At the recent NMC Retreat, the hashtag #NMChz had 998 tweets over the three days (at least that I could capture with Archivist). I copied the text of the tweets, removed NMChz and RT as two obvious repetitious terms, and then dumped what was left in Wordle. Interesting results: Click on the image above to… Read more A Thousand Tweets
Day Two at the NMC Future of Education Retreat was just as amazing as the first night, if not more so. Take one hundred colleagues from higher education, K12, museums, and corporate technology companies and have them think out loud for a day…that was the process at this retreat. Just look at the sticky notes… Read more Day Two at NMC Retreat
I’ll reflect more tomorrow…but this evening was fascinating. Malcolm Brown of Educause was our initial thought leader, and in 6 minutes, he suggested we look at the Horizon Report as a process of design thinking, working on “wicked problems.”.

Without the words, the slides may… Read more At Educause MARC 2012 Conference
At next week’s Educause Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference in Baltimore, I have been asked to lead an “Experience IT” session on Twitter 202. Per the program, “…the “Experience IT” format offers a hands-on, highly interactive introduction to newer tools and technologies so you can explore their potential impact in the workplace and classroom and on your… Read more Twitter 202
