Like most educators I’ve been flat out keeping on top of reports, marking, inspiring and getting through the syllabus.  But when I’m not doing that I’m being a learner myself.  That’s right I’m a student, a learner, and an educator all in one.

This semester instead of completing another subject in my Masters of Educational Technology at Boise State I’m giving casual lecturing a go at my alma mater, the University of Technology in Sydney. It is where I completed my Diploma of Education back in 2005, can you believe it?  ==>

So to my #DLDG2013 students reading this post – thanks for tuning in, this post really is for you.

This is one of the many short stimulus sessions that your lecturers will create over the coming weeks to help you think “outside of the box” in ways that you could use technology in your KLA area to meet your inquiry project (Assignment 2).

So does that give you some ideas? Or do you disagree with something I’ve proposed?

Leave a comment below this post, and we’ll continue the discussion.  If you need to register or sign up for WordPress to do so then go right ahead as we’ll be using it later in the semester.

  1. Great little Tutorial! as a member from Team Resnick from #DLDG2013 i may consider using Evernote for the inquiry Project. I can see this software being very handy for Visual Arts students, especially to share their creativity using different technologies under the one project notebook. Could be great for individual and group assignments/classwork/activities.

  2. This looks great and I look forward to exploring it. It appears aesthetically neat and user-friendly and based on your description seems speedy. Of course any time-saver is a friend not foe to teaching.

  3. Will give it a spin for sure, looks easy. The only thing Im wary of, and its not that Im against better ways of doing things but which platforms will prevail. This is a bit like video wars Beta V’s VHS and Beta was the better system, then again they all gave way for the DVD’s in the end. Im looking at web2 spaces so this is a bit of a curve ball, but I do like the simplicity and speed.
