Two years ago, I was asked to do a co-keynote with Graham Attwell in Barcelona for the inaugural PLE Conference. At that time, Graham and I decided to crowdsource our ‘unkeynote/keynode’ and to invite participation from anyone who wanted to contribute to the live conversation. The original call is found here. The contributions from others were amazingly creative and generous, and we both felt that the experiment was a success.
This July 12 to 13, Joyce Seitzinger is organizing a PLE Conference to take place in Melbourne, Australia (concurrent to the European strand) and I have been asked to participate as one of the keynote speakers. I am hoping to facilitate something similar to the 2010 unKeynote/Keynode experience.
So, if you have a few spare minutes, this is where I could really use your help.
The question that I am hoping to facilitate is, “Why do (social) networks matter in teaching & learning?”. To help answer this question, I am hoping that people will do one of the following things:
- Submit a short video or audio clip (between 30 seconds and 1 minute in length) that helps to answer this question.
- Submit a single PowerPoint or Keynote slide or image that in some way represents your response.
- Respond to this question on your blog or similar personal space.
- Respond to this question via Twitter using the hashtag #WhyNetworksMatter.
