Dear friends,

Wow! Day 1 is now (almost) over and we are getting ready for Day 2. It is so so lovely to see so many of you engaging already, sharing experiences via Twitter and Google+. Many of you have set-up a brand new portfolio and have started reflecting on the experience. This is so wonderful and we really hope that this journey will lead to new and exciting discoveries.

Our first Tweetchat on Monday (Storify here, thank you Sheila for putting this together!) with Neil and Alex,  but also all of you who participated, was a huge success and brought many different voices together. It enabled us to make some new connections and strengthen some of the existing ones. For many it was the first time on Twitter or participating in a Tweetchat. Loads of sharing happened and we felt part of the extended BYOD4L family. We hope this reflects your experience too and you will be back for more. It might be useful to ‘warn’ your followers that you are participating in a tweetchat if you intend to come back for more.

If you just discovered BYOD4L and are wondering what this is all about, here is a quick reminder. BYOD4L or Bring Your Own Device For Learning is an open bite-size learning event offered over five days to help us use the smart devices we have for learning, teaching and/or personal/professional development. Tuesday is our second day. 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 COMMUNICATING – Here you will find two scenarios to reflect upon and three suggested activities to complete. Feel free to add further scenarios and suggest other activities too.

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.

Remember that your reflections will become richer when you share them and engage in a conversation around them. Comment on what others say and invite others to comment on your reflections too.

Join our TweetChat between 8-9pm GMT by searching for #BYOD4Lchat on Twitter. This is a great opportunity to connect synchronously with colleagues from around the world.

We look forward to learning together.
