Just watched this incredibly interesting Tedx Talk by Sarah Hill.
The applications for these technologies in education and the promotion of wellbeing are mind-boggling to me!
I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter. Since it’s inception, I think I have ‘tried’ it half a dozen times but never really stuck with it. Increasingly, I have found that conferences for educators are running Twitter feeds live as the presentation proceeds. At first I found this quite odd. I mean – aren’t you supposed to be paying attention to the speaker? Taking notes? But as I have become more used to it, I have reopened my account @katecutts and joined in. What drew me in was the sharing between the silent. Being at one with a group of other people. Being in the moment with them and learning from their observations. It’s like a multiplier of my learning.
Then today I read this blogpost from George Couros: What should a networked educational leader tweet about? It gives a great snapshot of the kinds of learning and professional networking that comes from tweeting.
Love to hear your thoughts on Twitter.
Always wish there was more time in the day to watch Ted Talks. Ken Robinson is a favourite:
Some people are shy about sharing their ideas. They feel like no-one would be interested or that they think everybody already knows it. This video is about this.
Watch this short Prezi from December 2012 about professional development and e-portfolios.
Browse through some of the current Professional Learning Opportunities in your area of interest.
Using ICLT to savour the moments. Amazing what you can do to create a digital record.
