Week 4 and I Chat With John Boyer

Hello everyone and welcome to Week 4.

I had a great conversation with our first guest speaker, John Boyer, this morning via Google Hangouts. You can watch the recording of the session here:

Here is the usual list of links that I include for your reference:

Don’t forget to list your blog so that others can read what you have to say. You can add your blog to the list here – https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1gdFkXqZgNLpD-2YCNb-wrgkcbly8FUsfGUPVzJgvQD4/viewform

Ryan Banow created that great Google Hangouts video, but Google seems to have made changes to the service again. We will try to get another one made in the coming weeks.

There have been some face-to-face meetings happening or are planned to happen at various institutions for those in this course. If you are meeting up with others in this class in formal or informal ways, please let me know.

If you have any feedback about the course thus far, I would love to hear from you by email Twitter, Facebook or Google.

Next week is reading week at the University of Saskatchewan so there will be no new content covered for this course, not will I be sending out my weekly email on Monday. Have a great week off.

    […] The journey of teaching is one of evolution. Shifts in content, growth in expectations of student engagement and tranformations of technology including the arrivals of “new” technologies such as power point and twitter (each new at one point int time as John Boyer noted in his Intro to Learning Technologies (#ILT) talk).
