Week 7 of 23 Things – Thing 13: Video – YouTube, Vimeo, and Media Hopper

Looking at YouTube, there's many great videos in my field of Learning Technology, but this video that is one of my favourites is entitled 'RSA ANIMATE: Changing Education Paradigms'. The video has a standard video licence which I did not know about in terms of reuse, which links to previous topics. The platform continues to [...]

Week 6 of 23 Things – Thing 12: OER

Thing 12 asks us to " Find an OER in your field and share it on your blog. To do this, use either the Edinburgh OERs, or the resources provided on the Open.Ed ‘Where to find OERs’ page." There are many places to go for OERs, which was presented to us. So I found this [...]

Week 6 of 23 Things – Thing 11: Copyright

This week we are asked to look at Creative Commons, which is something I have been aware of and make use of in my work all the time (searching for images mainly for publications). So I thought I'd use the search term 'learning technologies' can it came up with this photo (which has , Attribution [...]

Week 5 of 23 Things – Thing 10: Wikimedia

I can't imagine life before Wikipedia, well 2001. It was a cyberspace Odyssey! It's become the way most adults of a certain age find facts whilst watching a TV show. It's also become the way most children complete their homework (I know my Year 7s used to copy and paste what I'd asked them from [...]

Week 5 of 23 Things – Thing 9: Google Hangouts / Collaborate Ultra

I experimented using Google Hangouts this week briefly and have used it in previous years for attending webinars, meeting of the Association for Learning Technology and even presenting at a conference in Ireland a few years ago. This technology has really come on in terms of usability and simplicity in set up and with Google [...]

Week 5 of 23 Things – Thing 8: Facebook

Like over 1 in 12 people globally, I do use Facebook, but not as much I can could or should. Mainly due to the level of data the social media platform would gather on me if I did use Facebook Groups. I have used them in the past, having created and joined a Facebook Group [...]

Week 4 of 23 Things – Thing 7: Twitter

I've been using Twitter since 2009 and over the years I have been exploring many management tools including Hootsuite and Tweetdeck. I have used them both when I've wanted to schedule tweets when I'm on holiday or before or during a conference, which I see more and more of, especially at large conferences such as [...]

Week 3 of 23 Things – Thing 6: Accessibility

The second of week 3's Things, Thing 6 was all about accessibility. This is something that I was very aware of in 2004 when I first started to work in e-Learning as it was then (now Technology Enhanced Learning). Something has got lost along the way I feel, especially in how people deal with accessibility [...]

Week 3 of 23 Things – Thing 5: Diversity

Yay for diversity online. It’s amazing how long diversity has taken to reach online websites and for websites like Bitmoji to come online. I like the idea of representing a more authentic version of yourself, allbeit in cartoon format online, hence my choice for big red thumbs up gloves for my avatar. When most young [...]

Week 2 of 23 Things – Thing 4: Bonus A

I created an 'About.me' page a few years back. I didn't have this website live at the time and needed something to link to from my Twitter profile, so I thought a page with some essentials about me and links to my LinkedIn and Twitter pages would suffice. I use it as a digital business [...]
