#BYOD4L – Day one: connecting

#BYOD4l is up and running again, and we’ve just had the first of our drop in sessions here at GCU.  It’s always great to see the interest the event creates and the issues that our staff are thinking about in terms of mobile devices.

Today as we were exploring the twitter stream we noticed that Alex Spiers was periscoping.  As Periscope was new to a number of people “in the room” so we decided to follow Alex’s example and instead of explaining Periscope, just do it. Our very short Periscope was enough create quite an interesting discussion around the pros and cons of using it in learning and teaching (see this post for some more thoughts).

We’re looking forward to the tweet chat tonight (remember the hashtag is #byod4lchat) and to our online session tomorrow (details here)  where we’ll be thinking about communicating via the new Collaborate Ultra web conferencing system.
