I didn't quite expect this, but it seems like everywhere you turn you see "a decade in review" news stories (radio and TV), "the internet" (in general) and blog posts, twitter threads, and Instagram stories (more specifically). I hadn't really thought about doing one of these posts, but what the hay, why not join in? 😜 . The last decade has certainly been eventful. I kicked off the
VConnecting NMC Carol Sharicz Wendy Shapiro Judith Erdman
OK, so here is the final session that I was an onsite buddy for from this summer's NMC summer conference. This session has us join Wendy Shapiro, Judith Erdman, and Carol Sharicz from the UMass Boston Instructional Design Program.
VConnecting at NMC17 Michael Berman & Eden Dahlstrom
What is the NMC? What is its history? Well, see the following virtually connecting session from the NMC summer conference and find out :-)
VConnecting at NMC17 Gardner Campbell & Christina Engelbart
Here is a session with Gardner and Christina. Their session was one of the few that I got to attend and it was really good! The odd thing is that sessions that I wanted to attend were mostly in the same room, and if you didn't get there in time, the door locked behind you (bug or feature?)
VConnecting at NMC17 with Michelle Pacansky-Brock, Jill Leafstedt
Continuing with my virtually connecting documentation activities this week, here is a session with Jill Leafstead and @brocansky. Hey! Got to meet another twitter buddy in person! Woohoo! :-) We were also joined by Eden Dahlstrom the new executive director of the NMC. The thing we learned (too late) was that the Mac defaults to the build-in microphone when turned off, so...the wired microphone
Virtually Connecting at NMC - with Bryan Alexander
A bit of personal documenting this week, posting some videos of virtually connecting sessions from last week's NMC 2017 summer conference. This was my second virtually connecting series with me as one of the onsite buddies, and this was a fun talk with Bryan Alexander. I've been a virtual and an onsite buddy for a while now, and I still haven't gotten the timings right! I guess I have more
NMC Session (last one?) - from last week with Michael Berman
One last session that I was in last week. Fascinating discussion, and definitely some food for thought on membership-based organizations!
NMC session with Maya Georgieva
Another session I was in this past week at the New Media Consortium's Summer conference, in case you missed it. Fun stuff :-)
NMC 2016 virtually connecting with Gardner Campbell
A session I was part of this week, from the New Media Consortium's Summer 2016 conference :-)
It's OCW time!
This past week I also looked at the OCW module of #ioe12. The assigned video was the announcement of the OpenCourseWare project back in 2001 (more than 10 years ago! Who would have thunk it!). Now, reading about the OCW back then, I got the impression that these were going to be courses and not just materials. That OCW would be something like what MOOCs are today rather than a publisher
NMC2012, Day 2 Highlights
Here's a quick recap of yesterday's NMC12 breakout sessions. I decided to skip the morning plenary- 2 hours of 15 minute presentations is a little too much for me, and I can get those on iTunesU anyway ;-). Yesterday's breakout sessions were mostly interesting (and I had quite a few interesting side conversations!) Exploring a Tablet Application for the seminar ClassroomWith Eric Gordon from:
NMC Day 1: session overview
This blog post might be long...but what the heck, a long post every now and again is OK ;-). These are my thoughts on Sessions that I attended. Some were great...and some not so much (they had potential but did not deliver) Digital Badges on Campus: More than Just a GameWith: Mike Soupios, Danielle Mirliss, Thomas McGee from Seton Hall University This was my first session of the day,
NMC12: day 1 highlights part 1
This year the New Media Consortium conference was held in Boston and hosted by MIT, so it was a good opportunity to attend given that it is my own back yard. In this post, I don't plan to recount blow by blow each session, but rather post what seemed most interesting about each. In the welcome keynot was made by Joichi Ito, the MIT media lab director, and the topic was on innovation in open networks
