Sorry for all the cross posting, but tomorrow Sunday Jan 20 looks to be a
very interesting day online between the hours of 1400 and 1600 GMT.
The particulars are here:
First up at 1400 GMT is Dave Cormier, details at the link above and
Time: 14:00 GMT; time where you are: http://tinyurl.com/2013jan20gmt1400
We expect to ask Dave about
- The MOOC model for digital practice:
- How he came up with the term MOOC:
- The True History of MOOCs http://www.downes.ca/presentation/300
and the Truer History as well (Leigh Blackall's response, and Dave's
- His viral videos on MOOCs whose premises underpin the weekly
development of MultiMOOC http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eW3gMGqcZQc
- His views on openness in learning (somehow without asking him to
define that :-) http://www.flickr.com/photos/grantpotter/5661229326/
Then at 1500 we'll move along to Google Hangout where Benjamin Stewart is
convening a TILL Sunday discussion on ePortfolios, which we're starting to
talk about in EVO MultiMOOC,
Hangouts are created on the fly, so their URLs are not generated until just
before the event. Normally they are shared within circles. If Benjamin
Stewart is not sharing circles with you (in which case you can find where
he is hanging out via his portfolio), there are other ways to join us
1. you can Skype vancestev for more information
2. Also Vance will remain a while in Elluminate
with voice and recording off,
but you might find me there for text chat directions to the Hangout
If the Hangout doesn't work for you, there is a backup session available
for 1500 GMT, when Pete Sharma and Gavin Dudeney will hold The great ICT
Debate on IWB
Here's more information:
IWBs: a fantastic teaching tool or non-interactive white elephant?
Interactive whiteboards (IWBs) have been around for a long time now. Few
technologies have attracted such controversy. For some, they are a powerful
teaching aid, while for others they are nothing more than an expensive
waste of space, hopefully soon to RIP. Join us for this fascinating debate
on the merits and future of the interactive whiteboard! Pete Sharma will
be defending IWBs, and Gavin Dudeney will be opposing.
So if you're awake and cogent between 1400 and 1600 this Sunday, you are
welcome to join any of these events you think will benefit you and others.
And if you're not, all sessions are being recorded.
