This cloud has been set up for the launch of the Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA) web site launch on 1st October 2009. It includes the slides from Gráinne Conole's introductory presentation and a set of questions for discussion:
- How can we foster and support the development of the Irish Learning Technology community, how can we encourage better sharing and discussion?
- How can web 2.0 technologies help and in particular how might cloudworks help?

I thought this would be a great support for our ILTA special interest groups - we will have the benefit of all this international expertise!

Hi Eamon and Jen
Looking forward to the launch - I think cloudworks could be a reallly useful resource to help share and discuss things for the ILTA community and as you say a way to expand and connect internatioanally.

perhaps we might also consider using Cloudworks to support EdTech 2010? like ALT-C did in 2009? http://cloudworks.ac.uk/index.php/cloudscape/view/1870

There's also the potential to use cloudworks to extend discussion to a wider ILTA audience - both international and across sectors. It will also help promote open sharing of resources and associated expertise, and at the same time keeping best practice learning design activities at the forefront ...

Hi catherine, niall
definitely potential to use cloudworks in a range of ways - we are seeing some exciting new patterns of use emerge - see for example http://e4innovation.com/?p=337 for more on this.

I recall the Cloudscape being really useful in the EdTech 2009 conference in NCI to help collect the Twitter stream: http://cloudworks.ac.uk/index.php/cloudscape/view/1663
In the final presentation it was projected on screen and really helped to synthesize the discussion, and gather speaker questions.

Jen would be happy to brainstorm with you guys about how you could best use cloudworks for the next conference. Have a look also at the cloudscape for a conference I was at the week before last http://cloudworks.ac.uk/index.php/cloudscape/view/1890

Thanks, Grainne. We are in the planning stages for the conference (this year in Athlone on 21/22May) and so this is a timely offer.

No problem Jen will be useful for us too in terms of honing our understanding of how the site can be used in different ways.
