So much inertia to do undertake additional creative work outside my school and work
I’m Yeeloong, currently a second degree student doing interaction design in British Columbia, Vancouver! Was previously doing engineering back in Singapore in Nanyang Technological university. What a change of fields XD.
I like to interests myself with domain areas related to augmented reality, user experience design, interface design and interaction design. I’m currently in my final stretch of school and is working at a start up in Vancouver as their primary designer providing tech solutions. =) Looking forward to actually participating in the coming weeks. =)
Kaloe (pronounce as «ka-loy») here from City of Dasmarinas, Philippines, i was a part of LCL 1, but, sadly, i was not able to finished it due to job/work conflict. Well, for LCL2 i’m looking forward to finish this, with you guys, be my guide, my mentor or teacher, i’ll gladly accept your inputs.. basically, I’m here to learn the creative learning.
back here, i’m a full time employee of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute, working as a Technical Services Unit Head for ICT department for 9 years.. and a part time faculty for College of Nursing, teaching Information Technology & Nursing Informatics.
I’m really excited about how augmented reality can enhance learning. I know Oculus Rift is more virtual reality than augmented reality usually, but Oculus Rift and similar is pretty interesting tech. We had guests demo their kits at my hackerspace recently.
Wow! Congrats to Pali STEAM Shop!! Hail from Knox Makers on the other coast! Best of luck to you all, the «make the makerspace» program sounds entirely awesome. May they go forth and sprout a multitude of other ‘spaces on their own afterwards!
Yeah that will be awesome, I’m more interested in google glass though. Not just for enhance learning, but I like the idea of making technology work for us without swarming us with needless technology in all facets of our life. Better decision making? Info visualization? etc.
Hello, all my professional life I’ve been working in educational stuff, but I’m not a teacher, I’m a consultant for teaching materials for use in education.
Most of time I have seen nice and well designed products and I have seen too well designed teaching methodologies that take advantage of they. Behind of both (materials and methodologies) I have seen always good teachers, people who likes their work. But sometimes I have found bad materials, bad methodologies, frustrated teachers and unhappy students.
This background had encourage me to know something more about teaching and learning process, to talk a lot with teachers and to try to live closely their experiencies.
My name is Karen Budde (Boo-dah). I teach Latin online through the VTVLC. I was lucky enough to stumble upon LCL1 last year. So excited to be part of this year’s group.
Welcome back, it seems luck has returned for us! I managed to stumble into the LCL experience last year, too. Luckily, it looks like it wasn’t the last LCL.
VTVLC looks like a fairly large cooperative. What do you think of the online learning environment they use? Any favorite features educators have access to?
The LMS is Moodle so teachers can build in chat times and discussion forums. I actually teach two sections of Middlebury Latin. VTVLC is really excellent for supporting students in mastery learning if they fall off the pacing chart.
