Dico Krommenhoek's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:19 AM

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

Adventures in credentialling: OpenBadges, Open Badges and un-gamification

I have to admit that I have avoided OpenBadges until now, mostly through rightly or wrongly correlating them with gamification. I am not big on -ification of any kind but take particular issue with the addition of superficial motivation layers over unchanged, non-game-like content and the awarding of badges just for the hell of it (or under the guise of ‘engagement’). Which means I have mostly discounted the existence of OpenBadges.

 

Until now. Most of you are aware that for the last while I’ve been dabbling in wholly online delivery of professional development via Coffeecourses (which I realised to my dismay the other day is probably an accidental MOOC of sorts). However one sticking point with it has been the ability to track completion and offer credentialling.

The Hunt for the Google Reader Replacement

The Hunt for the Google Reader Replacement | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

Google will “retire” its RSS reader on July 1, incredibly annoying news for someone like me who has relied heavily on the service. I do so both as a writer and reader, checking my RSS feeds multiple times a day as I monitor the education-technology news as well as utilizing RSS to reach the thousands of subscribers to Hack Education.

I’ve been searching for a replacement to Reader since Google announced its impending closure mid-March, trying almost all of the popular alternatives and feeling frustrated with my options. With a couple weeks left before Reader closes, I’ve finally made my plans. I’m blogging about my decision here, in the hopes of helping others think through their feed-reader migration.
