learning, networks, knowledge, technology, community The Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference (LAK16) is happening this week in Edinburgh. I unfortunately, due to existing travel and other commitments, am not in attendance. I have great hope for the learning analytics field as one that will provide significant research for learning and help us move past naive quantitative and qualitative assessments of research and knowledge. I see LA as a bricolage of skills, techniques, and academic/practitioner domains.

Private Label - K-12 Education Why choose Wikispaces Campus? Easy to set up It all starts with a no-obligation, full-featured, 30-day trial. New to E-Learning? Here are Some Simple Steps to Help You Get Started To a novice even simple things seem complex. And when things appear complex, we can become frustrated or feel like we don’t have the skills to accomplish what it is we want to do. I recall years ago when I was learning video production. I felt like my skills were inadequate (which they were). So my instructor told me to record some television commercials and then break them down into pieces to see how they were built. He said that this would help me focus less on the glossiness of the commercials and more on their construction.

CAS Online Here’s some ideas for how you could use the Hour of Code to engage and excite your colleagues, children and their parents. Many of you will be familiar with the Hour of Code and the great resources on Two years ago, the Hour of Code resources provided a great introduction to programming at a time when the computing curriculum was still very new. We’ve moved on from those days, but getting all teachers to feel confident to tech the new curriculum is still a challenge in many schools. 1) Organise a lunchtime session for all the staff.

Elle is referring to Livestream TV with Procast providing all the functionality of a television station using only a camera, mike, laptop and broadband connection. Now $350 / month for a Channel, it is still half the price of the video library we maintain at the college that has video on demand but no live coverage; no scheduled programmming; nor facilities for synchronous chat during live delivery. Go for it Elle! by pauljacobson May 1

dCoda, I don't know what you're referring to here. The pearltree here on the site or the embed in my blog? It seems to be working just fine here on the site. I'm going to check that post and see if the embedded tree is broken. Thanks so much for your feedback. Always appreciated! by thevmcoach Apr 30

Watching the opening talk on compassion (wonderful) the stream is working fine, the page looks very professional. I take it the lack of functionality has to do with the interactive features? At $200 a month, its something one would want paid subscribers for...a classroom fee. I'm getting a flip video camera and plan to produce some videos on herbal medicine, will let you know when I've got something up. Thanks again for this resource (wish it worked better for you though) by dcoda Apr 30

Hi Elle - I have a "college" TV station that I set up in Livestream (took 5 minutes and is free). It broadcasts TED talks automatically. I've been disappointed in the failure at our end to match the bandwidth required - so in it's present form, it is not useful. However, I think that the paying customers ($200 / month) get a fantastic service. by pauljacobson Apr 26

WizIq is a great concept! I however prefer unstructured learning in a sort of Socratic style - WHY WHY WHY??? And because of that, would prefer to set up shop on LiveStream - one's own television station. With Procast, a teacher can stream the talking head, the slideshow on the laptop, the website on the laptop and anything out to an unlimited audience; and receive synchronous chat to respond to. Why settle for a quiz/ by pauljacobson Apr 4
