Let’s imagine you’re not toting a dedicated video camera or DSLR, but rather are using the the ever-present smartphone camera in your pocket. While you can always call on Instagram or Vine for shooting and sharing video, there are so many other cool video apps out there—some free, some costing a few dollars—that it’s worth broadening your field of view to include these eight innovative selections.

A list of tools about curation as a simpler alternative to blogging
Simply put, content curation involves taking content from other reputable websites and using it to create a piece of information that is useful to your target audience. Typical examples of content curation would include top 10 lists that discuss the best blog posts or marketing campaigns of the year. Curation can also mean the act of using sentences or paragraphs from other writers.
It’s for your PLE.

Some personal considerations about this IP

Dear students, teachers and finally friends, during my trip back to Switzerland, I take time to write some personnal considerations about this IP. I share with you. All the best for the two last days and all the following.

wpid-img_1187-2014-03-19-18-57.jpg

After a successful first edition, this second edition of the IP Generation Y brings me great satisfactions. I will resume here. But first thank you a lot, dear students, for your works and implication since the first day. It was a pleasure and honor to be in Liège with you.
Student involvement was very impressive during the workshops. I read summaries of the first week. This summaries indicated that if the students had not asked many questions during the lectures, they had nevertheless followed with interest and attention. As the first week was well balanced between discoveries of tools, workshop using social medias and theoretical contributions. Thank you to them!
This IP is generally denser than the first edition. It should be noted how students manage to keep up. I am delighted to see their final work
The mine visit was also a very interesting time especially emotionally. This visit brought a welcome breath in bringing us out of the urban space to integrate the campaign and a former industrial environment. Both evocations of a time near and far from us, compared with an old industry and technology, replace human in a dimension that transcends us. And what will become of our today’s technologies and their users in thirty or forty years ? Will we replaced these guides? And to evoke deeply which memories with our visitors ?
To return to the IP, such a session is also beneficial for teachers. Not only because it allows us to exchange between us and the students, but also because it exceeds the theoretical understanding of Generation Y to see this generation work in practice. I was even more impressed this year by their relationship and their use of social medias. As such, the exercise asking them to define their generation, and the realization of their video Liege, allowed me to see some sort of connections with their inner world and their practical involvement in the work. Stronger and interesting than any theorizing about them. I hope they can and will find their own way and develop it in school system.
In addition, this year the trade with students HELMo were more numerous and instructive. In dealing with technology and education, there was overall as a gap between these students and those of the IP HELMo . A signal that the question of the evolution of the school system is far from won, whatever the age of the teachers. We are still far to implement BYOD in school !
At the end, never forgot the human adventure in which every day we are engaged. Our diversity enrich whole of us. May we always keep openminded.
Just another day in paradise ! 😉

Day nine : Blegny’s mine | Visit underground

On the afternoon, we go in the older’s time and visit the Blegny’s mine.

Located between Liège and Maastricht, Blegny-Mine is one of the four authentic coalmines in Europe with underground drifts accessible for the visitors trhough the original shaft.

Situated at – 30 and – 60 meters, they allow a complete discovery of the procass of coal winning.

Since july 2012, Blegny-Mine and the 3 others majors mining sites in Wallonia (Le Bois du Cazier, Bois-du-Luc et Grand-Hormu) are recognized by UNESCO AS A WORLD HERITAGE SITE.

Day eight : Generation Why ? | Student presentation

Generation Why ? Presentation by Dani, Didac, Jaime & Rafael 

Monday morning and time to remobilize teachers and students:

The students prepared a small activity, that showed the “digital gap” and cultural differences between different pupils all over the world. There are huge differences in the daily life of schools and ICT in schools around the world.

At work.

Second time the presentation :

The students figured out that there are still borders in europe – even when they are less visible then before. There are two different borders:
– economic boarders
– technological borders – like ICT in school

They also showed, that there is a social gap, that saperates one social class from another
“Digital gap” – there is a difference between those who have access to internet and those who have not

Day five : Using technology for teaching ?

What is a SWOT analysis” by Patrick DEJARNAC (teacher HELMo, Liège-Belgium)
Définition :
A SWOT analysis (alternatively SWOT Matrix) is a structured planning method used to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved in a project or in a business venture. A SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry or person. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective. The technique is credited to Albert Humphrey, who led a convention at the Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) in the 1960s and 1970s using data from Fortune 500 companies. The degree to which the internal environment of the firm matches with the external environment is expressed by the concept of strategic fit. Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWOT_analysis
