  • "1:00-1:15": To hone one's practices, exploration does not necessarily start with a clean slate. What's more important is about keeping our minds open and being observant. I think being open and able to seize what's probably relevant, and adapt to our context (i.e. our environment (in this case, the classroom)) are two important attributes educators should have. We can look out for others' existing practices and make connections to our existing practices, adapt ideas or practices at varying extent, try them out and further contextualise to make it relevant to our own classrooms. This, in fact, could be extended to linking two or more ideas that we draw from different places to complement each other. It sounds like 'mashing' but there's where we turn ideas into richer ideas! To some effect, it's a collaboration of ideas facilitated by us.
  • "3:15-3:45": Our mental model of "Professional development" has evolved - as we think deeper on the application of learning (or how learning is applied, again a varying depths). It's no longer just about attending a workshop and apply what's learned to our practices (perhaps "mathematically", a translation?), but to understand and seek deeper meaning, and selectively apply this knowledge to our context.
  • Role modeling - doing what we want our students to do, modeling & demonstrating - to influence
  • Collaborative efficacy
  • "5:15-5:27": Building Learning Technology Knowledge through "Online collaborative community sharing testable open co-designed peer-reviewed adaptable learning design"
