EdTech Summit > Miss it our miss out!

Day two is proving as valuable as day one. 

I’d like to do this every quarter, or at least once a term … just to get a grip on industry best practice in a fast changing world, to get a feel for what works so as to avoid what in practice does not. 

I’ve just come out of ‘Promote the Benefits of Using Technology’

From Personal Learning Networks (PLN) – very OU MAODE, we also came away with two books, a few theories and a lot of notes on what people like or do not like.

Matthew Syed: Rebel Ideas

David Price: The Power of Us

Communities of Practice > Wenger quoted, I’d add my old favourite Engestrom.

Then a mix of the physical environment: corridor, coffee machine, staff room and water cooler, as well as the digital apps and platforms such as Google Classroom, WhatsApp, Chat, WordPress blogs, use of e-Newsletters and flyers … and analogue favourites of posters and newsletters too.

Others have had success with Digital Champions.

No one has had success with Twitter, but Facebook and LinkedIn are worth another look.
