Preparing myself for the BeTreat – time and learning artifacts
Posted Juli 14, 2012on:
Today I returned to the virtual room of the BEtreat – and added Bev and Etienne to my skype contacts.
And now I will solve the world time issue to decrease my confusion and insecurity.
- I learned how to use world time buddy
- Then I checked the date of the preparatory meeting
- And I added the online meeting successfully to my Google calendar (which I didn’t use until now)
I remember that when I checked the BEtreat invitation and what to do and what to bring – there was a question about my learning artefacts. And in the last weeks I was reflecting about „learning artefacts“ – and identified some.
|In my work in the field of E-learning I’m using Gilly Salmon’s 5 stage model in all my online training designs. So of course the certificate of her course is my first learning artifact.|
|As I’m moderating online groups all the time I want to add one of my lists to check the activities of my participants. On the one hand it’s not a „real“ learning artifact, but on the other hand it is – as I’m learning a lot moderating „my“ virtual groups.|
|I’m head of a research group (very applied research) and we are working and learning together. Therefore my next learning artifact is a photo of one of our brainstorming sessions.|
|Furthermore I attended the Change MOOC and was very fascinated of the MOOC cow. In my team we decided to develop the MOOC cow to „our“ ZML cow, which was a very funny process.|
|During my participation of the Change MOOC Stephen Downes asked us to develop a learning artifact. And I tried to convert my learning experience dancing Tango into a learning artifact.||Link to the blog post|
Now I’m satisfied that I have done my next steps in my preparation for the BEtreat and I look forward to enjoy the weekend.
