Riding the Wave – Part 2

  1. These a some of my thoughts and notes, as well as the Tweets of myself and others, on the other presentations delivered on day 1 of MoodleMoot AU 2012. The nTweets may be in reverse chronological order but I hope you get much from these notes.

    Pause for reflection, look at activity settings and think about why they are there, come up with creative ways to use them. #mootau12
  3. This point above is a good one to consider. There is so much in the settings pages of Moodle resources and activities and academics get overwhelmed but I like the idea of looking at how they can be used.

    OUblog gets around core blog problem and loss of journal tool @moodlechick #mootau12 but understand you prefer core moodle
  5. madradish
    I love the idea of training people in a sneaky ‘Trojan horse’ fashion so they don’t realise what they are picking up #mootau12
  6. madradish
    Using pre-workshop activities on Moodle to get people thinking and let the trainers know what attitudes to expect. This is gold! #mootau12
  7. I missed this presentation but it sounded very good.
  8. Eellcie
    Choice activity good way to lead into generalizations & peer interactions; then lead into forum ie process what you think first ! #mootau12
  9. Eellcie
    The trick is to get them to express themselves before collaborating with peers says lindy Klein @ #mootau12
  10. 1nbm
    ELOD = Engaging Learners in Online Discussion. The concept will catch on, but not sure about the acronym. #mootau12
  11. gibbisons
    Let’s position FreeMoodle in our minds as the free place to find courses – like YouTube is the place we go for movies #mootau12
  12. madradish
    Stuart Mealor points out that some Moodlers are just generally helpful. I agree, I’ve met so many here already! #mootau12
  13. And as you will see below, the Equella and Moodle 2.3 session was a huge hit. I definitely believe there is a lot of value in Equella as a repository but my questions now are, what is the benefit in using Equella when the other plugin repositories and awesome new file dragging and dropping systems in Moodle make it so much easier to upload files?
  14. shannonej
    Moodle is for managing learning, equella is for managing the data in repositories – a marriage of relevance #mootau12
  15. What makes me assume that equella & moodle 2.3integration is very popular? yfrog.com/o06jgtdj #mootau12
  16. Equella and Moodle in bed together? Is this the Love Story? youtube.com/watch?v=hPAMbT… #mootau12 pic.twitter.com/gZrRgHfS
  17. Fiona and Lyn from my institution Macquarie Univeristy gave a great presentation on Communities of Inquiry in our instance of Moodle, which we call iLearn. Great presentation ladies!

    We are looking at using synchronous chat, audio and video – students need to interact to build sense of community #mootau12
  20. madradish
    That talk by Fiona and Lyn from Mac Uni was just fantastic. Had me jotting not just notes but ideas for things we’ll need at work #mootau12
  21. And some other great tweets from the day….
  22. NetSpot
    Guess how many countries are represented @ #mootau12?#mootau12 has delegates from 14 countries. To name but a few: South Africa, Fiji, Japan
  23. gibbisons
    #mootau12 if using a quiz activity with conditional activities and letting students change their option use ‘last attempt’ score
  24. kerryjcom
    Groups (5 in this case) to build community construct – asked to choose group, create contract, negotiate content -sounds like PBL! #mootau12
  25. kerryjcom
    Really like emphasis on asking students to back up opinion with research – I’d want them to find research pro and con #mootau12
  26. kerryjcom
    In order to support community and feel like they’re in it together, students need to feel challenged intellectually #mootau12
  27. gibbisons
    #mootau12 Conditional activities – using a quiz score to path people rather than grade them
  28. myench
    #mootau12 productive failure – students collaborate more, think more deeply when they have failed at a task. how to keep them motivated tho?
  29. Bec_Spicer
    Problem based learning design contains too much support and doesn’t result in skills/knowledge transfer #mootau12
  30. flairandsquare
    Innovative learning design in Moodle. Eamon Vale showing how simple things should be. Avoiding too much structure in Moodle. #mootau12
  31. tafe_swsi_itel
    Can skills and knowledge be learnt and transferred If you give too much support and structure to a persons learning. #mootau12
  32. Missed this presentation too but delivering eLearning to inmates in detention centres and jail is great!
  33. gibbisons
    #mootau12 e-Readers have course material, library resources & can be taken to cells BUT no 3G, Wifi, SD card slot OR removable batteries
  34. edugnome
    Speaker refuting notion of “the medium is the message.” I think he misunderstands. It’s not focused on technology, but how we interact.
  35. Bec_Spicer
    #mootau12 Full house listing to Eamon Vale talk about effective Moodle based learning design
  36. Eellcie
    Mp3 Skype recorder > free tool for windows and $20 for Mac users – handy educational tool for evidence collection #mootau12
