Dialogue, debate and destinations

I was challenged by delegates at Solstice to elaborate on the legal and ethical issues of Creative Commons and other Copyleft approaches. Creative Commons, I explained, is a means of circumventing Internet Copyright constraints. Finally, a note about the Digital Literacies Conference at Southampton (pictured). The Storify record of the event and the Flickr image collection by Ivan Mendelez have captured some of the dynamics and atmosphere of the conference.

Web feats 6: Photosharing

Learning with e's

photosharing sites is that they constitute their own specialist social networks - and these are organised around an appreciation of great photography, and an interest in talking about images. I have seen some very interesting uses including one where a biology teacher used the tagging facility on Flickr to teach human anatomy. Others use Flickr to encourage students to be creative in the generation of content. Image source Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

Capturing the moment

Learning with e's

The picture of me on the left was taken around 1980 (from another photo collection), capturing a personal moment in time for me. It is now so much easier to create, edit, and share images over social media. Sites such as Picasa, Flickr and Facebook are full of shared images, many that have been posted to the web within seconds of being taken. Photographs are very powerful things. I was looking through some old photographs this week, from my younger days.

Facebookers for example, generally use their real names and images. Flickrites on the other hand are often anonymised, using psuedonyms and images to represent themselves. If they don't have access, can a full picture of life online be obtained? The tweckling or harsh tagging of keynote speakers has been discussed previously by a number of commentators. I'm speaking at ALT-C this week in a symposium called ' New Bottles, Old Wine?

Five tools for global educators

What I will say is that by following a few simple guidelines, teachers can write and present content in accessible formats, and can incorporate images (pictures, diagrams), videos, audio and hyperlinks, all of which can help students to investigate a topic in greater detail if they wish. The comments boxes below each post support dialogue, and the tagging feature on most blogs enables easier search for content.
