Day 30: Showcase your #EdTech journey

The last day of the #JuneEdTechChallenge and a chance for us all to be a bit proud and put ourselves on a pedestal and shout about our achievements.

Many colleagues and friends in these roles are not naturally good at shouting about our own acheivements, so seeing how people will complete this part of the challenge will be interesting. As will seeing what people remember of their own achievements and LT journey, and what others remember of it too. Indeed, what I remember will no doubt be different to what you remember, so please tell me your highlgihts of our time together, dear reader?

For me, there are a few stand-out moments from my +15 years in learning technology, learning design, and a few more senior roles too, which include:

Each day has been different and a challenge for many, many different reasons. One constant, however, has been both my need to grow and learn, and the network on Twitter and LinkedIn that has helped this journey – directly and indirectly. The list of those who have been on this journey with me continues to grow to this very day, and I thank you all!

10 Wünsche für kommende Veranstaltungen an physischen Orten

Wenn im Herbst wieder Veranstaltungen vor Ort stattfinden dürfen: Welche Erfahrungen nehmen wir aus den letzten Monaten mit? Was hat sich verändert, wenn wir an das Zusammenspiel von Online und physischen Orten denken? Werden wir Veranstaltungen zukünftig anders konzipieren? Nele Hirsch hat 10 Wünsche und Ideen notiert und beschrieben:

1. Bewusste Wahl …
2. Blended-Verknüpfungen …
3. Neue Wege für ‘Vorträge’ …
4. Bewusste Pause von anderem & Perspektivwechsel …
5. Kids welcome! …
6. Smartphone-Normalität …
7. Hands-On …
8. Raum-Experimente …
9. Online-Only Teilnahmemöglichkeit …
10. Singen & spielen …

Ich bin bei Punkt 9., „Online-Only Teilnahmemöglichkeit“, etwas länger stehengeblieben. Derzeit beschränken sich solche Angebote bei Konferenzen zum Beispiel auf das Abonnements eines (werbenden) Newsletters. Oder die spätere Freischaltung von Vorträgen. Aber, wie Nele Hirsch schreibt, geht da sicher noch mehr, und es würde „den Druck für eine gute Dokumentation erhöhen“.
