Learning with 'e's: The #blideo list

Learning with 'e's: The #blideo list | Alternative Professional Development | Scoop.it
Sue Beckingham's insight:

"Hot on the heels of the popular #blimage post challenge (See here for almost 200 posts), where people send each other images and write learning related blogs about them, we now have #blideo (I think Alex Bellars should be credited with coining the phrase). This is a new challenge where people send each other short video clips and challenge each other to write learning related blogs. The trick is to then choose another short video clip, and pass it on to others as a challenge. In this way, we can encourage each other to blog to share our ideas and thoughts. It's video. It's a blog. What's not to love? It's a moving experience. The entire learning community benefits, people discover new sites, think more deeply about their professional practice, and (hopefully) creativity is unleashed. Below are some of the first #blideo blog challenge responses." Steve Wheeler

A curation of #blimage blog posts by Steve Wheeler

 

"The #blimage challenge was started as a bit of fun between Amy Burvall and I. We started it on July 18th and it has been growing steadily ever since with many of our friends and colleagues participating. The challenge is this: Send an image to friends in your personal learning network and ask them to write a learning related blog post about it. They then challenge their friends with an image of their choice. All the posts are labelled with the hashtag #blimage (blog-image) so they can be easily discovered and aggregated. Since the start of activities, the following posts and other artefacts related to #blimage have been posted. Several are destined to become classics of educational blogging." Steve Wheeler
