Weeknotes 05062015

It has been, in many ways, a fairly quiet week as I was working on: exam boards as its that time of year planning course staffing for next year so my head was buried in spread sheets for a while researching literature on communities on Twitter and considering the role of hashtags and trending topics […]

Weeknotes 29052015

I would like to develop the habit of daily notes. In part so I don’t loose track of what has been done each day but also to support a return to blogging starting with summarising those daily notes in to weekly notes. What I need is to spend some serious time on forming and maintaining […]

Unbundling higher education

LinkedIn network map

This is a very short post on my LinkedIn network map.  The identification of three distinct clusters of contacts is interesting and (kind of) makes sense. What is particularly useful is identifying the links between clusters that ‘should’ be stronger. In terms of developing a professional personal learning network as part of a personal learning environment, […]

Open innovators
