Hvordan laver man så bedre fjernundervisning?

Når den første panik lægger sig lidt, og det er lykkedes at gennemføre noget online – er det måske tid til at tænke over, hvordan det kan blive (endnu) bedre?

I denne uges Techtopia fortalte jeg om at arbejde på distance og om onlinekonferencer. I indslaget fortæller jeg bl.a. om, hvor vigtigt det er at arbejde bevidst med at skabe nærvær og rum for fælles kaffepauser, når man er sammen på distancen.Continue readingArbejde på distancen

#EDCMOOC Will we need teachers in the future

My digital object is a recording based on pictures of things I drew on paper and moved around 🙂 I have been thinking about the teacher’s role in the future of education during this course, so here are some thoughts on that. (I may make a prettier more stop-motion-y version later on, if anyone would…Continue reading#EDCMOOC Will we need teachers in the future

Humanistic Education & the human element #EDCMOOC

I watched Steve Fuller’s talk and read the article on “Humanistic Education” and I was genuinely surprised and confused! They were talking about a kind of thinking about education, that I had never heard of.

Being Human – Week 3 #EDCMOOC

What is a human and what makes us human? – Well I’m just going to go with the biological definition and stick to “member of the race Homo Sapiens” – wikipedia has an excellent page on Human, well worth a look even if you’re not currently doubting your own existence, uniqueness or sameness to other…Continue readingBeing Human – Week 3 #EDCMOOC

#EDCMOOC w2: Visions of education

Didn’t we get past that since the great dystopia of 1984 (back in 1948!) – well that was my thought at the beginning of the week, peeking at the curriculum for the Edinburgh U coursera course E-learning and Digital Cultures, aka #EDCMOOC And I still…Continue reading#EDCMOOC week one

Digital Humanities

Andrew Prescott aka @ajprescott did a nice overview of Digital Humanities in his keynote today at #dh14dk, this quick write-up won’t do it justice, but it was chock full of interesting links, so I wanted to share a bunch here: He described the first wave of digital humanities was using computers to access, research and…Continue readingDigital Humanities
