Since its arrival LinkedIn has become a key professional building tool. I have had a LinkedIn profile for some time. I can see the benefits of having a professional brand. Having an up-to-date LinkedIn profile is a must if you are actively seeking employment. Interestingly if you search for an individual’s name in Google, if they have a LinkedIn profile it will be ranked in the top of the results lists. It’s great for knowing who’s who in your profession, and people can learn about me in a way that I can control; my strengths, my brand!
I have updated my LinkedIn profile for Thing 11, something I admit I hadn’t done in a while.
Active learning involves students doing something... in the information literacy skills sessions I deliver students must engage in a session using their devices. Those that do not have devices can use the PC's available so the session is fully inclusive.
I have employed a number of tools to encourage engagement in sessions including, Kahoot, Padlet and quizzes in Moodle. I found that students prefer the free game-based learning platform Kahoot as it makes it fun to learn. Students are actively participating in learning and assessment without actually thinking about it and as it game based I find that peers get competitive!
