I have had a reasonably relaxed weekend for once, running a few errands, watching some rugby and watching some football. All this has meant that some of the things that I had planned to do were put to the side including getting involved in #appsharelive and also in #sltchat.
Thankfully though this is not a complete loss. Through the wonders of technology I can see what happened in #appsharelive via the youtube via of the event. I can follow what happened in #sltchat via Storify. It is not the same as actually being there in the moment, and of being involved however it is far better than having missed the events altogether.
We now live in an “on demand” world where we can preview and review events as and when we see fit. Yet in education we continue to have lessons which occur with set hours within the day. Each lesson focuses on a specific subject.
The question is how can we use technology to leverage the need for “on demand” content? Flipped leassons may be one approach however I am sure there are others.
