  1. Hi David,
    I saw your session on ideation and design thinking at Educon. Great session! I’ve enjoyed reading your stuff for years but this was the first time I’ve had a chance to see you present. It was a real pleasure! I am writing to ask a favor. I am writing an article for CDWG’s EdTech Magazine and gathering quotes from folks who have BYOD programs. I remember you mentioning your program during the session. Have any nuggets of wisdom to share? What are the biggest benefits? Biggest pitfalls to avoid?

    I would be delighted to include you in the article. No real pressure here. I’m including comments from several folks, including my own journey as a tech director. Anything you’d be willing to share in an article targeted to people considering BYOD would be great. I’m woefully late on the article. Thus, if you don’t have time to pop down a few things, don’t worry about it. However, if you do, I’d love to include it!

    Take care,

  2. Dear Sir, In all that talk about linking things to things and people t resources in your what if video. May I be so bold as to point out that here: there isn’t a FB link to your video talks. Down below this comment box on this page there is, but on the other there is not. I wanted to share the “what if” clip on FB but had to go through Project Zero to do so. “What if” we could link the video page to FB?! Thanks for the consideration.
    Kindly, Shannon

    I was planning to attend your TCEA Session on Developing Social Media Guidelines yesterday. I was very sad it was cancelled because my middle school has very linited technology and would like to open our campus to BYOD next year. I was wondering if you could send me the powerpoint for the session. I have viewed your website and it looks like I can get some resources but I would really like to see your presentation. THANKS!!

  4. Greetings Mr. Jakes, I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation at the Tech Forum in New York last week. I want to share with my Colleagues all the information learning about ‘Re-envisioning Learning Spaces. There was a gentlemen who presented a powerpoint just before you. He said he would post the powerpoint to the Tech Forum website. I haven’t seen it. Do you know how I can obtain a copy of his powerpoint, I’d like to include it with yours for my presentation here at St. Philip’s. Thanks for your assistance.

    Title: Assessment of Learning with Badges
    Date: November 30, 2012
    Time: 12pm – 1pm EST
    Speaker: Dr. David Gibson
    Description: This webinar will present ideas and examples of assessing deeper learning in open online learning communities as well as game and simulation-based learning experiences based on eight essential practices. The practices were surfaced by a writing team developing a theoretical foundation for badges in a project linked to the Open Badge Infrastructure. The session will define deeper learning and outline a case for elevating formative, performance-based methods in technology-enhanced assessments. A technical discussion of big data analysis of game and simulation click tracks will include introduction to tools and methods used to mine for complex patterns where time, virtual space, and digital affordances combine to complicate the process of inferring what users know and can do based on their actions in digital spaces.
