October’s learning challenge from the Flexible Understanding Now Network (FUNN) has had a fair bit of commentary. Ideas included vlogging, crafting QR codes and Inbox Zero strategies. Then cutting edge @MissSophieMac scooped the pool with the idea of digital storytelling. For those of you (like me) who’ve never heard of this visit Wikipedia on the topic. It has the benefit of allowing people who are not yet comfortable with flashing their face on the web a cloak to screen themselves.
So the challenge for October is at present #Octshowntell – 1 a week (4 in total).
Tell any story you like (can be work related, pets, recipes) with visual (show) and audio (tell).
5/10 Vimeo groups works now (unlike YouTube groups)
so please add your stories to http://vimeo.com/groups/octshowntell
(to join choose restructuregirl as a contact & I will add you to the group!)
or show and tell on your own blogs and twitter the link with the tag #octshowntell
Now the important question is DO I HAVE ANY TAKERS?
Keep in mind that I rely on FUNN for entertainment these days, so if I don’t get enough tweeps playing this I shall nag you all into a variant of @flexnib’s reading challenge ; with a designated weekly reading on library studies with expected reports for discussion online from all.
