Hot Topics for Derby Geekeasy at Furnace Inn

It was an honour to be invited to speak to the Derby Geekeasy  group who meet monthly at the Furnace Inn on the banks of Derby’s River Derwent. What an interesting network of interesting people? They has asked me to talk about technology and learning and to be a bit animated!  Others will judged if I got the animation right, by as my slides (below) show I had a crack at an overview of pedagogical approaches and the current issues about Open Education including the current MOOC phenomenon.

Thanks to Glyn Smith for the pictures

    Alastair, is there any link between the Geekeasy group and Derby Makers (, who are part of the hack(er)space/make(er)space movement? I am very interested in hackerspace environments, although I have no direct experience of using one.
