Average Home Sizes Around the World
In 2007 I released some of the first data on what was then called ‘web 2.0’ platforms which included diagrams with ‘social’, ‘studying’ and ‘professional’ nestling alongside each other to highlight out how these boundaries are blurring. I have also researched the wild frontiers of Virtual Worlds and Massively Multiplayer Online games in the context of teaching and learning. More recently I have been closely involved in the work of the HEFCE Online Learning Task Force.
Alongside overseeing the creation and delivery of over 50 online distance courses I am currently the Creative Director of the ‘Maths in the City’ project working with Professor Marcus du Sautoy. He is also leading a study of the use/reuse of Open Educational Resources and research into what motivates learners to engage with the web based around his Digital Visitors & Digital Residents principle.
I'm apparently an engaging speaker and have presented at numerous conferences and workshops. I'm keen to see beyond the technology to the larger underlying trends that are emerging as society moves online. Visit the TALL blog for some of my (fairly) recent thoughts, or follow my thinking as ideas occur to me: @daveowhite.
