My journey through MALAT

Into the Mystic (Or: How I learned to get over myself and offer my OER to the greater good)

When student works are openly licensed, granting 5R permissions in their use of artifacts, each work becomes the beginning of an ongoing conversation in which other learners participate as they contextualize and extend the work in support of their learning…. Continue Reading →

Video killed the radio star (or: how Edtech is going to steal my job)

I might be dating myself here, but I remember when MTV (or Much Music in Canada) came on the scene. With it came a whole new revolution in music. We, in fact, became known as the MTV generation. With it… Continue Reading →

Reflection on Reflective Leadership

As I sat down to write this post on digital leadership I found myself in two worlds.  On the one hand, I am an educator at a technical institution. I teach an entry-level trades program, an apprenticeship program, and an… Continue Reading →

Late to the party.
