New post - "Harness the power of video and increase student engagement"
http://www.dontwasteyourtime.co.uk/technology/harness-the-power-of-video-and-increase-student-engagement/ 

Earlier this year I was invited to contribute to a guide for teachers on the flipped classroom, concentrating on the inclusion, or rather availability, of video to increase student engagement (flipped classroom or not).

After the experience of my first #blimage post (Desks of Doom), and I saw the amazing challenges and responses, I couldn’t resist getting involved again. There have been many new challenges that I have an idea of what I would respond with, but it’s the ‘shark attack’ challenge from Phil Denman (Everything is not Awesome) that I wanted to follow up with.

Have you ever been in trouble for "drawing on the desk?" As you can probably guess from my sketching endeavors, I certainly have. When I first saw this #blimage challenge I was reading this post fr...

Hi everyone. Not sure how much time I can devote to FOS4L but I'll give it a shot. Love the concept of these '...for learning' courses from +Chrissi Nerantzi +Sue Beckingham +Andrew Middleton et al, and happy to be involved in any capacity.

Onwards!

+Sarah Honeychurch shared the 'square peg, round hole' image inviting responses and posts to #blimage  about what the image means. Well, I'm sure we can all relate to this?

In response to +David Hopkins  #blimage  challenge 
What's all about? In short the challenge is to write a blog post prompted by the image on the theme of learning; share your blog post and include the hashtag #blimage. Want to 'share on' the fun? Then inspire someone else by sending them an image. Unsurprisingly, David paid forward the challenge ...

New post Desks of Doom #blimage
Once you've been challenged by +Steve Wheeler, you really ought to step up and deliver. Here's my response to his #blimage challenge.

What's a #blimage ...

"You send an image or photograph to a colleague with the challenge that they have to write a learning related blog post based on it. Just make sure the images aren’t too rude. The permutations are blimmin’ endless."

New post 
"Technology is now part of everyday life for all of us, whether as a student, teacher, administrator, technical specialist, or even just as an ordinary citizen.  The pace in which new technologies emerge from initial concept to widespread adoption is also much faster than ever before, new words being added to the dictionary each year and new websites and apps to get our heads around for anything from paying tax to ordering pizza; from watching the latest movies to speaking with distant relatives; or for learning a new skill and collaborating with others."
A few weeks ago this image/infographic was doing the rounds and being tweeted in my network (thank you Catherine Cronin!) – mapping digital skills in Irish Higher Education. Bringing together themes of 'tools and technology, 'create and innovate', 'communicate and collaborate, ...

Just a few words on the free download of The Really Useful #EdTechBook. I've changed the setting so it is now only the first two chapters that are available for free (that's +Wayne Barry and +Zak Mensah chapters, as well as +Catherine Cronin's excellent foreword). There have been 1749 individual downloads from 57 different countries - which are plotted on the map.

The countries are identified in the logs based on the visiting IP address. if I could find a tool that could take the log of IP address and play them all we'd get a bigger picture of where

Top free downloads are in:

US - 736
UK - 349
France 114
Netherlands - 94
Germany - 86
Canada - 58
China - 47
Ireland - 40
Italy - 28
Australia - 20

Story
Tagline
eLearning Consultant, Warwick Business School
Introduction
With experience of learning technologies my main area of interest is the support of learning and education, where I focus on the use of appropriate technologies to enrich and engage students and educators both in and out of the classroom. I have further interest in the appropriate use of tools and techniques for online and distance learners to foster relationships, networks, and their learning capabilities in an environment that is as comforting and engaging as we can make it.

I also use my background with learning technologies to question the support roles and how they can be used to their maximum potential, and how I myself fit into this arena. My work and research continues to focus my attention, experience, and reading in online and distance learning, mobile learning, open badges, eBooks and eReaders, social media for learning, and the use of tablet and smartphones in effective student engagement.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA, 2011) and holder of Certified Membership of the Association of Learning Technology (CMALT, 2013), as well as an assessor for CMALT candidates and I sit on the CMALT Development Group for ALT.
