On Tuesday I was invited to speak at one of DMU's Institute of Creative Technologies 2006 NLAB seminars. It was great to finally meet up with Sue Charman and Professor Sue Thomas, and I really enjoyed meeting the seminar participants and talking about all the interesting research, thinking and practice going on in and around my hometown (Leicester, rhymes with Nesta). I gave a brief overview of the current state of play in education, focusing on the use of edublogs and the edublog communities in the UK. The panel was live blogged (rather disconcertingly to be on the receiving end) by Suw.
My slides were mainly a collection of handy links, so here they are for anyone who wants them:
Suw and I look extreemly serious in the pictures. In real life we actually do make some jokes.
