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 ….
I’m looking forward to facilitating on BYOD4L this week (15th to 19th January 2018).
BYOD4L is a bite-size facilitated open course offered over 5 days for educators and students in HE but also anybody else who would like to learn with us as to how we can utilise our digital media and devices for professional, lifelong and lifewide learning.
Judging by the organisation team hangout that we had on Friday it’s going to such a giggle. (Sheila MacNeill, Alex Spiers, Neil Withnell and Suzanne Faulkner) I already know the lovely Sheila, Alex and Neil of course but haven’t met Suzanne yet in person so it was a real pleasure to get to talk with her virtually… I am already in awe of her juggling skills and have found a kindred spirit in our love of bitmoji ….
I managed to do my little introduction video yesterday which I did on my iPad and edited with I Movie. I also popped some quick google slide images as some title cards. I must admit I had to eventually ask for help from my 13year old when it came to some of the more whizzy bits for editing … wish I had asked him earlier actually … he was flying around the iMovie app so much quicker than me …I knew he could use it but I just didn’t know how well … I’ll know for next time !
I’ve been involved with BYOD4L now for the last four years and every year I always learn something new and meet some more amazing people. I’m looking forward to seeing how things turn out with the extension of the original 5c Framework (as created by the BYOD4L Creators the lovely duo Chrissi Nerantzi and Sue Beckingham) this time around as we now have 10 c’s for the price of 5 (as it were !)….

there will be a tweetchat each night at 8pm (follow hashtag #BYOD4Lchat ) and look out for live periscopes too !
I’ll also be using padlet to keep a record my contributions together in one place for the week so if you would like to take a look at that please feel free.
I’m also hoping to get a few more people involved at Swansea this time around, I know there are definitely one or two that might be on board so we will see how that goes …
I’ve made another quick padlet for that in anticipation !
Hoping to see you all on line as from Monday … do let me know if you are joining in the fun and games …

Day Two of the #BYOD4L was all about Communicating. We had a fab tweet chat last night as you can see from Sheila MacNeill‘s storify … ( even starring my lovely little kittie ! )
I’ve been up to my eyes today so havent really had time to reflect any further at the moment. I’ll probably do this in a sum up post at the end of the week but in the meantime I made a very quick video of the tools yesterdy that I have been using this time around … ( with that rather snazzy Videoscribe
that I’m loving ) I have just realised though that I should also have included Videoscribe itself in the tools list … what a donut … there are probably loads of others that I have used this week or am going to use that didn’t make it into my list so apols for that … )
