Where Sheila's been seen this week – 100th post, open education and movie making for #byod4l

This is my 100th post on this blog. I was going to try and mark this milestone with an in-depth, though provoking piece on the state of education and the role of technology. However, work kind of got in the way this week so it’s really a very quick post sharing a couple of things I’ve been up to this week. I think, dear reader, that’s what you prefer anyway!

On Monday I presented our experiences of our open event GCU Games On at the joint Jisc RSC Scotland and SHED Open Education day.  I’ve written a quick summary of the day, including my slides, on the GCU Blended Learning Team blog.

We’re excited to be one of the institutional partners for the next instantiation of the hugely successful and enjoyable Bring Your Own Device for Learning (#BYOD4L) open event in January. All those involved have been asked to create a short intro video, so yesterday Jim, Linda and I spend a few hours, mainly laughing, and making our video. Many thanks to our colleague Martin who saved the day and filmed for us. Who would have thought it would be so difficult to talk, hold and pass an ipad?

Anyway as they say the trailers have the best bits of any movies so I hope you enjoy ours.

And here is our intro video- enjoy!
