T is for Topi

Openness. Badges. Digital Portfolios. Personal learning spaces. Learning Analytics.

Can anyone blend these features together, offering educators and learners and space where they can collaborate, where their privacy is respected, where a digital narrative of learning is really useful for students?

Just before leaving for Singapore where Slush will be taking place next week, Topi Litmanen tells us more about ClanEd – what it is, how it can be used by educators and what is coming soon to this transformative elearning tool.

Thank you Topi for your time and inspiring change from Helsinki!

Note:

There is a small glitch in the connection which I did not edit as I prefer simple streamlining –  apologies! 

J is for John

“… the internet has made a very low impact on the way a teacher teaches …”

“..the 5oo pound gorilla in the room is management or administration”

“Blogging? Don’t do it!”

“… online I am not the sage on the stage”

“… every time you have huge changes, you have huge resistance”

Thank you John for your time, your patience with tech glitches and your participation!
