (Wenger, Communities of Practice: Learning, meaning and identity, 1999), learn what Michael Polanyi called tacit knowledge (Polanyi, 1962), and be able to complete, as Thomas Kuhn famously summarized, the problems at the end of the chapter. (Kuhn, 1962)
      • So online communities form around offline activities
      • With today’s focus on MOOCs and social networking sites (such as Facebook and Google+) the discussion of community per se has faded to the background.
      • Online educators will find themselves building interest based communities whether they intend to do this or not
      • Learning in the community of practice takes the form of what might be called ‘peer-to-peer professional development activities’
      • The MOOC is for us a device created in order to connect these distributed voices together, not to create community, not to create culture, but to create a place where community and culture can flourish,
      • The peer community by contrast almost by definition cannot be formed over the internet
      • created through proximity
      • online communities depend on a topic or area of interest
      • Community Access Points
      • This was a project that did more than merely provide internet access, it created a common location for people interesting in technology and computers (and blogs and Facebook)
      • The MOOCs George Siemens and I have designed and developed were explicitly designed to support participation from a mosaic of cultures.
      • It is worth noting that theorists of both professional and social networks speak of one’s interactions within the community as a process of building, or creating, one’s own identity.
      • danah boyd, studying the social community, writes, “The dynamics of identity production play out visibly on MySpace. Profiles are digital bodies, public displays of identity where people can explore impression management.
      • ecause imagery can be staged, it is often difficult to tell if photos are a representation of behaviors or a re-presentation of them
      • In both of these we are seeing aspects of the same phenomenon. To learn is not to acquire or to accumulate, but rather, to develop or to grow. The process of learning is a process of becoming, a process of developing one’s own self.
      • We have defined three domains of learning: the individual learner, the online community, and the peer community.
      • Recent discussions of MOOCs have focused almost exclusively on the online community, with almost no discussion of the individual learner, and no discussion peer community. But to my mind over time all three elements will be seen to be equally important.
      • three key roles in online learning: the student, the instructor, and the facilitator. The ‘instructor’ is the person responsible for the online community, while the ‘facilitator’ is the person responsible for the peer community.
      • recent MOOCs offered by companies like Coursera and Udacity have commercialized course brokering
      • a model that the K-12 community has employed for any number of years
      • where is the French-language community itself?
        post from Half an Hour: excellent explanation of how connectivist moocs work, what the difference is between them and x or wrapped moocs and what open is In this presentation Stephen Downes addresses the question of how massive open online courses (MOOCs) will impact the future of distance education. The presentation considers in some detail the nature and purpose of a MOOC in contrast with traditional distance education. He argues that MOOCs represent the resurgence of community-based learning and will describe how distance education institutions will share MOOCs with each other and will supplement online interaction with community-based resources and services. The phenomenon of 'wrapped MOOCs' will be described, and Downes will outline several examples of local support for global MOOCs.
