Reflection and Technology

March 30, 2009

In my PhD research, I interviewed a number of people in Higher Education who remarked that students often only reflect before assessment etc. The students see themselves as rarely having the time to reflect. They dont take the time to reflect. They may not have the skills to reflect, the vocabulary to reflect or a process of reflection. When they write ...

Guardian Article Twitter In History Out

March 30, 2009

I just read this and was saddened to see such shallow thinking. Why any particular technology should be singled out at all is one thing. Why adopt it as a replacement for understanding culture is dreadful. This is further compounded in a digital context because understanding and working with those from other cultures becomes all the more significant in ...

Death of eportfolios?

March 06, 2009

I think so. My consultancy company has been developing interactive professional development frameworks for different UK universities. These combine the ability to input data against criteria with a constant micro and macro view. We believe that inputting against the framework is much more focused. This is a new innvovation we've just been delivering to a few of our recent clients. We did ...

People just record their voice through the phone. Others can get automatic SMS messages as soon as the voice message ...

Very First Impressions

May 30, 2007

I think this software is good for allowing a group to convene over a topic or issue of shared interest. However, I don't think it really feels good for a replacement VLE. That's because each page or person is generating their own forum and discussion -we digress! Fine if we say that a group may like to work cooperatlvely ...

Management of Widgets

May 30, 2007

Hi, I went to try and manage my widgets but found that won't work. I also tried to pull in a feed into my blog but it wouldn't accept or show the changes - unless there's a delay on these things for updating. Am I doing something wrong? I can do all these things and more (mobile blogging etc) ...

Start Page Technologies

May 29, 2007

Another 2.0 format I found attractive was Start Page technologies. There is a whole pile of these available free online and again they allow you to pull in different things and to share parts of a site that may be written to by anyone. Alternatively you can make it read-only or restrict co-editing to a named few. Great for ...

Informal Learning Projects

May 14, 2007

There is a danger of social networking technologies producing an audience with no event. Despite the considerable heat around user generated content, social networking, podcasting, tagging and all the rest of it this can soon turn into a lot of people looking at each other. Alternatively, to try and use a different metaphor, this can result in a lot ...
