2 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 2 Contents Web 2.0 Technologies (BK) Use in lectures & at conferences Benefits and Barriers Podcasting & SMIL (AS) What? How? Why? Pedagogical & Institutional Challenges (SW) What are the pedagogical reasons for this? What deployment strategies do we need?

3 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 3 About This Workshop About this workshop provides an opportunity : To make use of Web 2.0 technologies To discuss implications of WiFi in lecture theatres To experiment with technologies and tools which can be used during the ALT-C 2006 conference And if we have time we will also collaboratively : Explore use case scenarios for making use of networked technologies at events Explore the requirements for strategies for making use of networked technologies at events We also hope you will find the session enjoyable Introduction Note that is a blended event – and laptops are not essential

4 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 4 About The Facilitators Brian Kelly: Web adviser to UK HE/FE (and cultural heritage) sectors Based at UKOLN, University of Bath Adrian Stevenson: Works for Learning Technology Services Team, Internet Services, University of Manchester Experienced design & development of Web systems using HTML, XML & Web Services Scott Wilson: Assistant Director at CETIS, University of Bolton Special interest in standards for infrastructure and enterprise integration Introduction

5 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 5 About You Please briefly state: Your name and organisation Your interests in participating in this workshop What you hope to gain from the workshop Introduction E

6 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 6 Exploiting Technologies WiFi and Lecture Theatres: We're adding WiFi in lecture theatres Enthusiasts are exploiting this to enrich learning: Researchers (e.g. WWW ) Innovative e-learning events (e.g. ALT Spring School, 2006) The challenges: Keen students will do this – how do we respond? How can we enrich our own professional development at events such as ALT-C? How do we manage possible dangers? How do we apply the lessons to other areas? Technologies And Lecture Theatres

7 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 7 Takeup Of New Technologies The Gartner curve Developers Rising expectations Trough of despair Service plateau Enterprise software Large budgets … Chasm Failure to go beyond developers & early adopters (cf Gopher) Need for: Advocacy Listening to users Addressing concerns Deployment strategies … This session addresses approaches for avoiding the chasm Early adopters Technologies And Lecture Theatres

8 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 8 The Technologies Today you will have the opportunity to use / hear about: Wikis: social constructivist tools? Chat: learn by discussions with your peers (an end to "No talking at the back") Blogs: reflecting on your learning Social bookmarks: contribute to the group's resources Podcasting / Skype: Maximising access to the learning resources Technologies And Lecture Theatres

9 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 9 Using The Technologies (1) Exercise 1: About You We used a Wiki to record your details & interests Why? Records the discussion Allows us to revisit at end of session Allows others to see But: Centralised approach You should have responsibility for your own data The group should have trust in group contributions Technologies And Lecture Theatres

10 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 10 Using The Technologies (2) Exercise 2: About The Technologies Split into small groups and appoint a reporter (who has a laptop) Use the Wiki to summarise your group's views on The benefits of student use of networked applications in lecture theatres (Even-numbered groups) The dangers of student use of networked applications in lecture theatres (Odd-numbered groups) Technologies And Lecture Theatres NOTES Use separate Wiki page to avoid possible overwriting of content Note licence – information is provided with CC licence Backup flip charts are available!

11 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 11 Report Back Technologies And Lecture Theatres

12 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 12 The Facilitators Experiences Proactive use of Web 2.0 technologies has been used at several events: IWMW 2005 & 6 ALT Spring School 2006 UKOLN & CETIS events Evaluation has been very positive: IRC popular with small nos. (nb use on 7/7) Skype has been used with remote participants Wikis very popular for use in breakout groups Blogs have been used for event reports & notes (and subsequent evaluation by event organisers) Del.icio.us used at CETIS PLE event (now has 100s of resources, not just from the participants) Technologies And Lecture Theatres

13 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 13 Owen Stephens provides a comprehensive trip report in his Blogs at events Adrian Stevenson IWMW 2006 Blog was used to record notes for a subsequent article

14 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 14 The Suprglu aggregator brings together resources related to the event: Blog postings; photos; del.icio.us bookmarks; dynamic feeds; … (Note sometimes wrong stuff can be pulled in)

15 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 15 Next Steps At my events: Embedding best practices Building on AUP work Exploring physical issues (e.g. noisy laptop users away from non-users; location of power sockets; …) Supported blended learning (laptop & non- laptop users; etc.) More widely: Exploring additional areas (e.g. SMIL) Sharing lessons with others …

16 A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.uk 16 Summary We have: Seen examples of how Web 2.0 technologies can be used in lecture theatres – for students and at conferences Discussed benefits and barriers We will now: See how we can create Podcasts and SMIL presentations Discuss their possible benefits and disadvantages Conclusions
