I’m currently struggling to upload an MP3 file to this so will just have to go ahead with a link only.  I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I’d taken part in a panel discussion on various topics.  One of these was the idea of the digital native or immigrant as put forward by Mark Prensky in 2002.  The other members of the panel were James Clay, Dave Sugden, Dave Foord and Nick Jeans.

James has managed to edit the file and it is now available on eLearning stuff.  As you can see from James’ post he is blaming Nick’s poor audio quality on skype – actually it’s because he’s from Sheffield.  (sorry Nick!)

I spent an interesting and useful hour this morning on a Skype conference call with colleagues from all over the country.  The idea which we had initially discussed at the JISC conference in March was for an eLearning podcast but a very informal and chatty one.  It was all hosted and co-ordinated by non other than James Clay who is pretty well known on the eLearning scene and featured in an earlier post with his video from ALT-C. He did all the techy recording stuff and five of us just chatted – though apparently I need to work on my levels!  Hopefully, we’ll get a couple of 15 minutes sessions which we can publish.  We chatted briefly about the Learning for Living and Work projects which have been going on in the North West and Yorkshire and Humber and on the ‘Digital Native, Digital Immigrant’ debate which is covered in just about everybody’s blogs – see links below.  We’re hoping to do this on a weekly basis and to bring in lots of other eLearning folks also.  For those who cannot see any use for Jaiku, this was arranged and organised on there.  The final thing will be published on James’ blog – eLearning Stuff. The five of us were, as well as me and James,  Dave Sugden elearning consultant and general good chap, based in Huddersfield, Dave Foord another eLearning consultant from Loughborough (I think),  and Nick Jeans an eLearning professional from Sheffield – no online presence yet but wait for it.  Thanks guys – as the saying goes – I think it’s got legs.
