Slow Motion

Introduction I have tried to have a paperless office since my move to Australia in 2002. However ... I do have a paper archive that I brought with me to Australia. I keep finding hidden treasures in that archive. This post celebrates a 1939 paper written by Roy Priebe and William Burton. I found the paper in 1987 whilst researching my book Using Video in Sport. It was the first paper I could find that looked at the use of slow motion pictures. It was titled 'The Slow-Motion Picture As A Coaching Device'. I had found a reference to an earlier study of the...

Curation, Devices and Analytics

Connectivism works for me. I have a small number of aggregation tools that help me stay connected each day. These tools link me to remarkably creative and insightful people. Whilst on the road in England this week I have been: Trying to follow a Digital Curation open course on Curatr. This is a Vimeo introduction to the platform. Thinking about Jane Hart's ideas about the role of Workplace Learnng Advisor and the benefits of web residency. Reflecting on my first attempt to facilitate a bring your own device workshop and luxuriating in the approach taken at BYOD4L. Admiring the way information about the Sports Analytics Summit...

Personal Learning and Cooperation

I have missed (at least) two cMOOCs in the last month. I enjoyed reading Brian Kelly's discussion of his assignment for the Hyperlinked Library MOOC. Participants in the course were asked to produce an Online Professional Learning Network (OPLN) that comprised: A Goals Statement A Defined Scope A Resource Network A Network Maintenance Plan Brian, a newly-appointed Innovation Advocate at Cetis at the University of Bolton, provides his responses to these four requirements. I thought it was a very clear response to the course requirement. I liked his use of Coggle to visualise his OPLN an to provide an interactive example of a Coggle. A post by Helen...

Sharing Openly

This week's ePortfolio Forum in Canberra has prompted me to think about sharing openly personal stories about learning. A post by Helen Blunden (shared with me by Darrell Cobner) encouraged me to think about What's the Point of Sharing, Really? Helen wrote about "one of the lowest weeks" she had at work: I left permanent work some years ago as I was tired of the constant corporate restructures which I find unproductive and mentally draining.  I figured that if I undertook fixed term contracts, I would not be involved in the internal politicking and the constant changes. Instead, I would be...

ET al

I am fascinated by collective nouns. I like the idea of: a congregation of alligators; a shrewdness of apes; a blush of boys; a rabble of butterflies; a fling of dunlins;  and a convocation of eagles. I do get confused about these nouns, however. Goldfinches charm, hippopotamuses bloat and jays scold. There is a fluther of jellyfish and an exaltation of larks. I am delighted that owls meet in a parliament. I have been wondering whether there is a collective noun for massive open online courses. At present, given the diversity and availability of these courses, perhaps there is a flourishing...

Facilitating Learning

My Paper.Li aggregator brought me a link to a Jane Hart post this morning. In her discussion of collaborative learning, Jane describes an approach in which: the content is well-integrated within the community, and in fact co-created by the community, and where the emphasis is placed much more on the interactions, knowledge sharing and conversations of the participants – than on the content per se. Jane has been working with Harold Jarche to develop this approach in their online workshops. She identifies ten success factors in supporting online learning: INGREDIENTS 1   Someone who wants both to share expertise but is interested in hearing...

Edging to Open Learning in Open Spaces

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Ballarat to discuss Edgeless Challenges and Opportunities. I have been thinking a great deal about learning spaces and the function (rather than the form) of the university of late. In part these thoughts have been stimulated by the University of Canberra's development of teaching and learning commons. This week I have been overwhelmed by the number of connections I am finding in relation to open learning and sharing. Some of these connections include: George Siemens' post (10 December) about Connections, Clouds, Things & Analytics in which he observes that: many universities have an educational...

Social Media Sharing

I have been posting some #worldcup updates to Twitter this week. In passing I have accessed a number of links to social media resources through the serendipity of being online at just the right time. A read of Danny Brown's 52 Cool facts About Social Media started my journey. I delighted in finding these resources to grow my awareness of social media (driven partly by research for a paper on cloud computing and coaching). Aggregations of Social Media Links and Guides Jane Hart shared a great introductory guide to Social Media this week. I am constantly in awe of her awareness of...
