Sounds of The Bazaar – LIVE

June 4th, 2008 by Graham Attwell

What do you do on Mondays?
Eastenders? Corrie? The Archers? Meet a mate down the pub? Or perhaps a quiet night in?
We have the answer to those Monday evening blues. Its called Emerging Mondays. Emerging Mondays features a once a month topical and lively media meet up for all Emerge members and friends. The format is simple. Starting at seven clock, once a month, Emerging Mondays will feature an hours live internet radio followed by a social event in second Life.
The first of our series is this coming Monday, June 9 at 1900 hours UK Summer Time, 2000 Central European Summer Time.
The theme for our first programme will be “Social software – finding value? The right tools but the wrong approach?
The educational technology community has embraced social software with a wave of experimental projects and activities. But is it working? The tools are great for encouraging new participatory approaches to learning and for building peer activity and networking. However, is there a dissonance between such approaches to learning and the structures and curricula of our education systems? Does the adoption of social software challenge hierarchies and power? What is the role of teachers and trainers in a era where knowledge is distributed through networks.
The radio broadcast can be accessed by going to the following web address: http://icecast.commedia.org.uk:8000/emerge.mp3
This weeks show features Steve Wheeler from Plymouth College talking about social software, Jay Cross from Internet Times on informal learning, Hank Horkoff from China Pod in Shanghai on personal Learning Environments and language teaching and learning and of course our culture spot with the Last Poet in Oxford.. We will be holding a regular ‘phone in’ slot over skype and would love to welcome you live on the show. Make sure I have your skype address – mine is GrahamAttwell and we will be happy to chat to you on Monday evening.
And, of course, I am looking forward to meeting up with you on the Emerge SL Island after the event.
Its enough to make Mondays worth looking forward to.

  1. Not sure if I am going to be bale to make the 1st Monday, but I will make sure to spread the word about this cool event…using social software of course! 😉

  2. Hi Cris. You already know this history, but I`d like to tell it again. It was a 95 years old lady who was writing short stories and one day her grand-grand-grand son discovered the notebook with the stories. He arranged the stories in a blog and presented it to the lady as a birthday gift. At that time I recommended you not to wait till you are 95 to begin writing. But not just to begin. Continue. Your short stories are easy to read. And what if our friend Carla who is a marvelous photographer add some photos to your stories. And now I am remembering a tool that allows us to make a book with our writings. I agree with you that Isabel Allende is a superb writer. But if she had not published her first book no one had known her. So please, do not abandon your diary. Warm hugs, Horacio.

    sounds like a cool way to spend an hour of a Monday evening. I’ve shared this on FriendFeed in order to spread the word – there’s an edubloggers room there if you are interested http://friendfeed.com/rooms/edubloggers

  4. Hi Cris. I know you are going to give a rest to your computer. But I know how difficult is to resist the call of it. So please, tell me how to acces “Sounds of The Bazaar – LIVE” and forgive for interrupting your nap.Warm hugs, Horacio.

    The Spanish newspaper, El País, has reported that the City of Barcelona is in the process of migrating its computer system to Open Source technologies.

    According to the news report, the city plans to first replace all its user applications with alternative open source applications. This will go on until the only remaining proprietary software will be Windows where it will finally be replaced with a Linux distribution.

    To support the move, the city will employ 65 new developers to build software programs for their specific needs. they also plan the development of a digital market – an online platform – whereby small businesses will use to take part in public tenders.
