Here are some videos I watched in 2016 you don’t wanna miss (playlist here if you don’t want the annotated version below)
- Ruha Benjamin’s ISTE keynote. Hands down the best keynote I have watched this year. It’s like 4 keynotes in one. Concept of discriminatory design stuck with me most.
- DML 2016 Ignite talks (& day two). This is a series of talks, almost all of them really powerful (incl Kate Green, Christian Friedrich, Robin DeRosa, Remi Kalir and more). They’re available as separate videos but I like them together, and if you’re interested in seeing Gardner Campbell warm up the crowd with dancing…(I heard from several people that Gardner worked to prepare the speakers really well…and it shows! They were amazing).
- Amy Collier’s DigPedCairo keynote (even though I watched it live; this link isn’t on YouTube but should work) really made me cry and I will always remember it for that. And for inspiring me to assign my students a “develop your own learning taxonomy” blogpost
- Josie Fraser and Mark Summons for me was a favorite closing Plenary at OEB16 where they used the human spectogram (one of my favorite workshop type activities) to open up discussion about people’s opinions on digital literacies. I just watched that this morning and really enjoyed it. Great to know it’s been done at a conference Plenary as I am a fan of hacking conference formats. They asked really good questions and participants had really insightful responses across the spectrum
- Closed Doors. TEDxCairo Women talk by Nahla Al Nimr (Arabic). I won’t spoil it, but a life changer for me
- The panel on ethical online learning that took place as a UMW townhall just before OpenEd16, with the likes of Kate Bowles, Sean Michael Morris, Liz Losh and Alan Levine, facilitated by Jesse Stommel, you can imagine how rich that conversation was.
- Workshop at DigPedLab UMW Inclusive Globally Networked Learning (by Kate Bowles, Paul Prinsloo and myself) followed by a VC Hallway conversation w Chris Gilliard, Annemarie Perez, Sherri Spelic and Miriam Neptune as first-time onsite buddy.
- #digciz week 3 for its timely discussion of the role of critical digital citizenship in America following police violence against African Americans
- Should edtech have an Ethos? by Jim Groom and I at AMICAL because it was the first time I could speak so critically and freely in front of my colleagues
- ePatients Launch for highlighting the importance of engaged patient behavior as a form of citizenship
Not talks but great short videos to use in teaching:
- Microaggression: what kind of Asian are you (thx Bonni Stachowiak)
- Digital privacy: Mind-reader reveals His gift (thx Nadine Aboulmagd)
- Decolonizing SOAS: Student Perspectives (thx Paul Prinsloo)
- Ken Bauer’s video explaining how to create Google hangouts w new YouTube Live! That was a life saver for vconnecting
- Systems of Adversity TEDTalk by Rusul AlRubail
- Ryan Derby-Talbot TEDxTalk on first-person learning in mathematics
- UpFront TedTalk – new approach to thinking of generosity as a keynote speaker
- This silent video on schooling/deschooling shared via Facebook: Alike (thx Caroline)
Wow, that’s a lot more videos than I had originally intended (I used YouTube history to help job my memory. Didn’t uhh realize it went THAT far back!)
Again, here’s that playlist
