View from my window..to all flickr members have a nice day ..

Today I virtually attended the EduCon2.3 session What's Wrong With This Picture? led by Dean Shareski & Darren Kuropatwa. During the session, attendees were charged with telling a lie with a picture or movie. These were supposed to be emailed to Darren's Flickr account but I don't have the email so I thought I'd just post it to my own account instead.

 

I failed at this completely with my DSLR so I tried it with my iPod Touch instead and wasn't satisfied with this either. There's too much other stuff in the picture to have it work, but I tried and I need a photo for the day, so this is it. Now I need to figure out how to really do this!

Here's a great quote from Benjamin Franklin. I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.

(Version 3) My submission for the the 2013 Saylor Foundation Digital Education Conference. www.saylor.org/posters-2/

  

My poster/meme is targeted at exposing the mixed bag of what people mean by the term Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC. As with many trending topics, many people and institutions have jumped on the MOOC bandwagon, but have little shared understanding of what they actually are, or what they are useful for. By adding prompts around the potential meaning of each letter, I wanted to represent visually the fuzziness of the concept, and the need to develop a better taxonomy of what it means to learn online.

 

Although I have represented this concept visually myself, I would not have come up with the idea without attending Educon in Philadelphia in January 2013. I borrowed the tagline from Jon Becker, Assistant Professor at VCU.

#ds439 Today's theme is red. Red hot? Red paint? Or something else?

 

What else for a Fri Night! Take me home! It has been a long week and I am not at Educon! So yes, ruby slippers take me someplace!

New shoes for Educon. Wanted something cute, but comfy.
