Lisa Harris introduced me to Slideshare via Linked In, and I have found it an extremely helpful tool in linking me to a number of presentations that others have put up, providing great material which when pulled from a variety of sources, can provide great material for lectures – and more specifically – for putting forward the pedagogical rationale for Blended Learning/the use of technology in learning (I’m a big fan of making the technology as invisible as possible, and looking for ways to remove the barriers, but sometimes there’s a learning curve, and we have to decide if the outcomes are worth it).
For businesses, investing (time, often, rather than visible finance) is key, and leads to positive outcomes. Here is one of Lisa’s many enlightening presentations:
I look forward to meeting Lisa face-to-face again soon, before too long! We met at Winchester Web Scene.
