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.  Diogo Casanova, Nick Botfield, Dejan Ljubojevic and Mike Nicholson organised an excellent tweetchat that brought us all together, with some challenging questions.

In true collaborative spirit a couple of new collaborative creations have developed: A Book of Cs and the BYOD4L Song are in the making! Do join in and add with these and be sure to add your name as a collaborator. These collaborative projects can be found here:

The storify for collaborating is HERE

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 suggested activities to engage with.  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.

Please make sure you have on your device and you are able to use the basics. If you need some help reach out to the community! This will be our very last tweetchat and we hope you will be able to join us and enjoy it 😉 It might be a bit different… it usually is… 

We look forward to Day 5 together.
