I just mentioned you in a post in this community, so you may have already seen this. However, I love your work on the Education Arcade and it makes me so happy to know that you are creating such rich learning experiences. 

I also would love for you to take part in this community of people who are vlogging with reflective practice as the goal. Talk to you soon!

I am such a huge fan of what Michael Smith has been doing with his students in creating an Education Arcade, and I wanted to dedicate at least one thinking cycle to how inspired it makes me to create “hand-made learning”. Please watch what he is doing and if you haven’t seen Caine’s arcade, I highly recommend it as well.

Hand-Made Learning: Games, not Gamification

I have been inspired by Caine’s arcade for a while now, but I am not the only one. Michael Smith has also been inspired by the hand-made arcade, and has transformed it into a teaching and learning experience for his students. I encourage you to think about how you create hand-made learning experience for your learners, and how you can use games and play to create authentic experiences.

I just came across your Youtube Channel and your wonderful grmr.me, which I immediately tweeted out. Anyway, I am cultivating a group of youtubers on Google+ that engage in reflective practice with their videos. I wonder if you might be interested in joining and participating (or lurking, as the case may be). 

Looking forward to learning a lot from you.

Although Sheri Edwards hasn’t posted it here, she is a member of this community and I thought this poem and video were beautifully reflective:

Each of us: A Hub

Worlds within worlds

Family

Professional

Local –> Global

Each of us: A Hub

Reaching out

Gathering in

Making sense

Self –> Worlds

Each of us: A Hub

Spiraling

Connecting

Interacting

Worlds –> Worlds

Each and Together: Hubs

Communicating

Considering

Contributing

Remix –> Create

Each and Together: Hubs

Purpose and Action

Fluid Reactions

Worlds

Learning –> Change

Each and Together: Hubs

Linger here

Stay there

Learn and Act

Worlds –> Renewed

Who is in your Anti-PLN? Or, Avoiding TeamThink.

After thinking about the ways in which we can develop incredibly insulated learning networks, I wanted to create a way to find alternative voices. Eventually, I stumbled across the idea of creating a profile for the types of people that aren’t represented in my networks and then going after them.
