Learning2gether Episode 339
On Saturday July 30 Learning2gether hung out in Hangout in two presentations (where the presenters had sent invitations) which were part of the 24 Hour online edcamp Global July 29th-30th 2016.
Unlike the traditional edcamp, edCamp Global mounted sessions for 24 hours that accommodate any schedule across the globe. In their words, “We are looking forward to educators collaborating with the whole world. Registration will open and the schedule will be available as facilitators volunteer.” For more information:
Learning2gether attended these two sessions:
Sat July 30 Jim Buckingham at edCamp Global 2016 – Digital Badges
I hope you will join me in discussing the following three basic questions in the context of digital badges and professional development. 1 – what exactly are badges? 2 – why might you want to know more about them? …. and …. 3 – if badges are so great, why haven’t we seen greater uptake of them by others?

The presentation linked to three informative documents

The presenter mentioned a chat and Q & A area but this participant was unable to find these during the presentation (later I found out it was the Q & A utility in Google +).
Other participants were interacting with the presenter in these spaces.
