Trying to find useful things to do with emerging technologies in open education

New Ed Tech Toys for TM351…

I did a thing earlier this week to the internal OU CALRG conference about some of my thinking ongoing at the moment around new edtech toys for “the data course”, TM351.

Annotated slides here: Imagining TM351: from virtual machines to notebooks.

Having presented it, the slides need reordering, a bit more emphasis needs to be placed on role human readable text can play in notebooks (h/t Alistair Willis for that observation), and I need to do quite a bit more thinking about the spreadsheet-notebook comparison.

Also to do are more thoughts on the “(non)linearity”/”serialisation” aspects of authoring, reading and executing/working through that I touched on in another talk, from last week: From storymaps to notebooks: do your computing one step at a time.
