Drafts that will never get written

Inspired by friend and colleague Debbie Baff’s “Homeless blog posts“, I’ve just had a look at my own WordPress draft posts folder. I clearly had things that I wanted to say 3 months ago and I had a critique of HEA fellowship (still not resolved) a month ago. I also haven’t posted anything that wasn’t a tweet since March 2.

My #BYOD4L Story (Part 1)

In advance of the fifth run of bring your own device for learning (#BYOD4L) and inspired by Sheila McNeil’s post “#BYOD4L A story of personal and professional needs and wants“, I thought that I too would reflect on my experience of my last three #BYOD4Ls.

I note that I was sticking my nose in quite early!

For curation, it looks like I was favouring these tools:

Reviewing these today, Diigo, is being updated automatically, I’m an inactive curator on Anne Hole’s BYOD4L Flipboard, I’m still using “favourites” on twitter but have stopped using Pocket, Pearltrees and Evernote!

I’ve had a dig around the Google+ site and Twitter but can’t find anything that I actually created that first outing, but here are a couple of shares that are worth revisiting:

And some opinions that I expressed:

As this post is already getting quite long and #LTHEChat 72 is about to start, I’ll stop there, and continue this story in Part 2 tomorrow.
