Might as Well Get Weird With It

This past weekend saw Toronto host, for the second year in a row, the 2018 Creative Commons Global Summit. I attended last year as a participant but this year I wanted to do a little more by submitting a proposal to run a session about The Open Patchbooks. Rumour has it that my proposal arrived to CC as the very first submission. Fact has it that my session was accepted (YAY!) and slotted in as the very last presentation. Sunday evening […]

One Set of Infinity

This is a response to Loop It from the Ontario Extend Activity Bank: Highlight  a topic or concept for _____________, math, literature, philosophy, etc., by creating one of those looping GIF things. I always thought that a great use of the under appreciated GIF could be to have them looping all over the place at a gym rather than diagrams of how to perform an exercise. I had to find the silliest exercise video I could to make examples. And that […]

Did I happen to mention I’m im#PRESSED18?

The PressEd Conference (still going as I’m putting this together) was today. It’s a conference on Twitter, about WordPress in education. No travel. No expenses. No fees. Maybe not even pants. THERE WAS SO MUCH COOL STUFF. Take the rest of the year off and sort through #pressedconf18. What better way to collect the stuff from my presentation than on WordPress (good suggestion, fellow #pressedconf18 presenter, Alan Levine!) Here’s my collection of tweets about Ontario Extend. Welcome to @ontarioextend, #PressEdConf18!Mike and […]

Walk, Don’t Run

There’s no rush. This week in the Ontario Extend East Cohort, we are kicking off the Collaborator Module. There’s a high chance that you haven’t finished any of the previous three, yet. And that is more than okay. This is open learning. The modules are there waiting for you to go back to them when you’re ready. One of the main influences to the way Ontario Extend was built and is delivered is something called ds106, a wonderful community/way of life. Its […]

I’d Like This Better If It Looked Like That

This tiny post is a response to the Ontario Extend Technologist module activity “Tell a Tiny Tech Tale” where you share a little software thing that you find helpful. Mine is not new and likely widely known, but I just use it so much and it is a very satisfying tool to use: The Format Painter aka Make This Look Like That. Select some stuff that you like the look of for something else, click on the format painter, and […]

Enter Stage Right

This post is a response to the What’s In It For Me? activity in the Ontario Extend Teacher for Learning Module. Brainstorm a list of WIIFM (what’s in it for me?) from a student perspective. If you can’t think of more than “because you should know it,” then you need to talk to your students and get a better sense of where they are in their learning and where they are going. So I will WIIFM from the perspective of someone […]

It’s the Tortoise, Not the Hare

I was just sitting there making my way through the Ontario Extend Teacher for Learning module, and lo and behold! I see a link that says “Take it to The Bank”. What’s this then? I put my take on the activity right there? Ok! This is my response! Misunderstood Identify a concept that is often misunderstood in your discipline. Can you think of an analogy that can help make the concept make sense to students? My discipline is educational technology so […]

We Go Down East

The University of Alberta Ski Team put on a fundraising party in the fall of 2002-ish. Being of the “drinking team with a skiing problem” mentality, they had themselves a fun slogan to print on the tickets. We Go Down Fast The only reason I still remember this is because the ticket printers made a little mistake and printed something else. We Go Down East Why did they think “we go down east” was a ticket-worthy slogan? They must have […]

Take Note

I am currently in the process of collecting exemplars of the Ontario Extend module activities for an in-development activity bank. It’s looking pretty slick thanks to the Internet construction machine that is Alan Levine (aka cogdog). Stay tuned for that! I thought it couldn’t hurt to do a couple myself. This is the last one, I swear! I did one yesterday, too. This is my take on the Extend activity at the bottom of this page in the Teacher for […]
