Blog Post: fish ‘n’ chips and thoughts at the seaside down South #ECEL2011 #CMC11
This is Brighton where I attended the 10th European Conference of e-Learning. Not sure why we keep using the e- or distinguish between e- and non-e since it is, or should be considered, now part of normal learning. But what is normal learning? We seem to have lost and forgotten all about the playfulness of [...]

Blog Post: Want to know what your students think about your teaching? Ask them! @pgcap #CMC11 MOOC
Last week’s #coresep11 session of the @pgcap made me think and reflect about loads of different aspects of teaching and learning and my own practice. One of them was a question raised by one of our students, which stayed in my mind since then. The more I started thinking about it the more I felt [...]

Blog Post: Connecting to be connected? #CMC11 MOOC
Started writing this post a few days ago. Today, I came back and deleted what I had written. It didn’t reflect anymore my thinking. I therefore decided to capture my reflections using photovoices. My thoughts wander to some of my week 2 readings but also to a conference I attended today at the University of [...]

Blog Post: webinaring with fellow MOOCers and disconnected throughts to connect #cmc11
Rushed home to login and participate in this first webinar. I couldn’t believe it when I couldn’t log into Blackboard Collaborate… I thought I would miss it! In the end I didn’t… I have to admit, I expected… the masses when I arrived. I thought finally, I will understand why a MOOC is called a [...]

Blog Post: calling fellow #CMC11 MOOCers
(please note this is the first draft) Big day has arrived and I have to admit I feel a bit lost. Where to look, how to connect and with whom? Started looking for people I know. I have information that some of them signed-up. Haven’t found anybody yet in any of the platforms and am [...]

Blog Post: Is learning changing (for all)? #CMC11 @fredgarnett @pgcap
Just to put things into context first: I haven’t really created any videos for teaching and learning before, despite the fact that I enjoy capturing some of our family moments using this medium and enjoy playing them back. My boys love this too and have started taking their own as well. I noticed, that these [...]

Blog Post: Has it started yet? #cmc11
Yes, the Creativity and Multicultural Communication MOOC starts in September 2011! Open to us all. More info here. Also started experimenting with video and created the clip ¬†below with the above material. I also added Clara Schumann’s music which reminded me of the time when I was translating Peter H√§rtling’s book “Schumanns Schatten” into Greek.

Blog Post: I love making things… #cmc11
Warning! This is not a polished piece (did I have to say that? Anyway… let’s just start). I always loved making things. Well at least as long as I remember myself and from what others have told me and the photographs I have seen and some of the evidence that still exists today. I love [...]
