Video remix

Inspired by #etmooc projects I have had a go at remixing a video for educational purposes.

Professional Ethics is one of the #AAT Level 3 units which I will be teaching over the next term. It is a subject that some of my students have found difficult to get to grips with, its not to do with numbers!…

Learning to walk

The Mozilla Foundation asks What are the skills, competencies and literacies necessary to read, write and participate in the Web – now and in the future?”

Risking taking risks

This week’s #etmooc sessions have led me down the path of diffusion of innovation theories and I have started to collect together some interesting research sources.

Take 1 of digital story Project #2

Time flies…

I can’t believe that we have come to the end of the first session of #etmooc: Connected Learning.  This is a very short post to demonstrate some of the activity over the last fortnight.  For more reflective accounts and conversations, see Google+   Blogs  and Twitter (#etmooc)

slidedeck

I did add my slide to this collaboratively constructed slide-deck, which demonstrates how easy it to collaborate on a Google presentation, even globally.…
