i was wondering what happened to the plans for the next international seminar…as i recall it was meant to take place at the Prado Media Lab in Madrid in the end of September or beginning of October. Any news about that?
I happen to be in Spain this summer and autumn, anyways, to study Spanish – preparing for my research in Peru in the beginning of next year! I need some information as soon as possible to be able to prepare something for the seminar and to know when I should be in Madrid…
What have you guys been doing so far?
greetings from Hamburg
i have to announce, that i will not take part in the course ‘analysis of virtual learning environments’ anymore. At the moment it affects my normal studies to much and they are the absolute priority for me. As i have already mentioned during the international seminar, i am just in the 3rd year of my Magister-studies and as an effect of the soon comming study-fees i need to finish some courses there. I will still participate in our VisualKnowledgeBuilding groupwork and keep doing some research for that (as it also collides with my studies in Ethnologie…) but i think i will need more time to study the courses in eped full-time and at the moment it is to much and also i don’t know whether the VLE course will finish in time, so it doesn’t make sense for me to do half a course (because from february to april i won’t be here to study…).
ok, that’s it. i’m sorry and i wish everyone all the best and a good christmas-time, new year… we still keep in touch
I just read in a comment (on VKB’s group-entry) that there was a Skype-meeting between Jaap and ‘i-don’t-know-who’ because i wasn’t in… Maybe it’s my fault and we had a clear appointment, but i don’t remember (and didn’t write down) anything like that. The only information that i saved so far (concerning Jaaps seminar) was that we will start the 15th of November. For you, Jaap, i would very much recommend to send a note via email and remind us (students) to have a meeting. Or post a message in the blog…
hope to hear you next time – Antje*]]>
At first I felt very strange, because all the time everyone seemed to be permanently working on their laptops and I was wondering what you are doing all the time and if it effects your real-life-communication. For example, when somebody told something in a discussion or gave a presentation, the other people that I thought were the listeners did something else but listening. I thought that you are either not very interested, capable of multiple action, or maybe just pay attention to the main key-words that mostly didn’t explain me a lot.
However it was very interesting to see how you work and that there is still a lot of outcome from this behaviour. I will try to bring a laptop and be busy the next time, too.
What disturbed me a lot during the free-time was the digital cameras as I don’t feel very comfortable with people photographing me all the time, especially when it is again and again because the photos of me do not turn out to be nice, but thank you for trying. Now that I have seen the flickr-accounts with some really good photos I wonder what is going to be left when we remember the seminar and have these photos that emphasize certain moments, situations and of course the fotogenic people. Will I be part of the memory when there is no portrait of me available? Seems a lot like some kind of visual knowledge building…
What I enjoyed very much were the stories of your personal life and your thoughts that you shared with me. I want to thank you all for letting me get to know you a bit and hope very much to continue the discussions online, in a different environment that I still have to explore a bit more. So here are the first steps into a permanent-online-social-life.
