  49. @CliveYoungUCL social normalisation of technology… Do we think of paper and pen as a technology… Prob not. #alt2013

  57. Lean coffee mentioned – will look into this – #altc2013
  58. @digitalfprint @sheilmcn @helenbeetham @daveowhite tech is not intrinsically bad or good. It’s the use of it that determines this #altc2013
  59. Making open systems work sessions about to start… #altc2013
  60. @AndyBeggan 5 ebooks on iTunes Author.eBooks seemed to encourage a higher quality of resource instead of just being resources #altc2013
  61. apple (some free ebooks) versus Amazon (charges for ebooks) due to differences. means Oer materials harder via amazon. #altc2013

  64. RSS feeds glue which squirts information around cMOOCs #altc2013
  65. #ALTc2013 DS106 is clearly the the course of choice – @HallyMk1 @dkernohan and now Matthew Hawksley recommends as well!
  66. Top mistake. Don’t use an email list to introduce themselves… I suggest Social/Buddpress/Forums more suited for 14k people. #altc2013

  77. @sarahhorrigan oh dear… Some more digging about why would be interesting #altc2013
  78. Talk 346 arguing that the conventional lecture format is ‘on the way out’ …. hummm … wishful thinking?…#altc2013
  79. @skillsacademic I think so… Large number of lectures going on still
  80. “For tech skills to be acquired by students need to be integrated into work” Same for staff development? #altc2013…

  89. ‘Maximising Moodle’ project…total of 77-80 students in 28 focus groups in 3 countries. That’s a lot of work! #qualityevaluation #altc2013
  90. @becksell2001 perhaps… Something that overlays direct rather than an small window (tablet/phone) into AR seems like next step. #altc2013
  91. MOODLE inspiration sessions @UniofNottingham … Academics talking to academics more convincing #altc2013
  92. Can the #MOOC format respond to the educational challenges #altc2013?
  93. I like to think of the learning technologist role as a bridge…Echoing one option that Tunde Varga-Atkins and Philip Walker think #altc2013
  94. @sheilmcn I’d be pedantic and say technology is value neutral. It’s the use that has value or habits associated with it #altc2013
