(For this month’s Slice of Life Challenge with Two Writing Teachers, I am aiming to do Six Word Slices most days, with some extended slices on other days.)
Context: This month, in the ongoing CLMOOC (Connected Learning MOOC) community, our postcard theme (we send postcards to each other all year long) is Remix. I decided to remix the audio of a Hangout we had over the summer in which we chatted about the art of sending postcards to each other. On postcards I sent out earlier this month, I included a URL to the audio remix, and then shared out this video (which is really just visual audio). It’s been neat to get some reaction from the folks who received my postcard, and also from others in CLMOOC who read updates from the postcard receivers, and react.
Peace (in the post),
Emotional connections. Smiles when receiving the postcards. Wondering how to create similar connected learning experiences for students. these snippet spoke the loudest to me.
Yep. All good questions. Ones to ponder and think deep about.
Great idea! It’s such fun to hear all the different voices sharing their thoughts and reflections. I’m sure they were delighted to receive this “postcard.”
I’ve enjoyed your six-word posts all month and will miss them. This audio mosaic is fascinating, but way beyond my own technical skills. There’s a lot about the digital era I am wary of being an old-school educator, but there are some things that are just amazing like this audio-postcard swap. I love the addition of music, another dimension for communication. Nice work this month!
Receiving postcard is such a joy! Thanks for introducing me to group.
I need to send my next batch of the postcards. They are all ready to go waiting for a trip to post office / mail box.
