ECEL 09 in Bari, Italy

plotting research

Last conference of 2009 for me – no more papers to present until next year. This time I spoke about communication technologies, choosing amongst them – we had a lively debate about the merits and demerits of blogs, wikis, livechat, message boards and dear old email. I was reflecting on these delights in relation to power, status, relationship to VLE and various other dimensions. Just part of the everyday teacher job to sort out what fits best. All agreed that more than 3 comms channels was immensely confusing – advice needed. Yet another idea set to work into a paper.

Most of the benefit of this conference to me was making connections, old and new and moving them towards a research project idea, watch this space.
