Dear friends,

So far we have all been on a high from the beginning of this week. We have plenty of evidence that learning in the open can be exciting, stimulating and engaging. Learning with others is possible if we make it personal and find bridges to connect with others in meaningful ways. When we show interest and also reach out and help others. Last night’s tweetchat was another fast rollercoaster and helped us all to discuss and debate collaboration but also cooperate and collaborate. Julie, David H and Sam organised an excellent tweetchat that brought us all together, one more time.

If you just discovered BYOD4L or Bring Your Own Device For Learning this is a short introduction to it. BYOD4L is an  open bite-size facilitated learning event offered over 5 days. Today is our last day but still plenty of time to join in! Each day we will focus on a different topic. You can also choose to move between the topics at a time convenient to you. For each topic you should go to the topic page.

Today’s topic is CREATING – Here you will find two scenarios to reflect upon and three plus one suggested activities to engage with. You will find the plus one or bonus activity under 4 😉 We are very very excited as we will be joining up with Sheila MacNeill and friends today who are currently offering the open learning event CGU Games on linked to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. We are bringing participants from both events together to share creations via Twitter in the spirit of the Games. This activity is open throughout the day. For further details about this and the other activities, please check out the Creating Topics page.

Feel free to add further scenarios and suggest other activities too.

What is the added bonus when making stuff together? Something to think about in the context of this topic.

Go to the Tools page to learn about the tools we recommend you engage with to reflect upon the activities you complete. Add your suggestions in the comments section.

Do include the course hashtag #BYOD4L  in all Tweets, Blog posts and Instagram photos you create.

Join our TweetChat between 8-9pm GMT by searching for #BYOD4Lchat on Twitter. There will be a pre-tweetchat activity so please check out Twitter about an hour before the very last Tweetchat.

We look forward to learning together.
