Dear friends,

Wow! Day 1 is now  over and we are all set for Day 2. It is 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 last  was a great success was a huge success and brought many different voices together.  You can catch up via this Storify. 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. As ever lots of sharing happened and we all 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 & CAPABILITY – 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. Do include the course hashtag #BYOD4L  in all Tweets, Blog posts and Instagram photos you create. We’ll be on periscope at around 9.30am  today too with another intro to the day and reflection on yesterday. If you are wondering where to start with digital capability why not check out the Jisc Digital Capabilities Framework.

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.

We’re hoping that you will be able to 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 another day of  learning together.

The BYOD4L team @byod4l
