Pecha Kucha style as a way to do your presentation

You are asked to create a theoretical based usecase of microblogging or blogging and publish your results online.

The next step will be to give a presentation of your results in the seminar. In order to avoid long and exhausting presentations I ask you to do your presentation using pecha kucha style.

Pecha Kucha („Éö„ÉÅ„É£„ÇØ„ÉÅ„É£?), usually pronounced in three syllables like “pe-chak-cha”) is a presentation format in which content can be easily, efficiently and informally shown, usually at a public event designed for that purpose. Under the format, a presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds.1

So everyone should bring a slideshow with 20 slides with herself/himself to give a presentation of 6 minutes 40 seconds in total for our last seminar session on 14th of juli. Read more »

What does an educational microblogging service need?

Today we talked about the question if one would like to use microblogging in education, what would be needed to be a good educational microblogging service.
To discuss that and share some general information we used an etherpad document. And I have to admit that I was a bit surprised that instead of just thinking about the task everyone started creating content in this document. I shared the Information that we are working on this right now on twitter an so other seminar participants who can’t joint today and other twitter users joined as well. Thanks for that!

In my opinion the collected features might exclude each other sometimes, but it is a first collection and might be improved during the next weeks.

PS: During working with etherpad we discovered that there is a limitation to 8 users working on the document at the same time.

Twitter in the seminar

Somehow it is not that easy to follow the twitter messages from all seminar participants. Espacially following my tweets might be a lot of work and/or maybe to much work for you, because I am not only tweeting about what is happening in the seminar. And you are allowed to tweet about other things as well! But still the question is how to keep up with the seminar related tweets?
The answer is hashtags! Hashtags are strings beginning with a # (hash).
So I’ve chosen to use the official seminar Number 41-61.030 as hashtag. So always I post a twittermessage related to this seminar I add the hashtag #41-61.030 to my twittermessage.

But there is more, because there are services out on the web which aggregate twiter messages which use the same hashtag. One example is twazzup and if you search for #41-61.030 at twazzup, you will find a list of Twitter seminar related messages from any Twitter user (also from you if your posts aren’t protectet) using this hashtag.

So I would ask you to use twitter a little bit more to let us know what are you doing (for the seminar) and please include #41-61.030 to your messages if it might be interesting for the seminar.
