Quant + Qual

On creating some Visual Thinkery for Tabetha at Timmus, our conversation touched on the differences between quantitative and qualitative analysis. Here’s a visualisation of that thought.

You know, I’m always learning from my clients…

Open Badges 2.0

I attended the badge summit in London last week. I had the opportunity to visually digest the chatter from different speakers regarding V2 of the Open Badges spec. If you have a look at how the standard is described, you hopefully agree that abstract things need all the visualisation help they can get…

The Principles of Makery

As I thought about the making process behind my Raspberry Pi being installed as protector of my shed from overheating, I found myself wondering (as I do) about the principles of Makery. Here are three that came to mind in the building of this project.

If you think of others, let me know…

Pathways

Gold, Silver, Bronze, yawn…

This (standard) approach prevents the issuing organisation from having to think too deeply about how learners might interact with what they’ve got to offer.

Creating the conditions for learning

I was struck by a comment by Will Richardson on twitter, about creating the conditions for learning. He’d replied to an image I’d created after I watched him present some time ago.

In my mind’s eye, I saw a boat, subject to the weather conditions, but supported underneath by the ocean…

CC attribution

My brother often corrects my grammar. It’s as easy to get it right as to get it wrong… he would say. Even though I find this mildly irritating, especially as he’s my younger sibling, he’s quite right – and secretly I upgrade my grammar without giving him any satisfaction, only to knowledgeably correct others on the same point.
