Good discussion with +Leo Gaggl​ about progressive techniques for the ethical retention of data for use in #learninganalytics - specifically Learning Records Systems (LRS) and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) for a more platform agnostic collection methods, and possible use in micro credentialism toward a more flexible and personalised learning and assessment regime. Make sense?

Good to catch up +Leigh Blackall ! Should do more often.

+Paul Ross discussion centered largely on capturing and storing "experiences" from multiple disparate systems. The measuring of learning is largely in the analytics & mapping / assessing of experiences.

Unless you haven’t heard of the internet you probably spent at least a few moments on Friday trying to determine the colour of that dress, which caused a lot of online debate as to whether it was black and blue or gold and white. The original Tumblr post quickly went viral - epidemic even - and the media were quick to eat up a story that was dumped in their lap.

Nice... When I commute with Lisa Barnes (spouse) I refer to her as Minister of Finance or Minister of Cultural Affairs.

Not too busy. Good range of prices. Loved the Pork Hock Pot for $6.80!

If you think $150 per hour is a fair charge, and you can expect the mechanics get less than $30, then this is the centre for you. Note: they don't take Motorpass, nor do they think to order in obvious parts when booking the service - meaning you'll have to come back.

Stylish, moody little arts bar with quality food and drinks, and innovative decor.

Centrally located, very tidy and exceptionally helpful staff. We stayed in room 202 for a week with 2 little kids. 202 is a very spacious, quiet and comfortable aircon room with a king bed, a single and a fold out single, fresh linen every day, a clean bathroom, minifridge, tv and good wifi (after rebooting the modem outside the door). Breakfasts are lovely. Charming decor and attractive wall art. A refuge.
