  • Now, I know there are a few of you in this room that I have connected with via Twitter or other technologies, but I suppose the question for many of you is, “who is this guy”. I want to thank the VP for the warm introduction, but would also like to offer a bit more of myself. I feel that this is important as identity is an important notion throughout this talk.

    Digital identity, and how the network defines us, is an important, emerging trend.

    I define myself as a family man, a life-long learner, a teacher, and a risk-taker. I’ve worked in all educational sectors in my province, K12, technical, university, and correctional. In occasionally podcast with the Edtech Posse with some friends and colleagues in Saskatchewan. And I’ve been an advocate for openness for quite a few years now.

  • First, we wanted to make sure that the assignments were meaningful to students. Students created a webfolio. They introduced themselves (to the web) via Youtube videos (when ready). They use social media to learn social media. In most cases, they would then take this directly into their practice.

    11. "Web 2.0 tools exist that might allow academics to reflect on and reimagine what they do as scholars. Such tools might positively affect— even transform—research, teaching, and service responsibilities—only if scholars choose to build serious academic lives online, presenting semipublic selves and becoming more invested in and connected to the work of their peers and students.

    12. What would you suggest to improve the experience for students? What parts of this framework make sense for all learners? What parts don’t?
