June 5 Learning2gether: Vance & Jim Buckingham discuss Jane Hart's Share&Learn
- Please join us at 13:00 GMT Sunday June 5 in Elluminate when Jim Buckingham and Vance Stevens follow up on this conversation:
Vance: ever used Google Cloud Connect? http://tools.google.com/dlpage/cloudconnect. Nellie was raving about it May 29 at http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/2011spring. Sounds similar to One Note, you can google for the blog with the info http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2011/02/google-cloud-connect-for-microsoft.html
James: just found Jane Hart's new course on Social Media.. that is starting today on her new concept learning platform.. http://shareandlearn.co.uk/
thought that if you hadn't caught wind of it.. that you'd want to know about it.
another key link is http://c4lpt.co.uk/workingsmarter/index.html
Vance: Here's another link to the course is http://c4lpt.co.uk/shareandlearn/register/
James: Share&Learn is a social and collaboration platform that
supports and enables informal and social learning
but which can also be used to track formal learning (i.e. courses) where required.
Vance: wouldn't Moodle or Bb (properly implemented) do that?
James: hmmm... not sure what Jane Hart would say to that..
am curious to know why its catching the eye of others
Vance: depends on what her platform is actually like
James: check out http://niclaycock.blogspot.com/2011/05/tipping-point-in-learning-share-and.html
Vance: You're full of good links today
James: happy to do so..
it's my quota for May.. have to use it up quick.. ;-)
Vance: this last link harks to Jay Cross's Internet Time Alliance http://internettimealliance.com/wp/ and to Harold Jarche, whom I actually connected with at a PI earth day mashup event, right here at the PI, 2 years back http://advanceducation.blogspot.com/2009/04/learntrends-in-global-learn-day-april.html, and Leigh Blackall is writing interesting takes on ubiquitous learning; e.g. http://leighblackall.blogspot.com/2011/03/who-owns-schools-ubiquitous-learning.html and http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Ubiquitous_Learning_-_a_critique and threatening to regale us with them on L2gether
James: I sense that Share&Learn is providing a tool rich environment for people to connect with first, socialize, share common interests.. and then design what they want to learn..
Vance: now you've just described second life
I think what would be interesting would be to have all these areas linked together so students could pursue the modality they prefer
hey why don't we get together this sunday and discuss this topic
James: yeah.. its starting to feel like a buffet .. where one is spoiled for choice
ok.... then there we go..
have registered to join Jane's site.. to take in the Social Media course..
Vance: this will give me some incentive to check out this course and report back on Sunday
James: supposed to start today (May 31)..
Vance: yeah, we report back on Sunday
signing up for the course now ...
