BYOD, Bring Your Own Device is the theme of many workshops here and they present tools that works on all types of phones, tablets etc.
An unsolved detail still is: How distribute an URL to an audience in a really quick way during a workshop? Does anyone know the answer?
I attended a workshop with mobile activities led by Shelly Terrell. We collaborated with Google Docs, QR codes, our cameras and some other tools. The tools I remember from the workshops are the tools that I tried out. Doing really helps to remember.
I also attended a BYOD workshop about GIS and GPS combined with Google Forms for educational use. Very interesting. The students go out in a city or in nature, collect geographical data using a form on their mobile device. Back in the classroom all of the data is visualized and analyzed on a GIS map.
MOOC is mentioned all the time (remember, this blog was part of a MOOC in 2010). I met a colleague to a former MOOC classmate at the conference. She had a poster about how to work with formative assessment in e-learning.
She also told me there where digital badges involved, I was very glad to hear this.
I watched a fantastic 3D-film about protein synthesis!
As with most things nowadays, content alone is not the reason for going to a conference like this. The content you can reach (maybe even more easily) from home by surfing.
The point of going to a conference like this, according to me, is the things around the content, the coffee breaks, lunches and dinners and social media networks where you discuss the content.
