Pondering what to learn next 🤔

You looked better on MySpace - aka pointing out the obvious

I was reading a recent article on First Monday the other day (abstract and link bellow) that seems to point out the obvious. In my early days on the internet in the late 90s I spent a lot of time on IRC chat rooms, Yahoo chat rooms, meeting people on ICQ and other related services. It was pretty cool to meet people from other countries and get to talk to them about their daily lives. Many times we

Instructional Fail

Well here's some near-the-end-of-the-month humor for you.One of the things that I remember doing in my Introduction to Instructional Design class was looking at products (mostly toys) and without instructions figuring out what they do, and designing instruction for them. We would design instruction that would let the parent know in simple terms how to operate the toy so that they could show their kid.This

Kirkpatrick's 4 levels of Evaluation - the overview

Not much to say today. I just came across this presentation which looked rather interesting. Since I am taking a course this fall that deals with Kirkpatrick and his levels, I thought I should post this presentation on the topic that looked rather interesting.

Proving a negative

I had a chuckle when I read this comic strip the other day.It brought back memories of my undergraduate mathematical logic class. The weird thing was that most things that I found logical seemed to not be valid mathematic proofs of logic.Oh well...

On Language Death

I posted this on my Google shared items about a month ago, but I found it so powerful that it deserves a separate posting here as well.I was reading this blog post about a researcher that was recording the language of a people. This language is going the way of the dodo so the researcher wanted to preserve it.In showing the natives what he intends to do, and giving them examples of languages no longer

Don't discount the old school tech just yet...

I came across this article (or blog post?) from a fellow Greek a while back.The topic is "Why Tablet PCs are better". Of course the natural questions is: better than what?When it comes to instructional technology I think that a lot of people go for what's new and shiny and forget that there is existing (or old school as I like to call it) technology that does the job right, and work without electricity!

The Disaggregation of Higher Education

I came across this presentation a while back, but I did not have the opportunity until recently to go through it. It's a great presentation and I wish that they also had the audio of the presentation to go with it because it seems like a great topic.I particularly liked slides 100 to 109 where institutions of higher education are likened to the recording instutry ;-) I also liked slide 95 with the

Someone has a case of the Mondays!

Well OK, not really. I don't know if this story transpired on a Monday - it was just a catchy title :-)Anyway, I had heard of this story about a student accused of copyright infringement and possibly academic dishonesty for posting his own code online! I did not know much of the story until I read the whole story on Inside Higher Ed. If you haven't seen it, go have a quick read - it IS pretty ridiculous.Basically

Map of Social Networks

One of the "in" things today is to try to use social networks for everything including marketing, advertising, social mobilization and yes even teaching. I came across this graphic a while back showing which social networks are prevalent in which countries.This is quite interesting, but it only gives you which networks are most popular based on goodle trends and alexa at one point in time. Don't get
