I took a few days off this weekend (yay for summer!), and when I came back I saw that Biray Seitz had made a Connected Learning with Cats playlist/challenge, so I made a list below also of the links of all the slidedecks and notes that go with the different presentations. To tell the truth, the slidedecks (with all the links to click!) plus my notes (more links!) are probably more useful than the stand-alone videos:
- Twitter4Canvas Slidedeck-Notes
- Blog-as-Homepage Slidedeck-Notes
- Growth Mindset Slidedeck-Notes
- YouTube Playlists Slidedeck-Notes
- Using Free Online Books Slidedeck-Notes
- Pinterest-Flickr-Diigo-Padlet Slidedeck-Notes
Biray's challenge is to watch the videos, and here is my personal challenge to anybody using the videos: if you MAKE something that is inspired by one of the presentations, then leave a link here, or upload the image, or upload the screenshot if you make something in a Canvas Page, and I will gladly award you another 50-points Badge for Connected-Learning-with-Cats Maker Challenge.
Nothing would make me happier than to give away all my Community points for the making of things... and hey, it's summer, people! Long summer days with — glory hallelujah! — some free time at last. Learn something! And, best of all: make something new!
No need to watch all the videos for this challenge. In fact, no need to even watch any videos since you can use all the slidedecks and notes by themselves too... just take a look at the one where the topic and/or tool is of greatest interest to you, see what inspires you, and then decide what you want to make. If you run into a snag or have questions or need more step by step instructions, just leave me a question here. That will really help me out, in fact, because I'm never sure just which things are going to be obvious and which things need more detailed explanation.
What else will people dream up...?
Drive your own learning... and do things you have never done before.
