Open Education

with 2 comments

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.

I talk about Academic Earth post on Never Mind the Pedagogy, and the significance of such resources.

Episode 15 Radio & community

leave a comment »

Show notes: A quick episode talking about the sense of community people can get with radio, and the increase listening figures due in part, I believe, to the immediacy afforded to listeners by the use of technology to participate in that community.

Episode 14 Backchannel or Badchannel?

leave a comment »

Show notes: I talk about what the backchannel is and how it is increasingly used at conference presentations, and how it isn’t always useful, something I term the “badchannel”.

I’ve blogged about the usefulness and potential applications of backchannel and backchanneling in Never Mind the Pedagogy and Squire Morley (wp).

Episode 13 Copysafe music and photos

leave a comment »

Show notes: I talk about how to access photos and music that you can use safely without infringing copyright.

I’ve written about stock photos in my Squire Morley (wp) blog

For music you need to be looking at podsafe sites, a couple being:

  1. MusicAlley from the Mevio stable
  2. PodsafeAudio

I also came across this video from Penn State that shows the implications for students in their coursework using appropriate material.

Episode 12 The Human Filter

leave a comment »

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.
