Educational Technology Creative Collective – Preliminary Task January 8, 2012Posted by ianinsheffield in edtechcc, Musings.

is a collaboration of educators investigating and experimenting with digital technologies to enhance education.
It’s about exploring creativity and sharing those experiences within a community of like-minded educators. That appeals to me in a number of ways. Despite advancing years, I seem to be gaining an increasing thirst for learning and I believe that’s best undertaken socially, within a supportive environment, yet at times and in places to suit the learner. That might be in the evening on the sofa with a glass of light refreshment, in the morning on the bus on the way to work or sitting around a table (in a cafe/pub?) at or after a conference/meeting. Or indeed whilst out cycling! It’s only in recent years that all those opportunities have become fulfilled through the new technologies which have become available.
I’m always scanning for interesting applications which offer new potential as learning tools; a part of my job which I thoroughly enjoy. I guess it’s the seeking and finding, exploring and testing, communicating and sharing. Hopefully Edtechcc will offer the chance to do that with others and therefore enjoy a richer and deeper learning experience as a consequence.
There’s a little more information on the ‘About Me’ and ‘My Digital Tracks’ pages – the LinkedIn account gives a potted history.
Looking forward to enjoying our connections
