Alternative Virtual Learning Environment

My contribution to #101 Creative Ideas

Contributor: Chris Jobling @cpjobling

Idea: Use Microsoft OneNote class notebook as a VLE and set yourself and your students free.

Practitioner comments: Students have access to my content on any device, I can annotate my notes in class, there’s a shared space for individual and group work, students can provide a portfolio of their work that is easy for me to mark and give feedback.

Credits: I was inspired to try it by Marjolein Hoekstra curator of OneNote Central (@OneNoteC)

#BYOD4L V – This Time it’s Personal

Bring Your Own Device for Learning HashtagBack in January for its fifth run is the excellent Bring Your Own Device for Learning (#BYOD4L) online CPD-fest. Covering the 5Cs, Connecting, Communicating, Curating, Collaborating and Creating, this “course” aims to share great ideas and build communities. Concentrating on portable educational technology that you can use with yourself, your colleagues and your students, you’re guaranteed to discover something that will enable you and them to be more effective. And at the same time you’ll find yourself becoming part of a growing community of like-minded souls.

I’ve participated three times already and it’s a really rewarding if hectic 5 days. This year’s facilitators will be Sheila MacNeil (@sheilamcn, Alex Spiers (@alexgspiersand Neil Withnell (@neilwithnell and they introduced the course by web-cast during yesterday’s final day of the ALT Winter Conference. You can find out more and a recording of the web-cast here:

The community has been invited to contribute so expect to see me there.
