Guest Lecture at Massey University

Written by David on July 30th, 2013.      0 comments

I was approached in the recent school holidays to give a guest lecture on e-learning to the Post Graduate Diploma ITE students at Massey University.  My schedule is pretty full this term, so Graham and I had to do a bit of jiggling with our respective schedules in order for me to speak to the students.  Today I gave the lecture, the audience were very attentive and I hope as they start to form their own personal pedagogies and classroom management strategies, I have given much food for thought about how our connected kids are wired differently, how our students are predisposed to multi-media content and how gaming is genuine problem solving. 

Next steps?  I would really like to work with Graham and his team to integrate e-learning into their teaching programme so that the teachers that emerge qualified from Massey already know how elearning works, how to integrate it into their class programmes and how to manage elearning in their classrooms.


Explain Everything Showcase

I have been making a range of free tutorials recently.  As I have been creating them I have been publishing them to my You Tube channel and then promoting them via my Twitter account.  Last week I also posted a link to some of my tutorials onto the Facebook pages of the app developers.  One in particular got back to me, Explain Everything and have asked if they can use my tutorials about their product on their showcase page.  I, of course, accepted and now my videos are on the Explain Everything page.  So if you want some tutorials made to help other learn how to use some app, web resource or programme, just let me know and I will add it to the list.
