#BYOD4l 2018 Day 4 Collaborating and Community

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 ….

#BYOD4L Collaborating – New Friends in the Lunchbreak ….

Googlehangout with Sam and Isobel


Just took part in my first ever live googlehangout for #BYOD4L with Sam Illingworth and Isobel Gowers  – what a fabulous way to spend a lunch hour …

So what did I learn ?

Well….I learnt that you can screen share using Googlehangouts …….that Isobel and I were already twitter friends but I hadn’t recognised her without her horse ! ……and that you can add weird and wonderful things to enhance your look ( here is a sneaky pick in case you missed Sam’s additions in the video ! )

Isobel and horse !
Isobel and horse !
Sam does fancy dress
Sam and his fancy dress

So what else did I learn ?

I learnt that collaborating with others involves a willingness to reach out and share and be brave and ask ! The people I have met in the Open world have all been so giving and generous with their time. #BYOD4L has been a great way to meet even more like minded souls and hopefully collaborate on other things …. watch this space.

OEr15Oh and I even managed to get in a quick shameless plug for the OER15 Conference that I am helping to organise with the lovely Chrissi and OER15 Planning Committee which is a great example of collaboration if ever I saw one. OERConf will be really pleased !

As a project manager I simply couldn’t function without the generous time and energy that other people give to collaborate with me. So for me collaboration whether face to face or online is simply awesome !

PS I also learnt that I really should wear some makeup while doing a googlehangout #oops
