Bloggers Who Build Communities Award

bloggerswhocreatecommunityaward.jpgMichele Martin from The Bamboo Blog presented me with the Bloggers Who Create Community Award! The purpose of this award is to show gratitude to bloggers whose focus is on building communities.

Here is what Michele had to say:

Sue Waters of Mobile Technology in TAFE is one of the most incredibly helpful bloggers around. Not only does she build community through her own blog, she spends seemingly unlimited amounts of time surfing the web to assist others, making masterful use of her co-mments account to follow conversations and dispense helpful advice.

Thank you Michele! I’m honored by this, as community building is a key to achieving my goal of helping others. I just wish that I had been given the opportunity to present the award to you on behalf of the community members from the 31 Day Project and Better Blog community because you were responsible for bringing us all together — enabling the communities to connect, share, grow, collaborate and learn together! We all OWE YOU so much!

With the honor comes some responsibility–to pass it along to three other bloggers. Not a responsibility to be taken lightly; which is why it has taken me 10 days to write this post. Everything I do– the help, assistance and mentoring is paying back the time others make for me. Would love to give the award to so many people, for so many different reasons, but I know my three picks for Bloggers Who Build Community will pay this award forward and the number of bloggers awarded for building communities will grow!

So here are my three picks for Bloggers Who Build Community:

Darren Draper, Drape’s Take

Lets be honest — giving Darren an award, with any type of rule attached, is a frightening thought because he is well known for changing rules and is incredible funny. But those who know him well would agree he totally deserve this award for all his edublogger community support and his work with the Global Open Professional Development – Social Software in the Classroom. I am humbled by Darren’s incredible diplomatic skills in the global community.

Kathryn Greenhill, Librarians Matters

Kathryn is such an amazing and inspirational person; who works incredibly hard supporting and encouraging people in the online community and in our local blogging community here in Perth. I have gained and learnt so much from her. While she is well known for her blog and Second Life — check out the great work she did this year for the 23 Things Project for Murdoch University Library.

Judy O’Connell, Hey Jude

What can one say about Judy? Although I have never meet her; I think she may be a kindred spirit! Cheeky, funny, good at leading me astray (in a good way) and always making time to encourage others in her community. So many people, from some many places in the World, have gained so much from Judy. If you haven’t checked out her Web 2.0 Notes — do so!


To me, all three of these bloggers do great things within their community, encouraging comments and making themselves accessible to their readers. They’re great role models and mentors for me.

Please help me congratulate the winners by visiting their websites and sending a note of congratulations and encouragement to each.

Edublog Awards—and the Winners Are!

I would like to congratulate all winners of the Edublog Awards 2007 and Student 2.0 for receiving the Convener’s Award. While this blog didn’t win in it’s categories, being a finalist for three different Edublog Award categories is reward enough, especially when you realise I have only been blogging 8 months. Thanks to all the people who nominated and voted for this blog.

The Award Ceremony

2096669599_f3bd033c0b_m.jpgThe Award Ceremony held at Joykadia in Second Life was incredible as it was my first time experiencing a large gathering. Thankfully all my playing in SL over the past few months meant I managed okay, even if I did have an “out of body” experience where I went for a look around without my avatar and then realised that getting back to my body was not as easy as I thought. Photo by Betchaboy.

Unfortunately so many people in a small area with everyone’s avatars names floating above their heads was overwhelming — I did get a headache!!! And to make matters worse, now that I look at the Flickr photos people have taken, I now realise that I could have turned off the names!!!!!! @#*@ Let’s hope Jo Kay does not take away “my Second Life License”. Looks like my punishment will have to be more time hanging out with friends in SL.


I should point out that it is great our readers support us! Telling my hubby, family and students, about the Awards went well until asked where the Award Ceremony was going to be held — after which there was much laughter at the idea of it being held in Second Life. Us bloggers are soooooo misunderstood by those close to us!

While I did not worry too much about my clothes I have to give full marks to Kathryn for creating a new Avatar for her blog for the Awards — thankfully she IM me or I wouldn’t have realised it was her.

Check Out The Finalists

Make sure you take the time to check out both the Winners and the Finalists of the Edublog awards because there are great blogs and resources worth reading.

I already subscribed to many of the finalists, and it is impossible to showcase all the great work done by all of them, however here are a few of the gems I have gained from some of the “new-to-me’ blogs I have found as a result of the awards:


Blogging can be very lonely if you feel what you are saying is not being heard. Thanks to all my readers who take the time to read my posts and for letting me know that what I write makes a difference in your life.

If you have checked out the Finalists, please let me know what gems you gained.

Also I am always on the lookout for new blogs to read, so please feel free to recommend ones you think I would like.

The Edublogs Awards Finalists Announced…Your Opportunity To Discover New Educational Blogs and Resources

WOW…I am very blown away honoured to learn that Mobile Technology in TAFE blog is a finalist in the 2007 Edublog Awards in three separate categories: Best Individual Blog; Best New Blog and Best Ed Tech Support blog. Thanks to my readers for nominating my blog for the awards.

The winners will be announced at the Award ceremony which will be held in Second Life on Saturday December 8. In the meantime you can vote for your favourite finalists here by clicking on the category title.


For those new to the Edublog Awards — it is a community based incentive run on a voluntary basis. The awards were originally set up 4 years ago in response to community concerns relating to how schools, districts and educational institutions were blocking access of learners and teachers blog sites for educational purposes. Unfortunately 4 years later we are still faced with the same issues.

The purpose of the Edublog awards is promote and demonstrate the educational values of these social softwares. While it is really nice to be nominated we need to remember the best aspects of the awards is it creates a fabulous resource for educators to use for ideas on how social software is used in different contexts, with a range of different learners; which means we are introduced to new sites that we might not have found if not for the awards process.

So I strongly recommend that you take the time to visit the web sites of the Edublogs Award Finalists and grab this opportunity to add some excellent educational blogs to your feed reader.

Congratulations to all of the nominees in each category but a specific hooooray to:

What Are The Edublogs Awards And Why Should We Get Involved!

nominationsWith my proliferation of web sites it is easy to understand why most forget that I am relatively a newbie in terms of the educational use of Web 2.0 technologies. Putting it in context last year was the first time I had heard about the Edublog Awards, and that was after the event. This year I now know what the Edublog Awards 2007 and can be part of the nomination process.

I know that many of my readers are in similar position to myself, being new to the educational use of these technologies, so I decided to provide an overview of the Edublog Awards so we can all be part of the process.

Would love to hear your suggestions for sites we should nominate for some of categories — I love checking out new resources.

Farewell, CogDog. We know you’ll be back. Though you’re a dog you don’t scare us at all!

Alan LevineIt is official Alan Levine has left our shores and arrived safely back home in America. After an amazing 18 day “whirl-wind” Australian Cross Country Tour where he was in a different city almost every night I am left wondering, after enjoying reading his daily adventures – does this mean there will be a vaccuum in my life? No more CogDogRoo blog posts? 🙁

I was fortunate to attend Alan’s presentations on Melbourne and Perth; plus lucky to spend some time with him. Considering he was not well during this trip I am totally in awe at his work output. I spent 3 weeks at conferences, and was well, but could not match his incredible work. [image by cogdogblog]

Even though I did attend his workshops in a couple of locations I did not get the opportunity to participate in all his workshops and presentations because sessions at each locations was customized for their local audience. Fortunately Alan has left us the CogDogRoo wiki which contains a wealth of buried bones and gems that are a must to work through.

Here is an overview of the workshops and presentations on CogDogRoo wiki:

1. Being There: In that undistributed future

Emphasis of this presentation was “The thing about technology is you can not watch from the outside to work out how to use it—you need to embed and immerse yourself in this technology. Too often we look at a technology and make judgments without having the knowledge to make those judgments properly — because we have not taken the time to learn what the technology is about. ”

Read my notes from this session here! Check out Alan’s slideshare, Ustream recording, audio recording, notes and links from this session here! Make sure you check out his images from these his powerpoint on Flickr because he has added lots of extra notes to each slide!

2. What’s on your Horizon?

Horizon Report is released by the New Media Consortium each year in January which charts the landscape of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and creative expression on the horizons of less than one year, two to three year and four to five year (here is the 2007 Horizon Report and this is a video interview I did previously with Alan on the Horizon Report).

During this presentation Alan overview the process involved in looking at the horizon of emerging technologies and discussed our Australian Horizon. Read my notes from this session here! Check out Alan’s slideshare, Ustream recording, audio recording, notes and links from this session here!

3. Virtual Worlds – Promise and Perils

This was an engaging introduction to what are Virtual Worlds and why they are becoming popular. As I am already using Second Life and my kids use Virtual worlds like World of Warcraft I wondered how others that had no exposure to Virtual Worlds would find this session. I was extremely pleased to hear it inspired people to join Second Life.

Read my notes from this Virtual World session here! Listen my audio podcast from the session here! Check out Alan’s powerpoint slides (displayed as a Flickr slide show. If you click on a slide it displays the information he has written about that slide, including URLs that you can follow for further information — this is a great feature of which he is using really well) notes and links from this session here!

4. 50 Ways to Tell a Story

This resources from this workshop is absolutely mind blowing. Definitely Alan is amazing crazy? because he used 50 ways to tell the one Story (about a dog called Domino) by road testing 50 different online tools. He worked through the whole process of:

I used this resource to determine which online video creators were worth testing (the posts related to this are Sunday Job! Road Test Some More Online Video Creators! and Job for Saturday! Road test of online video creators!).

5. Precious Web Gems

🙁 Wish I had got to do this session! The idea was for participants expose themselves to a small range of practical Web 2.0 tools that had been recommended by educators rather than being overwhelmed by too many. When I get an opportunity I plan to work through the task, road test some Web 2.0 Gems and the Web 2.0 Laundry list.

6. Powerful Personal Portals

This session was on how to use free web tools such as Google Home Pages, PageFlakes or Netvibes to quickly and easy build custom portal-like web sites to bring information from multiple web sites to the one location (here is the information from this session).

Pleaaaaase if you are reading this blog and not bringing the posts from this blog into a feed reader like Google Reader, bloglines or netvibes — make the time to set up your feed reader — it will save you time. Here is my “How to” subscribe to blogs information to get you started.

Forget The Gossip! What Did You Learn?

ustreamsueAfter 4 days of workshops (mLearn 2007 conference and Alan Levine’s workshop) I was struggling to stay awake by the end of the day on Friday. But rather than sneak in a nanny nap in the afternoon (concerned it would effect my ability to go to sleep that night) I struggled on with the plan for an early dinner followed by early to bed.

Forgot to send the memo to my mate Simon Brown, re-early night, who decided that “Hey, Sue want to test Ustream.TV?” I should add I think he may have meant I want to test Ustream but me being Sue took over and decided that might be cool to do a wrap on the conference so decided to broadcast from my hotel room while convincing my new mate Lance from Melbourne that he should join me in the broadcast!

So with Simon’s excellent guidance we got Ustream working and grabbed an audience using twitter with viewers from England, USA and Australia. The whole wrap on the conference was going okay until Lisa Durff threw in the curly question in the chat area – “But what did you learn?” Boy, tough audience you actually want to know what I learnt? You can check out the recording here!

Good question Lisa! And really that is why it is all about — “what did you learn from attending a conference that you did not know before?” And for someone like myself who has spent a lot of time immersed in learning about m-learning and mobile technologies that is a real curly question — with no simple answer.

So this weekend I have been trying to bring the past week all together into one place (my wiki) so I can reflect on what I learnt from the conference. Once I used to write my notes with pen and paper but I have found that writing my notes directly on my computer then transferring them to my wiki site helps my learning process because it ensures I do actually reflect on what I had written whereas less likely with hand written notes.

There is way too much information to summarise in a blog post so I suggest if you are interested in what happened at mLearn 2007 conference and what was discussed in relation to mlearning (mobile learning) you check out the pages on my wiki that:

Here are some key points covered during the conference that we need to be considering:

  • When implementing technology there needs to be adequate support is provided for both staff and students. Common mistake is to not supply adequate support – e.g. when observed students who had PDAs supplied for their use 24/7 most were not using their devices effectively–poor use of text writing.
  • Educators using technology with students are often failing to build reflection into the process and we really need to build reflection into the learning cycle to increase the gain of the learning
  • We need to remember the things we knew before, in terms of good pedagogy, do not become irrelevant, and do not get thrown out with using new technology. If you throw out good pedagogy when you implement technology you can end up with bad situations in the classroom. So instead of the students gaining from using the technology their learning suffers.
  • Classic example of misconception of the ability of the digital natives is educators will assume if students are using the technology they must know what they are doing and must be understanding what they need to do.
  • The trouble with learner autonomy does not always mean that they will make good choices — as educators we need to make sure our learners stay on path.
  • Mobile phones are the most owned mobile device. There are 3 billion mobile phones worldwide. Nokia 1100 (a basic mobile phone) has sold over 100 million compared to ipods which have not sold near 100 million and there is not even 1 billion PC in the world.
  • The reality is that 2.7 billion mobile phones are text and voice only and are not high end mobile phones. So at the moment we need to be focus on the text and voice aspect of mobile phones if we are looking at using learner devices.
  • Mobile phones are the most personalised device that people have – most people do not willingly feel comfortable letting others touch their mobile phone. UK study indicated 9 out of 10 people could not live without phone and 18-29 year olds spend more time messaging than talking on their phones. Most people used mobile phones to connect to mainly 5 people.
  • With mobile phones there is a big distinction between mobile computing and mobile life style. The really successful services on mobile phones fit mobile life style. Services that make people stop, type it in just don’t succeed.
  • Mobile phones are seen by many as personal devices – for connecting with their friends and some educators indicated their thoughts that students may not be happy with using their mobile phones for learning.
  • There needs to be more emphasis on user content creation that using mobile devices for content delivery.


WOW — for the Aussies did I mentioned I got to play with two iphones?

I am well known for NOT BEING INTO MOBILE PHONES , so don’t bother ringing my mobile phone or sending an SMS, but totally love the mobile web. Would be quite happy to flush my phone down the closest toilet and have never felt any strong desire to buy any mobile phone….until I got my hands on the iphone. Now that is a phone that I wanted to buy — fortunately for my husband it is not available in Australia. Hopefully when it is released here they will have fixed all aspects of the iphone that I don’t like.

Smart Conference Sharing With Your Readers! How To Do It And Survive!

mlearn 2007Decided to give myself another title to add to “Most Disorganised Traveler of the Year Award!” and “Crazy Mutlitasker” “Smart Conference Sharing To Your Readers!” [image by sridgway]

Before I came to the conference I debated how to share the information from mLearn 2007 conference with my readers, without overloading them! My concerns were live blogging may overwhelm my readers (too many posts) and at the moment live blogging does not fit how I like to learn and write posts.

I would love to be able to live blog like Carole did at Alan Levine’s session on Being There. She was absolutely incredible — was able to listen to what Alan was saying and then blog live about her reflections on what he was saying at the same time — compare what she has posted with what I wrote. I like to write what is being said and reflect more deeply later whereas she was reflecting as she was writing! I have to give her the “Incredible Reflective Live Blogger” title as she was sitting next to me writing this post!

So my brain was ticking over–how do I ensure that readers that want regular updates from the mlearning conference get what they want, I learn how I like to learn and other readers get the posts they like?

Simple the answer is my wiki! What I have done is set up a page on my Mobile Technology in TAFE wiki specifically for the conference. I searched technorati for posts on the conference and added RSS feeds from each blog site to this page. This means that my readers can read news as it is happening from people who are live blogging — I can add new feeds to the page when I find new bloggers posting on the conference and it takes the pressure of me to feel the need to satisfy readers on my own blog! Team work in action from everyone!

How did I know to add the RSS feeds from blogs? Well Frances is a great friend and she showed me how she did it with her student blogs — check out her instructions. Frances ROCKS!

So on my wiki page for the mlearn 2007 conference I have:

  • Elluminate session schedule that people can download so they can join the live sessions if they choose
  • RSS feeds from each blog that is posting on the conference
  • Photos feed from the conference
  • Links to websites where people have located information about their presentation
  • Twitter feed from mlearn2007

This makes it easier for:

  • My readers to keep updated with the latest information
  • Me to go through the information from the conference, reflect on what has happened at the conference and then write the information in a form that suits how I want to learn

Please let me know your thoughts? Is the wiki helpful? If so, have I missed anything?

Apologies to all the fantastic people that I have meet in the past few days — and my readers who want to hear about them — but even for this multitasker it is hard to keep on top of all that I am doing — the posts are coming. In the meantime stay tuned and watch the wiki page for the latest updates.

So, yer in Melbourne? Dinner? Want to Join Us?

Well I had wanted to catch up with James Farmer (Edublogs founder) when I came to Melbourne but did not want to bug him as he is SO BUSY. So was incredibly pleased when he found out that I was here and sent me an email asking me if I wanted to catch up.

Knowing James love of him with added speech bubbles I thought it was best to use images to write this post and invite those in Melbourne into edublogging to join us for dinner!

Please if you are in Melbourne, into edublogging, and you want to chat up with James Farmer and myself, join us for dinner. We are meeting at 6.3pm tomorrow night (Wednesday 17 October) on steps at Flinders Street below clocks….as per picture below [Image by The Beethovan Connection]!!!!!


PS If you can’t join us…but you want me to ask James questions…let me know and I will ask on your behalf.

Exploring Ports, Libraries and Chocolate! What a Day!

ferryMMMmm not sure what I can say? DON’T trust Google weather predictions?

Melbourne is known for being a lot colder than Perth and I was told to pack my warm gear even though it is spring. Melbourne weather on Google for the week did look like it was going to be colder and wet later in the week (Annelieske even bought an umbrella yesterday based on my weather updates). Just looking out the window and looks like another fine day! So decided to check the Bureau of Meteorology web site — looks like weather reasonably fine all week in Melbourne and slightly warmer than Perth for the week! And I have no summer clothes with me!

With such fine weather yesterday we went for a quick sightseeing ferry ride to Melbourne Port and back. My work is located in the Fremantle Port area (actually on the South Mole behind our Maritime Museum) and I work with lecturers who train people how to operate the large ships. So I am always really fascinated to look at how different ports operate — michaelthinking now that one of my colleague from our Maritime Operations section will need to bring me back to Melbourne for a proper tour of the Port because it is the 8th busiest port in the World. Looking forward to chatting with my work colleagues so they can explain some more details when I show them my pictures of the Melbourne Port.

Next we were lucky enough to meet up with Michael Abulencia from RMIT. Apologies to all my librarian friends have I been in the dark ages? Michael showed us through RMIT’s library which has now been set up to encourage collaboration and sharing. What a bubbly place it was — I wanted to hang out in there! The library is broken up into zones — quiet zone and a zone where interaction is encouraged (thus noiser area). Everywhere you looked students were working in groups, excited, interacting… so full of life. They are allowed to eat and drink. WOW wanted to take photos but did not want to offend students. Would love to hear from people like Kathryn and Con what the libraries are like at their Universities — are they set up similar? What are your thoughts on this type of set up?

Michael also showed us his work location–yes, have to say he has a nice view of Melbourne but does it beat my view of the ocean? We finished up with a lovely lunch followed by dessert at a chocolate shop (lets hope Noodlez does not hear about this!). Mmmm death by chocolate mousse. Thanks Michael– I was great catching up with after chatting online for more than a year!

chocWe finished the day with a nice dinner with Carole McCulloch sitting outside at a Cafe on Southbank Promenade. Melbourne really beginning to grow on me! Looking forward to Alan Levine’s session today although I hope he is feeling better? — and welcoming reception for mLearn tonight!

Believe that my readers that helped me with tips for traveling forgot a few important ones: 1) Pack comfortable walking shoes — have very sore soles on my feet 2) Pace your eating — food is a major part of networking but go for small portions if you have any hope of surviving conferences

But I didn’t think of them — so if you have any more tips keep them coming!

Help Required For Disorganised Tourist!

horseWell the good news is the “Most Disorganised Traveler of the Year” managed to arrived in Melbourne with all essential items thanks to lots of guidance and tips from my readers! Unfortunately I should have also asked for ‘must see tips’ for tourists because we arrived in Melbourne early so we (Annelieske and I) could be tourist and then had no idea what is worth seeing/doing in Melbourne! Bummer!

We did manage to check out a bit of Melbourne starting with a lovely breakfast at a restaurant on Southbank Promenade overlooking Yarra River. A customer and the waitress told us we must check out the Queen Victoria Markets — apparently not to be missed — so we went for a nice walk to the markets. Along the way we just HAD to have a ride on a horse and carriage… while I also made sure that I took lots of tram photos (something that you have to do when your city does not have trams!). You can watch the adventures of my trip in my Flickr account.

Please note always a good question to ask your friend — do you actually like shopping?–oops!!! After a nice long walk to the Queen Victoria Markets we discovered that we both really hate shopping! And to top it off there was no good clothes or hair for my Second Life Avatar! So instead we went searching for a bookstore because when I get an opportunity I really love to read a good book…

grahamThis afternoon I meet up with Graham Clark — who was nice enough to invite us to join him and his friends at the Pixar Exhibit for their 20 years in Animation. WOW the pictures drawn by the artists for creating the films were so amazing. Thanks Graham for letting us join you!

There will be a few opportunities to check out some more sites during my stay — so please tell me–what sites should I be checking out in Melbourne?

Before I finish this post I just have to say right now I am thinking I am in total heaven! Annelieske has gone out for dinner with a friend and I have the place to myself…. No noise — no kids fighting–no what’s for dinner–just me lying in bed with Mac! Chomping on a bit of chocolate….and we each have separate rooms. Best part is mine has an ensuite bathroom —bliss!

Sorry everyone who wants to catch up this week I may have to choose Mac over you! Except there may be a small issue of Internet access. Now this apartment may not have a plug in connection for a laptop above toilet (YUCK) but it does have wireless that I can pay for. Normally I have to pay a daily rate at a hotel. Here I am paying for Azure Wireless which unlike the access I have had in other hotels has a download limit. So I have paid for 5 days or about 580 MB download. I am thinking we should have a bet as to how many days I will have Internet access for based on a download limit? 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5?

I should probably also mention that Telstra was nice enough to send me an SMS to tell me I am at 109 % usage of my data plan on my PDA—that has been only from 2 days of use!
