OER19 revisited…

OER19 revisited

Use this:

I’m already looking forward to OER19, and I’m delighted that it will take place in the motherland.

Aye.

Of course, I couldn’t resist this little remix of the flyer when I first saw it. This is a product of Mathers third principle of Visual Thinkery – Curiosity must not come back empty-handed

Problematic Portraits

Problematic Portraits

Use this:

It seems that practically the whole of the known internet (more than 5 people) is busy doodling portraits of Colin Madland, who has very graciously offered up his face to artists for the purposes of visual experimentation, and thus inspired this comic strip.

I try to stay away from portraits, as it has often led to an awkward conversation, and reminded me that how a person sees their self is pretty warped to begin with. Indeed, I can’t help but see my face in terms of the things that aren’t even there – eyebrows, eyelashes, etc. You know I’ve always been a smooth operator…

Hey, I did this portrait of you!
Oh? I don’t think I really look like that.
Ah…

Sparks of Openness

sparks of openness

Use this:

Working in the open – it often feels counter-intuitive. What if someone criticises my half-baked idea? What if they make it stronger? What if someone dislikes the thing I’ve created? What if they really like it? What if they pinch the idea? What if they’re able to use the idea, or add theirs to it? 

Inspiration comes from others. Be an other.

From a conversation about Digital Literacies with We Are Open colleagues Grainne Hamilton and Doug Belshaw.

Moodlenet user testing

Moodlenet testing - Miles

Use this:

I’ve been participating in a Moodlenet design sprint (based on this process) all week facilitated by the wonderful people at Outlandish. It was lovely to be on the facilitated side for once, allowing me to focus on the visualisation of concepts. By day 3 we had collaboratively turned our words into wireframes and hacked together a proof of concept. For day 4, Doug Belshaw had invited individuals to conduct a user test. Here’s a visualisation of the test journey by his Hello-World-ness, Miles Berry.

Distribution of Innovation

Distribution of innovation

Use this:

Together with Doug Belshaw and WeAreOpen Co-op I’ve been working a micro-credentialing project with the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington D.C. On the second day of workshops we put together, we organised a succession of badge project “surgeries”. I captured some of the dialogue using live drawing – which we then evolved into the Credential Project Blueprint. Here’s one of the many doodles…
