Googlehangout with Sam and Isobel
Just took part in my first ever live googlehangout for #BYOD4L with Sam Illingworth and Isobel Gowers – what a fabulous way to spend a lunch hour …
So what did I learn ?
Well….I learnt that you can screen share using Googlehangouts …….that Isobel and I were already twitter friends but I hadn’t recognised her without her horse ! ……and that you can add weird and wonderful things to enhance your look ( here is a sneaky pick in case you missed Sam’s additions in the video ! )
So what else did I learn ?
I learnt that collaborating with others involves a willingness to reach out and share and be brave and ask ! The people I have met in the Open world have all been so giving and generous with their time. #BYOD4L has been a great way to meet even more like minded souls and hopefully collaborate on other things …. watch this space.
Oh and I even managed to get in a quick shameless plug for the OER15 Conference that I am helping to organise with the lovely Chrissi and OER15 Planning Committee which is a great example of collaboration if ever I saw one. OERConf will be really pleased !
As a project manager I simply couldn’t function without the generous time and energy that other people give to collaborate with me. So for me collaboration whether face to face or online is simply awesome !

PS I also learnt that I really should wear some makeup while doing a googlehangout #oops
So lovely to read your story about today, how it made you reflect on the value of collaboration and most importantly your thoughts about being perhaps pro-active about it. Fantastic!
I watched the recording and could see on your faces and the atmosphere that you all had a great time together. I was smiling with you until the end. It was pure magic!!!
Awww thanks so much Chrissi 🙂 I have got such a lot out of #BYOD4L this week … awesome stuff 🙂
