  • @HENNAWP U can export the map as an image & embed it / link to it, u can also link to the Cmap file & allow others to download it #checet #
  • “Information” is fragmented, “knowledge” is integrated. Concept mapping helps to turn information into knowledge #checet #
  • @sam_a19 initially it would take some time but thereafter it only requires refinement #checet #
  • @AatikaValentyn The Cmap file can be emailed. It only needs the software to be installed on the machine you use to open the file #checet #
  • Using concept maps to articulate & externalise conceptual understanding can also improve essay writing #checet #
  • Here is the presentation i gave this morning on PLEs http://t.co/TBDrR8ke #checet #
  • @KarienJooste you can embed a twitter feed (from a person, hashtag, or search) into a wiki #checet #
  • David Gelernter: Time to start taking the Internet seriously http://t.co/lDR62M5K. Great piece that changed my thinking #checet #
  • @dgachago17 “getting the story out there” also a process, no emphasis on product. If product is “poor”, has learning happened? #checet #
  • @dgachago17 the “purpose is to give students a voice”…isn’t that a process…the “giving” of the voice? #checet #
  • @IvalaEunice The devices are mobile, and because it’s wireless the students can respond from anywhere? #checet #
  • @waldoweimers Switch to pencil & paper. It’ll save on the “battery” concern, but cost you time #checet #
  • @jpbosman talks about using cellphones & wireless for audience response systems, instead of clickers which are expensive #checet #
  • @AatikaValentyn U can argue that digital literacy is as NB as reading & writing. And, they are an aspect of digital communication #checet #

  • @dgachago17 I think that “process” is way more valuable than “product” 🙂 #checet #
  • @JonathanMarks3 “Learning the technology” should be an essential component of learning in a connected society #checet #
  • Vodcasting requires students to draw on / develop multiple skillsets that are not necessarily a formal part of the curriculum #checet #
  • @Phudsical backchannels are easier if you have an assistant who is familiar with the course to manage the background conversation #checet #
  • @waldoweimers Twitter constrains you by limiting the message to 140 characters. So, shorter, more concise expressions than blogging #checet #
  • @drekpo Thank you, hopefully today will also be useful 🙂 #
  • Students using vodcasts at Pollsmoor Prison to document their fieldwork skills and submit for assessment in Social Work degree #checet #
  • Neal Henderson talks about his students using video podcasts: visual experience / communication adds value to the assessment #checet #
  • RT @NicSpaull: When I read CS Lewis quotes I imagine him sitting in an old armchair smiling, and chuckling lightly just before he says it… #

    • three forces at play when it comes to education and social media
    • first is a lack of force
    • second is the force of fear
    • third force is that of more and more educators who are embracing social media and advocating its use on- and off-campus – for student learning and for teacher professional development alike
    • a lot of potential with Google+: better student collaboration through Circles, opportunities for blended learning (a combination of offline and online instruction) with Hangouts, project research with Sparks, and easier school public relations with targeted photo-sharing, updates, and messaging
    • granular level of privacy afforded by Google+ that is the key to making this a successful tool for schools
    • while Twitter has been embraced by many educators – for both professional development and for back-channeling in the classroom – there’s still that “always public” element of Twitter that makes many nervous
    • sharing online isn’t simply about weighing privacy concerns; it’s also about sharing with the right people
    • many teachers are already talking about the possibility of not just face-to-face video conversation but the potential for integration of whiteboards, screen-sharing, Google Docs, and other collaborative tools

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-02-15

  • @ryantracey Agreed. The process, rather than the certificate, should be emphasised #
  • RT @wesleylynch: Video comparing iphone and nexus – http://ow.ly/17iBb. Can’t imagine how the iPhone will survive, Android is already better #

  • Butcher: the curricular framework must drive development of OER – content comes after learning #OCW #
  • Neil Butcher from OERAfrica: OER can’t work without institutional support #OCW #
  • Why is copyright in OER even an issue? Copyright applies equally to OER and non-OER #OCW #
  • If you think of a degree as a learning experience, rather than a certificate, formal accreditation is less important. See P2PU #OCW #
