Show notes: I talk about PLEs and informal learning; how they are set to become significant elements for individual development and that of society.
Show Notes: Open education and open educational resources (OER) are an area of great interest to me. I’m dedicated to finding useful material and examples and sharing them more widely to allow others to access learning on their own terms.
Show notes: I talk about how to access photos and music that you can use safely without infringing copyright.
For music you need to be looking at podsafe sites, a couple being:
I also came across this video from Penn State that shows the implications for students in their coursework using appropriate material.
Show Notes: In episode 9 I talked about information overload or inefficient filtering. Here I talk about the human filter and how individuals and networks can add value more widely by quickly accessing material and repackaging it to be easily accessible to others. I take myself as an example.
Show notes: Technology is making it easy to re-purpose all available content, especially audio and video. This is becoming an increasingly appealing approach for younger generations. Are existing copyright laws still appropriate? Or are we accidentally criminalising a new generation? I’d suggest watching Lawrence (Larry) Lessig’s TED video; it’s just under 20 minutes long.
Show Notes: A phrase often overused is “information overload”, but is this really the problem? Well the amount of information in this world isn’t going to be reducing anytime soon, so we’re going to need a more efficient means of accessing the stuff that’s interesting and significant to us.
Show Notes: We’re all pretty much carrying carmeras around with us constantly now, possibly on our phones. I’d advise taking as many pictures as you can – it’s a quick and easy way of creating content and developing a library of supporting images to illustrate your points.
Potentially the main innovation with cameras on phones is now the ability to stream video live. It might not be the best quality, but it serves a purpose. Two services that I use are Qik and Flixwagon. I was an alpha tester for Qik and that software is now being shipped on all new Nokia models. It mean that content can be quickly online. (I’m experimenting with squirting live video out to a blog at the moment.)
Searching video might be difficult at the moment, but it’s going to get a lot easier as this from Adobe(TM) shows.
