So more emotional learning media? Study: Emotional brain states can linger & influence subsequent memory https://t.co/KR2alAvLfX #deuloe
@learntechstu Our general observations are going 2 be very(!) general(!) I’d say. Like making observations about animals in general. #mscedc

@notwithabrush @Eli_App_D Thanks! I enjoyed yours, too! Your use of the medium (film) is very skilled, entertaining & inspiring!
@lemurph @helenwalker7 Looking very forward to seeing it!!!
@hamacleod @researchdigest Interesting, this is exactly how well trained journalists conduct TV or newspaper interviews!
Data Analysis vs Facebook age estimate
Online communities, especially commercial ones, can be characterized by their inherent data collection and the commercial use of this data. I looked at my data at two different sites, on my EDC homepage and on Facebook, where I used one of those FB games which try to find out something about yourself. The one I chose to use, chose to play with wanted to guess my age and gender by nowing my answers to a few questions. The game failed miserably, which was a relief to me.
I also looked at my EDC homepage and analyzed the data. The funny thing here: I provided the data and it was also me who analyzed it. If you have a film camera fiking the pictur it is filming, e.g. a TV screen on which the live footage is shown and then filmed by the same camera, you create a visual feedback loop – a very very distorted picture. Maybe my own analyzis is just as bad as the one on FB.
Ethnography Video plus Twitter discussion
I tried producing a netnography, but the MOOC I had chosen did not make this possible it seemed, so I turned the possible failure into a piece of learning for me and others. There is still a lot to be researched and studied when it comes to using video in education and I am surprised just how little is obviously done at an academic level. Well, I am getting there – from day one on this programme and for as long as I may.
