    This is a long presentation - but the middle bit is an exercise which can be skipped - about the problems of sharing good practice in education - well worth watching given that a lot of what we do is that.

    At last...I found the link I was looking for. I started to watch this and got drawn into the fact that it was done with the Echo360 system that we use. It looks like a different version of the system though. I've always wondered how worthwhile video is in these cases but I found myself quite liking the video. Maybe that's because I'm a "distance learner". Perhaps video isn't as necessary for people who were at the presentation and are using this for review?

    I've watched most of it so far. I also really appreciate the video - I think the inclusion of it does help you feel more like you are part of a human group. Now, I'd also appreciate the other delivery methods echo does (e.g. ipod) for reviewing something, but it is good to have options to tailor to the individual. I also like the (new?) possibility of switching the layout so that the video is the 'larger' screen some (but not all) of the time. Mostly comments on the software, but the talk was interesting too!

  • NGTiP09 Portfolio typology further to Flourish Eportfolio needs to be discussed in respect of at least four dimensions:  1 Process - collection, selection, reflection, presentation  2 Tools and artefacts: - portfolio: items, systems, presentations (CV, assessed piece of work, etc)  3 Areas of application: - PDP, CPD, PDR, competency assessment, personal reflection  4 Cultures of use: - Disciplines, educational sector, professional bodies, learner preference, maturity, aptitude, attitude  Eportfolio processes are done with tools to produce artefacts for particular purposes. The tool and its habit of use has an effect on the shape of the artefact that it produces. The culture of the site of application determines the habit of use of the tool: there is a "way things are done 'round here."  One size won't fit all. Comments [0]

Carnegie Perspectives: The - 0 views

  • The whole point of the seminar is that ... maybe the students don't get it right, and maybe the students don't know everything about the subject, but it's the fact that the students figured it out on their own that makes it their own, and it makes them able to internalize that subject. ... I learned more in my [seminars] than I did in all my prior learning experience. And I think mostly its because I retained more ... because I was able to take my education into my own hands ... take what I was reading and make it my own.

  • The story of the frustrated student is the subject of a short video produced by students at Manchester Metropolitan University. The university is looking into alternative ways to communicate with students, specifically an SMS service in which messages are sent directly to students’ mobile phones. The system is incredibly simple: staff post a message to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and if the message is urgent, the staff member begins the message with the keyword ‘urgent’. The next 160 characters are then sent as an SMS. It’s an opt-in system which students value - not least because they are more likely to receive the messages if they go straight to their mobile device.

    E-book - I have not read it but it looks comprehensive
  •  
    I have read it (so has Sam I think). It is well worth reading through (at least quickly) to see the range of ideas. There are some good, fairly fundamental, things to think about e.g. encouraging social spaces, flexible spaces, group learning spaces etc. There are also some videos of some british learning spaces somewhere - I'll see if I can find the link.
