Making presentations for the web - Web 2.0 in Education

I wish the recording from Jordanhill had actually come out OK - in the end something must have happened to the recorder. However, now sitting in the office trying to respeak the presentation I gave I am struck with a horrible conundrum: I don't like the presentation I gave and want to produce a cleaner, better version that is clearer for everyone. The problem? It takes SO much time. This is why I like to write blogs more than produce podcasts - the production values are far lower. Anyway, I'm going to have a late lunch and that will hopefully give me the force to try again and see what comes out. It might end up being a series of mini-lecture movies, though.


Update: Managed to get it done, all 28MB of it. It can almost certainly do with many changes but it will give an impression for those who were there that day and want to remember the key points. Oh, and does this make my first vodcast?

Ewan,

Just a quick note to say I enjoyed your presentation at jordanhill last week and it has given me some great idea to use in my future classes.

Also it's nice to be able to access the lecture at home, gonna show the uni how to do it...lol

Andy.

Never mind the podcast, vodcast ...........have you heard about the godcast?! It's got the bible in klingon. Now that's a first!!

'Vodcast' has always made me groan a little. But the bible in Klingon, that must get a few hits!

Not quite sure what a godcast is, I caught a kid having a web chat with god does that count?

Ewan, this screeencast is amazing! I was blown away several times. So much so I had to blog about it. Thanks for sharing!

Ewan, I think this is great. You have made some great points here. Keep up the good work!

Lovely stuff Ewan.
I really enjoyed it and have lots to chew over.
Would be a great first port of call for folk interested in the read-write web as well as folk who are messing about with it.
I don't suppose you are going to post a transcript? It would be handy to quote, review etc.

I don't know if it would be of interest on the ICT in Education website - you seem to think so - but I will be making an MFL-specific version for the MFLE (https://www.ltscotland.org.uk/mfle). When I do that a transcript is essential for our deaf users. I will aim to get one done for this the moment I find time - maybe this weekend. Thanks for the comment, John. It means a lot to have someone back home get something out of it!

Where is this vodcast? ;)
Regards,
Greg

Well FWIW, I've just converted to an mp3 so I can listen to it on the ipod (no video 4th gen). So the text will be great.
Veering off, what is the intro/outro? (Sounds a bit like Dennis Bovell)

Looking forward to you putting the video back online.

Sorry 'bout that - the video was there on the graphic but in doing that I managed to delete the link on the text. It's all back up now! Sorry! Transcript on its way.

No worries. It's still linked to the image though.

Like Kenneth says it seems the link is not back up. It still only shows the jpeg.

I managed to catch it two days ago, and it is as insightful and clearly thought out as I have come to expect of you Ewan - keep up the good work.

Ewan,
Thanks for a great presentation! I really enjoyed it. I am thinking about these issues and how to invite/encourage our group of ESL teachers to get into web 2.0. Any ideas or advice you could offer?

I know not everyone is interested in the internet and using 2.0 as teaching tools, and I don't pretend to force anyone to use them, but I do wonder, how best to present this stuff so they atleast consider it.

Hello Ewan

Just to let you know, I finally got around to adding the links to the video of our presentations. Let me know what you think. Personally, I think it's a bit scary seeing and hearing yourself on video.

I loved this web presentation! It is simple and easy to understand but provokes a lot of thought about education vs. learning. I'm passing it on to my teachers, hoping it will a similar impact on them and their classrooms. Thank you so much!

hi Ewan,

Very exciting presentation - I felt that the bit at the end where you linked 9 educational principles to the guided use of blogs, podcasts, etc. represented a bridge between the traditional and the new that could have a wide appeal. I'll take it to school and ask who wants to watch. Thanks. Have to run fast myself to keep up.

Hi Ewan,
I attended your Web 2.0 seminar at Glasgow and really enjoyed it. I downloaded the a previous video on the topic and found it very interesting as well. I was wondering if you could upload your presentation used at SETT so that I can share your views with my colleages here in Uruguay.
Many thanks,
Maximo

This was a great presentation. I appreciate not being riddled with bullet points. I really want to know more about the "nine functions of student improvement" -- is that from a paper somewhere? Thanks!

David Muir knew straight off where they had come off - I had read it somewhere and hopefully had delicioused it. But I can't find it now ;-) I'll ask David when I see him soon...

David Muir to the rescue. He suggests this:

I used a similar idea, but based it on extracts from the
Dearing report and "Seven Principles For Good Practice" instead.
