Well I know some of my readers are feeling pleased that I am busy at the moment – so they can catch up with reading my blog but my apologies to those waiting for me to finish my post series on the use of Web 2.0 with students! I will continue soon!
But I’ve been really busy…..and this week have some online presentation that I have to take care of!
Today I will be doing my Video in E-learning online session for Etools n Tips for the Australian Flexible Framework. Please feel free to join the session in Elluminate – anyone can attend and it is from Wednesday 26 September at 3.30pm to 4.30pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
Don’t stress if you will be asleep when the session is on - I am sure plenty in the session will be joining you! You can always join us our discussions at Etools and Tips for Educators community.
Presentation with NO TITLE on Social Networking for NSW Learnscope
On Friday morning I will be doing an online presentation for NSW Learnscope on social networking.
Lets be honest– these guys are totally screwed! CLARIFICATION! Apologies when I said they are totally screwed, they AREN’T, and never am I. My organisation and friends who know me stress at my high standards of work dedication never worry about me delivering the goods – they work about me overworking and doing too much!
And when I said this what I am really saying is people are relying on me to do a good job - they are giving up their time to listen to me – and I take this serious… as it is on social networking – can you please help me with the following:
I have been so busy with all the work preparing for video in elearning that I haven’t been able to think of a good title for their presentation! To make matters worse I’m not convinced that my twitter social network has been able to help me with a catchy title.
Here are their suggestions so far:
- Putting the ‘We’ into Web!
- Nodes, Knowing and Networking: Building Communities and Connections with Social Software
- “Social networking – the world in your home!”
Now most of the participants in the session are vocational education and training lecturers e.g. trades lectures like automotive, hairdressing, youth at risk. Majority will have just be starting out in their online journey with limited use, if any, social networking themselves. Hello– they may not even know what the term social networking means!
So what are your thoughts on the title?
And if you were going to talk about social networking and why educators should use it for their personal learning and with their students what would you talk about? — being mindful you don’t want to overwhelm them!
