Riding the Wave – Part 5

  1. There were some really great other presentations in day 2 of MoodleMoot AU 2012 as well. Some notes and tweets below…

    Francis Kneebone gave a thought provoking presentation that looked at a framework for developing educators in educational technology and some of the questions he raised I could definitely relate to. The third tweet below I could definitely resonate with as academics often ask for things the be done or integrated but they have no understanding of what it takes to get and develop such a resource or activity. It’s not expected that they do most of the time but how can we educate them enough so that they understand what is possible and what are reasonable expectations of technology within their context?

    @FrancisKneebone asking some provocative questions about what educators know about technology? Fun 😉 #mootau12
  4. anitsirk17
    Do educators understand browsers, HTML, CSS, and the tech stuff behind what they use or ask for? #mootau12
  5. anitsirk17
    The framework so far: synchronous delivery, instructional design (narrative, sequencing), eAssessment, web standards, systems… #mootau12
  6. anitsirk17
    Create a training space, create sandbox, experience course as students, hand over responsibility, do a skills audit and survey… #mootau12
  7. This was a great presentation that looked at how Moodle caters for and keeps up with current global trends and its fantastic to see that it does. Moodle is not a complete package in and of itself but as Martin so often reiterates, it is a platform, a foundation in which to build further learning opportunities and activities. Many extra learning materials and resources can be integrated and implemented with Moodle and that’s what keeps it up with global trends…. That and the community behind it I believe.

    Addressing global trends in education… Can it be done in Moodle? #mootau12 what does the Horizon report mean for Moodle?

    Global trend 3: cloud computing vs Moodle = forced on us by eliminating a course specific files area? #mootau12

    #mootau12 “Give co-ownership of your Moodle course…its a class space, not just a teacher space.” Q from @mikecogh

    Global trend 5: multiliteracies vs Moodle =involves learning the tools but also thinking critically about why you are using tools #mootau12
  12. anitsirk17
    Global trend 6: informal learning vs Moodle = can informal learning occur inside an LMS? yes I believe so #mootau12
  13. Jenni Parker from Murdoch University was dynamic and different in her approach to presenting and I found it both refreshing and engaging. She presented her Masters work and her portal of information presented was very interesting and effectively designed, I will definitely check it out further.

    Jenni explains the importance of using a CoI approach > students get it, appreciate it and engage > wow #mootau12
  19. Finally, I went to a presentation on Collaborate and I have only just recently had a student experience of this tool and found it very user-friendly and full of great tools. I definitely think it would be a valuable and effectively synchronous web tool to use in our institute.
