Presentations from CSUED 2012

I was lucky to present no less than 4 times in various forms at our internal Teaching and Learning conference – CSUED 2012. With so many great sessions I don’t think I over presented – just added a dash of mobile and a bit of “how to” to the mix.

I’ve posted most of presentations up online now so I thought I’d collate them here.

How To Use Mobile Technology for Engaging & Successful Learning & Teaching

Taking a look at mobile technology affordances and how they can be integrated into teaching and learning practice with the aim of promoting a conversation rather than being prescriptive.

mLearn: Lessons Through Exploration

An overview of the progress of the mLearn project, what we have learnt and what we plan to do next.

Understanding Mobile Technology

A video from the Digital Theatre on a few of the affordances of mobile technology.

Plenary: Higher Education for a digital age: Using social media to enhance learning and teaching

The last presentation was as part of plenary on Social Media. I had a couple of slides but more as cues. The points I bought up were:

  • Social media provides the ability to extend the learning space outside the classroom, but it can also to create a classroom for distance and online learners. It has the ability to create new spaces for actions and outcomes – sharing, discussion, collaboration, reflection.
  • Using social media via mobile technology allows for contribution in context.
  • Social media provides a platform to create a Personal Learning Network.
  • Social media allows us to actually construct a social network. Usually social networks in real life are based around location and temporal proximity – and not interest, passion, like-mindedness. Social media allows us to construct our own networks, to choose who we let in, follow and interact with.
  • My biggest issue was who owns what? As social networks become publicly listed who owns what, and at what cost becomes increasingly important.

So that’s it! For now…. I have 2 more presentations to work on – one for the HTML5 Symposium and the other for Ascilite 2012!
