Possible Upcoming Questions

  • I think it would be interesting to hear about peoples productivity workflow, what are the ways you work? How does tech help or interfere, are there best practices for curating, organizing and how can we best teach students to form good productivity habits online? This is something I think about every day. With so many choices of tools, how do we narrow down the field and choose the essentials that really help us be more productive, better communicators etc.
  • Do the students have a PLN have they mastered social networking; are they prepared to lead others? How are they forming relationships?
  • How do you find out about cool conferences?
  • Why are fewer people participating in free online conferences, webinars and moocs? over saturation or????
  • What potential does social media have for professional development in education?
  • How about the fight to stay relevant or cutting edge in your field? Anyone feel that it's more challenging by the day?
  • What's New?  (old style ETW link dump)

EdTechSomething#0 - The EdTechWeekly Gang Rides Again @Eduquestion

EdTechSomething#0
@eduquestion possibilities for show reboot

March 30, 2014

While the EdTechWeekly Show has been 'on hiatus' for quite a while, our skype group chat has remained active. Yesterday Dave posted...

I just had an idea for resurrecting edtechtalk...
twitter hashtag #Edneeds (or something better)
use ifttt to automagically get it to post to a wordpress account
carry other tags as category
encourage people (through sharing service on the wordpress) to volunteer answers
do  a weekly review show going over some of the cooler problems/solutions
would take an hour to build
15 minutes of prep before show
done and done
Jen & Jeff were on board right away and (of course) John had his curmudgeonly doubts, but we were all quite pleased to Hangout together again on a Sunday Night/Monday Morning and discuss possibilities.

From Vance's write-up on Learning2gether.net

Alexander Hayes is completing a PhD on wearable technologies.  He feels, in his words, that ”we are on the cusp of a substantial shift in how we consider wearable technologies likely in the next 6 – 24 months … there has been a discernible shift in the “heat” generated from major consortiums now bringing to market technologies that are pervasively poised to radically re-organise what is said, done, remembered and perhaps more importantly re-wired for other parties purposes.

“Google Glass provides us all with a reason to question what it will mean to be interacting with our peers, family and loved ones through the fashion filter of a networked and location aware device. Body worn technologies such as Memoto and Autographer also join the list of data logging devices that we use to monitor and transmit data from our daily activities, either for health awareness, entertainment or myriad of other reasons.”

In this session, members of Webheads in Action, TALO, Worldbridges, and affiliated online communities and thought leaders will discuss the benefits, risks and perhaps harm that may arise with the rollout of second generation intelligent (smart) wearable technologies in our society.


 
 

TTT#312 3rd Space 2 - Dave Cormier, Kirill Kireyev, Kristen Specketer, Mary Reilly, Daniel Craig, Fred Mindlin, Jeff Lebow 8.29


54:35 minutes (24.99 MB)

 

On last week's TTT edtechtalk.com/node/5123 we were joined by some of the participants from a "3rd Space Conference" ourcolab.org/the-invitational-summer-institutes-teachers-teaching-teachers/  in July and others interested in community collaborations. The conversation centered on combining the insights and work of artists and museum professionals with hands-on art making and collaborative curriculum design.
 
On this episode, we carry on the idea of a 3rd Space, both in regard to physical and mental spaces. We talk about the idea of the entire city as the school, as well as a possible means to ground the chaos in the event an entire city was set free to play with this idea. Imagining a focus more on a networked individualism (B Wellman), than a standard prescription.
 
Monika Hardy is our host and our guests are: Cristian Buendia, Dave Cormier, Dave Cormier, Kirill Kireyev, Kristen Specketer, Mary Ann Reilly, Daniel Craig, Fred Mindlin, and Jeff Lebow.

TTT#309 Badges:Peril/Possibility P. Rawsthorne, A. Zellner, V. Gennarelli, E. Eidman-Aadahl, S. Grant, S. Lee, D. Cormier 8.8.12


61:34 minutes (42.27 MB)

Our goal in this--and the next--episode of TTT teachersteachingteachers.org/feed/podcast is to join those who are developing a practical, pedagogical discourse between the heckling and the hype around badges. Our conversations are open and wide-ranging, but we have a few questions that must be answered soon, as the fall semester starts up around the US:

  • Does it make sense to wrap Youth Voices youthvoices.net with badges?
  • How would it work?
  • What impacts might there be on different kinds students?
  • How do I start?

Of course, it's impossible to pull apart the different philosophical, political, and psychological threads that seem to attach themselves to badges, but the educators in this conversation begin to bring some clarity to the questions involved.

In this episode,

There's only so much that this many thoughtful participants can say in an hour, but we hope that there are a few moments while you are listening when you find yourself wanting to enter the conversation. Let us know what you are thinking by posting a comment below. And join us next week as we continue our conversations about badges on TTT with these thoughtful educators:

We'll continue these conversations live at edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wednesday, 15 August at 4PM ET / 1PM PT/ World Times: goo.gl/tERfa. NOTICE THE EARLIER TIME.

We’ll continue to focus on incorporating badges into K-12 education and beyond. There’s so much to say on the topic.

What’s your favorite blog post, video, article, resource about Badges? Please add a couple of links in the comments below. We want to be open and flexile about all of the ways people are talking about the issues involved. And, we are interested in keeping it real. We’ve been developing some ideas around badges for Youth Voices youthvoices.net, and there's more about this on P2PU goo.gl/oKQ1R.

See you on Wednesday.
