passionate about technology enhanced learning. Started out with eLearning, than going into mLearning and now realizing that ubiquitous learning ... will bring all differentiated technology enhanced learning back to the term learning. I currently work at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Belgium and I am starting my exploratory thesis work for a M. Ed, in Distance Education at Athabasca University in Canada. My main interests are innovative learning methods (MOOC's, socio-constructivist learning), lifelong learning, social media for learning, network for knowledge... well anything that involves learning and connecting to improve knowledge (while using technology).

A great new project from MIT CitizenScience on actively changing algorithms of twitter and facebook to see what you can do (and try to get it the way you like it!) and - after weeks of reading, a blogpost on comeback of correlations as a scientific wonder (oh, I do not like that), the inevitable way in which humans make something measurable and than distort it (thanks to @miketaylor ), how humans are now reduced to 12 likes to get their profile (I would hope we are more complex than that!) and the wonderful @autummcaines who wrote a fabulous post on her trials and errors to get her data cleared from cambridge analytica all the way back in February 2017 (she is soooo quick on the job!).

Playing around with Alexa for instructional and learning design purposes. This first part of a blogpost series is on the basics of installing and using an Alexa Echo Dot to build a learning hub or smarthub.

Great initiative from the Rebus community ​: collaboratively creating open textbooks (librarians, educators, researchers... unite!) #openeducation . This is something to look into if you want to get an open textbook out there yourself: good community, collaborative support, networked and social.

Sharing an update on the latest few weeks: life without research access to a library, new dietary related research, and with a video compiled of short scenes from weekly life during taxol treatment... including a yodel from my mom, a quick off-to-school-jog and showing the wonderful provider of ice-gloves.

Looking for some Artificial Intelligence implementations (based on data analysis) in education for critical thinking purposes. And sharing some AI information.

+Stephen Downes​ do you know of any such initiatives?
