Is it sensible to be writing on Friday what I did on Tuesday?
I've face this dilemma a thousand times after 35 years of keeping a diary.
Better late than never if the events are of value (they are) and worth sharing (they are) and of educational value to My M.A (they're that too).
I took notes all the way through a day long workshop on Social Media in Higher Education with Tracy Payle of Pickle Jar.
I even held the iPad aloft to take screen grabs of her presentation, as well as grabs of any exeercises I worked on with my colleague from Imperial.
The 'Heads Up' for me were the exercises we did anda the results we collectively produced. We must see those who could become engaged in social media as a plethora of types with different inate skills and interests.
Then play to their strengths.
Not rocket science, but a reminder.
We might hsve more than a library of content to put out, but better only to offer what we understand, believe or know thst our audience want.
Then to see the long-term engagement with people as they think about, become inspired by, then sign up for a qualification ... And their journey onwards as a student and alumni.
(all being was initially written off an ipad. Without fingers like chopsticks editing and correctng is impossible. I know present this as a draft to fix later. I can't use html or any of the dropnox tools either. I undersetood that the OU were 'tablet agnostic'. At the moment, at least in the VLE, they are not fully iPad).
Some days I mostly read, giving me something to write about and forever providing a perspective on how blogging works (it does).
