More Technology

November 11, 2015 7:57 PM | David Bell

After attending last night's general meeting on Bring Your On Device (BYOB) with Larry Straining, I have a renewed appreciation for leveraging technology in the learning environment.  Larry shared with us many ideas on simple ways to use QR codes.  We learned that you can use QR codes for providing instructions, providing quizzes, delivering surveys, making assignments and many more creative ideas.  During the session, Larry also introduced us to other online tools to support learning through the use of technology.  

I did have a few surprises during the session.  I was really amazed at how many people indicated that they do not have a Twitter account.  I thought everyone had a Twitter account.  Though I have challenges with using Twitter at work, I have used it quite a bit during the past couple of years at conferences and meetings in what is called the "back channel".  Our meeting tweets can be found at #ATDHouston.  I'm not the most advanced technology person, but I do appreciate a tool that delivers ideas and information from a variety of sources.  I have even participated in a Twitter chat group on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. CST called #lrnchat.  I encourage you to try it out.

If you missed last evening's general meeting, be sure to make one of the upcoming Community Training Network (CTN) meetings around the city of Houston.  You will learn a lot and meet some fantastic people.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!
