#purposedpsi: the missing content

Purpos/ed post its

Our ‘drip feed’ approach of content from the first Purpos/ed Summit for Instigators has meant a slow and steady stream of audio and video from the event (one month ago today!). Given our next campaign starts on Wednesday, we thought it best that we link to the rest of the audio from the event available via Edutalk.cc. Here goes:

Many thanks to John Johnston for sorting these out for us! Don’t forget to sign up for #purposedfutured (also audio-based).

Audio from #purposedpsi – 6 – Steve Bunce’s 3×3

At the event, instigators were randomly selected to present a (pre-prepared) set of three slides in the space of three minutes (hence 3×3). This was Steve Bunce’s contribution:

Audio from #purposedpsi – 1 – Doug Belshaw’s intro

Purpos/ed Instigators

Thanks again to Steve Boneham who captured the audio at the inaugural Purpos/ed Summit for educators. We’re fortunate to have roped in John Johnston, co-founder of EDUtalk.cc to help us chop up the audio into manageable sections.

The first of these, Doug Belshaw‘s introduction, is now available at:

June 2011′s campaign (which you’ll be able to sign up for soon) will be audio-based, so start thinking of people to interview!

Bonus: some more feedback from the event

Feedback from #purposedpsi

Purpos/ed

We’ve had some great, honest feedback from our first Purpos/ed Summit for Instigators. We can’t list all of it, but below are some snapshots. Many mentioned how they enjoyed meeting people face-to-face that they’d only previously interacted with online, coupled with a wish that the afternoon could have been all-day instead.

Oh, and we’ll make sure that we include an attendee list next time, although we’re pleased with the number of people who have joined the Facebook group for the event!

I enjoyed listening to everyone’s talks and thought the 3×3 format was really effective.

Less formal structure (I didn’t like the lecture theatre and alternative classroom) where lots of different things can happen at once – everything can be captured and shared later.

The organisation was very good – clear directions, clear programme which was kept to, clear focus on the tasks.

Provide a notional framework or expected outputs from barcamp-type dicussions. Ours degenerated a little and got off-task…

Having never worked in education I found it very enlightening to have a discussion with people who have ideas on how to improve or change how people are educated.

The wifi was crap.

I enjoyed the camaraderie (thank goodness for spell check) of the people gathered. I felt that there was a spirit amongst the participants due to the networking that had been facilitated prior to the event via the Purpos/ed team’s efforts.

I think the link between 3x3s and discussions could be made more meaningful – though I’m not sure how. The presentations and the discussions were both worthwhile and interesting, but they felt a bit like different events.

[I liked] the opportunity to discuss the big questions with open minded and informed people.

[I would like] a broader intake than those that work in schools (the echo chamber)

Many thanks to those who gave feedback – we look forward to being bigger and better next time!

Order (more) #500words books!

Purpos/ed - 500words

At the Purpos/ed Summit for Instigators last Saturday, instigators were given a book containing all of the (scheduled) #500words blog posts written as part of a recent campaign. This was courtesy of Chris Ratcliffe of Scholastic UK using their easy-to-use We Are Writers! website.

There’s been demand since the event both from those who were there (who want more than one copy) and those who weren’t there (who want to get their hands on one). Using his initative, Ian Guest got in touch with Chris and has found a way in which those who want to get hold of some can do.
