Here’s What I Said On Educational blogging! What Would You Say?

Commenters on my What Are Your Thoughts on Educational Blogging? post asked if I would share the essence of my presentation from Alec Couros‘ s EC&I 831: Social Media & Open Education course — so as promised here it is! You can watch an Elluminate recording of the session here. Pre-presentation Preparation One of the best aspects of Alec’s course is that participants post reflections on their blogs.  Wouldn’t that be nice if you could research and interact with participants…

A Year Later And Are We Using Different Tools To Connect To Our PLNs?

A Year Later And Are We Using Different Tools To Connect To Our PLNs?

One year ago I asked my network to complete a survey on Personal Learning Network. The survey was used in a series of presentations and to build my PLN Yourself website. Being a year later I’m wondering how much has changes?  Are we using different tools to connect?  Are the tools we would recommend to new people different? Can you help in the following ways: Can you please complete my new Personal Learning Networks Survey? There are only 2 questions…

What Are Your Thoughts on Educational Blogging?

I’m doing a presentation next week for Alec Couros‘ s EC&I 831: Social Media & Open Education course and as part of it I’ve need to organise some required reading one week prior to the presentation. I’ve been asked to focus on educational blogging and building personal learning networks so I’m hoping you can help as I want to: Demonstrate how conversations in blog comments provides greater knowledge gain for all involved, because each individual sees a different perspective of…

Here’s My Blogging Story! What’s Yours?

Here’s My Blogging Story! What’s Yours?

Well I’m a bit late  to help John Connell with his session at BBC’s Glasgow HQ! But I like the blogging questions and think others would be intrigued by my answers. 1.  How did you get into blogging? I’m sure lots of people that are very glad I’m blogger would be totally surprised by the fact that initially I really struggled with the concept of blogging — Why anyone would blog and why others read their blogs? It took almost…

Twitter (and Humans) Don’t Always Get It Correct!

Twitter (and Humans) Don’t Always Get It Correct!

Credit where credit is due is important. Yes the “Twitter Handbook for Teachers” is an excellent resource. While it is lovely for people on twitter to regularly thank me for the resources I create (and to get all the retweets of thanks) — I DID NOT write Twitter Handbook for Teachers.  But I can understand why people think I did. It was written by Tomaz Lasic (@lasic) who used the quote from my PLN Yourself wiki on the front page…

Can Addictions Scare Readers?

Can Addictions Scare Readers?

Can be only one response to this tweet! Readers should answer it 😎 Personally I find it hard to believe for two main reasons: a) I’m a chocolate addict – I think we need a clarification of addiction! b) That it could be very scary! Your thoughts: Is Ashley Proud right? Does it make me scary? And can an addition scare readers? Perhaps truth – he’s a chocolate hater? Disclaimer: Sue Waters is a serious blogger And if you’re enjoying…

The Great USA Coca Cola and Chocolate Scandal!

The Great USA Coca Cola and Chocolate Scandal!

It’s my last day in USA and I’m taking home so many lovely memories of USA…..except for Coca Cola and Cadbury chocolate. IMHO it is a scandal! The Taste of American Coca Cola and Chocolate Being well known for my Coca Cola and chocolate love (it’s what I’m holding in my avatar) I feel a need to expose this scandal. Worse still that I have to confess I’ve been drinking Pepsi and feeling physically sick from the memory of eating…

Connecting at NECC!

Connecting at NECC!

Did I ever imagine that one day I would be sitting at a desk in USA writing a blog post?  NOPE! Yet, according to Google Maps, I’m currently about 14, 816 miles from my home (Perth, Western Australia).  Fortunately I didn’t follow Google Maps directions and kayak across Pacific Ocean from Australia through Japan to get here! Purpose of my trip was to attend NECC 2009 (one of the World’s largest conferences for Ed Tech professionals).  This year over 18,000…

Baiting the Digital Hook to Build A Professional Learning Community!

Last week I was invited to present on PLNs (personal learning networks) as part of Getting Connected 09 for The Australian Flexible Learning Frameworks. As the conference targeted the VET sector I decided to take a different PLN approach and share how social networking tools can create communities of professionals, and students, that help each other. Skills level of participants Participants were surveyed near the start of the session to help guide how little/much information on each aspect need to…

Need WordPress MU Support? Here’s Where You’ll Find it!

In case you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to for the past few months, and why I’ve had less time than usual, I can now explain. Although maybe not everyone has noticed this less time? Working with WordPress MU Besides all my usual Edublogs responsibilities I’ve also been working for Incsub developing WordPress MU (WordPress Multiuser and also known as WPMU) support material (some is still a work in progress). While installing and managing your own single install WordPress…
