I have used Storify to introduce social media before. And I’m not above doing so again. For its sheer ease of use, and how quickly you can assemble a story from a wide assortment online sources, it should be an early stop on your Edmedia quest.
I have tried to keep a robust set material to explore on the Open Educational Resource Page (OERs), but this is a topic that is shifting so fast these days its impossible to keep up but in a cursory way. Unless of course you are leveraging a ‘PLN’ (more on that in class discussion 😉
As noted, there has been a more extensive set of learning objectives for this session, but I have been updating it for today’s session.
Drawing is a common and powerful means to convey ideas, but is often hampered by a perceived “inability to draw”. In this session, participants practice their drawing skills and explore strategies to apply them to their teaching.
What are some of the benefits to “going visual” with hand drawn visuals?
Here it is, the Spring 2017 cohort for the EdMedia Program (EMP) Participants were introduced to the inner workings of the program, as well have begun their transmedia experience. Some great discussions were had all around, and with the largest group to date, we are looking forward to seeing all the creative works that will come forth. If you are following along at home, be sure to check our home page for updates as to the mystery of the quartz parrot, a real knuckle biter.
Let us know any feedback and reactions you ahve had on the first day, and we will see you on thursday!
There were so many news items yesterday that I decided to make a “Storify” to discuss them all in our session today. Besides going through the material on our session page, we can go over the storiews below and learn more about open education at Simon Fraser, BC, and beyond.
A popular technique to create educational videos, often referred to as explainer videos or whiteboard animations, is by recording the process of visualizing an idea, through sketching. There are many ways to accomplish this, and although it helps to have some drawing experience, it is by no means the most important skill. As with most EdMedia projects it is the story being told that will have the most impact on the audience. How clearly you can tell that story and provide the information is the challenge you need to consider.
