Well, this is the second time I have written this blog post as for some reason WordPress decided it didn’t want to save my ramblings as ususal … anyhow.. I’ve managed to rescue some of it and have added some more rambles …
I just wanted to say (again ) that although #BYOD4L is over for another year, the community itself however is still very much alive and kicking !
Friday proved to be yet another fab exchange of ideas in our tweetchat.
I must admit though that I found it quite challenging at times trying to facilitate between posting the Questions and juggling the Tasks. I had to resort quite a few times to asking Alex and the rest of the lovely #BYOD4L team which one we were supposed to be on !
The wonderful community that is #BYOD4l embraced the whole thing as usual and contributed and shared so many ideas , images and resources in such a creative way … Check these fab ones out from the lovely Suzanne, Neil and Kerry 🙂
Scott did us a couple of his fab visualisations too of the various exchanges showing the range of our community .. if you want to see more of Scotts clever stuff like this check out his blog
There were so many things that I was inspired by that are simply too many to mention but a key ‘moment’ if you pardon the pun was when my lovely colleague Chris Jobling gave an impromptu ‘how to’ session on how to use Twitter Moments … and in true fashion modelling what he talks about he has made a moment … I’ve embedded it here as its brill 🙂 I will be experimenting with moments very soon ! In the meantime … enjoy this one Chris prepared earlier …
There is also a storify of the tweet chat available ( although of course this wont be available for ever…)
In celebration of the fact that we have the collaborating and community theme going on today, I did a periscope this morning …. aided by my lovely roomie Rhian…we just did a very quick hello but I thought I would share some thoughts … so
a couple of quick reflections from me …
Save to Camera Roll Settings
I forgot to change my settings to autosave the video to my camera roll ( it will disappear from Persicope after 24hrs) I’ve now done this for the next one …
As a workaround though, I used this helpful link that I found online http://www.downloadperiscopevideos.com/ which allowed me to copy and paste my periscope URL link ( which I found by searching for my name on Persiscope TV on my PC ) into a box and then click a button to magically download the file. I then uploaded that resulting file to my You Tube account .. ( there may be an easier way ! )
Send out a tweet beforehand …
I did however remember to send out a tweet ( but only just ) to let people know
Read some stuff
I wish I had read this really helpful article from Donna Moritz ( @sociallysorted) before I did it … I’ve also found this other good article from Mike Paul (pikemalltech.com) that has some tips for educators using Periscope.
Periscope is kinda cool with a buddy aka my lovely pal Rhian Ellis(@rhianellis3 )
I may not make this evening’s tweetchat, in full but I will be back tomorrow ! Happy Collaborating ….
