Excerpt: I prefer film, edited and unedited, these days, as a medium of communication. When this post comes out there will also be a link to a live streamed debate at the bottom of the page to The Really Free School in Bloomsbury, London on 10th February 2011 where the conversation will continue in other forms. What is the purpose of education? Keri (Facer) asks in the first post of this purpos/ed project: What is the Good Life? (she actually talks about Society but I interpret it like this). What is your vision for the Good Life and how can education help in that…

Excerpt: As the new year starts I thought I would share one of the many Pro Bono projects I am initiating this year. As part of a payback to the educational community for being able to work in the field of innovation I try to recycle any research or resources I come across on the web to do with Open Source software. It struck me some time ago, when working for Open Source Schools, that there was very little information pulling together all allied resources on Open Source or free 3D Modelling/ Graphics software. The use of 3D models, interoperability in this area…

Excerpt: This will be the first TeachMeet in Second Life, so, in theory a Global Teachmeet – see the Wiki for instructions. On Friday May 7th at 8pm GMT there is the first Teachmeet in Second Life. This is open to all educators working in Second Life and allied Immersive Worlds from ALL sectors. If you do not know what a “TeachMeet” is then go along to the wiki and watch the video at : http://teachmeet.pbworks.com/TeachMeet-Second-Life A teachmeet is where teachers gather to share good practice – they make 7 or 2 minute presentations. I am quite happy to facilitate the evening and anyone with Machinima,…

Here I am on the other side of the camera for a change – that’s a novel experience – talking about Second Life to David Wilcox at the Wise Kids conference at Bangor. You can see one of my sessions at the earlier Swansea conference here (scroll down) where I show some video of Vicki A Davies and talk about the Reaction Grid Open Sim she has been using with her students. I outline some of the ideas behind “skinning” your own virtual world and do a walkthrough of Second Life.

Excerpt: At BETT2010 this year – one of the fringe events that was very low key but very popular (these videos separately have been viewed almost 500 times), was the Amplied Education discussion evening. I am grateful to the 20 or so people who turned up for the round table discussions – there were at least 3 Becta ICT in Practice Award winners there that evening which might give you an idea of the quality of debate, interest and focus around the subject. Here are the three sessions captured on film: 1) Games in Education led by Tim Rylands 2) Fun at Work PART 1…
