Questions I’ll bring to #etmooc

Since I’ve participated before in connectivist MOOCs, the start of #etmooc has me thinking about why I’ve come back. Sure, I’m interested in the content of the course. The topics this course will explore come up daily in my work as an instructional coach, so I think this course will help me stay current on important, emerging themes in educational technology.…

A real life example of digital story in my office

Today I had a young lady come into my office who was feeling very upset over a test mark. This is a student who four years ago would have probably used self harm to deal with her negative emotions.

Fear, Technology, and Discernment

2015 in Review

wow. look at that.

Yesterday, Coursera announced another steaming option, this time watching their contents on Apple TV.  This reminded me of the 1980s-1990s Annenberg-funded World of Chemistry. In high school, I loved World of Chemistry.

Driving Reuse by Perception Software

About this webinar

There are many benefits of parts reuse in the supply chain such as shortened development cycles and getting leverage with vendors because of increased volumes. One of the big hindrances to enabling reuse is getting the right people the right data at the right time and Cisco’s Greg Twiss (Director of Engineering Supply Chain and top 10% of patent holders) realized this big gap and architected Intelligent Search into the culture of Cisco for discovering parts/BoM related information.…
