    Our Designated Learner and Social Media/Networking Tools/Resources Experiment Continues.

    Prior to the session, participants are asked to build a VoiceThread and respond to other VoiceThreads. Post your VoiceThread by commenting to this post. We will be extending our learning from the February 6th session. If you did not attend, this link will take you resources on how to create and respond to VoiceThreads.

    During the session, be prepared to discuss how your VoiceThread and/or experience with your own and other's VoiceThreads would be beneficial to instruction.  We will also talk about what to avoid when considering VoiceThread for instruction and share lessons learned from our designated learner experiment. Penny will demonstrate how to embed a VoiceThread into a blog.

    Thinking about Violence in our Learning Spaces
    February 22, 2013  2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all.
    Steven Bell, Temple University

    We want our learning spaces to be safe - not only safe for sharing ideas but safe from physical danger. Despite our best efforts we cannot always prevent violence on campus.
    Just as we need the right technology to advance learning, we need to have in place the appropriate security measures in order for faculty and students to be prepared for unexpected emergencies.
    While technology can play a role in both prevention and detection, creating more secure learning spaces is the result of campus-wide preparation.

    Up-coming  FridayLive! schedule:
    March 1 John Sener returns
    March 8  MOOCs and sMOOChers
    March 15  There's an App for That 2.4
