Loose Learners Episode
Welcome to Episode 5 of the Loose Learners on Radio EduTalk. The next episode will be on September 6th as we are taking August as our summer break.
Without further ado we need to explain our poster for this episode as it is a little bit of an in-joke between the two of us and some of our regular listeners. We always intend to run for 30 minutes and as we meander through our topic, an hour has gone by. We promise to ourselves that the next episode will be 30 minutes and so far we have failed to achieve this goal. So the poster was a little joke on the idea that we have a special and ‘stretchy’ 30 minutes for each of our episodes.

CPDin140 – Kristian Still
Kristian (@KristianStill) provides here a very balanced set of insights and observations of both the bright and darker sides of Twitter. What I do need to add though is that during the brief chat we had after the ‘stop’ button had been pressed, Kristian recalled times past and other activities which were to some extent connected by and through Twitter. The EdTechRoundUp podcasts produced during Sunday night FlashMeetings, facilitated largely by Doug Belshaw and Dai Barnes were recollected. Also how potent an experience it had been producing the #movemeon book, and how, as a PDF, it continues to do good work. Perhaps Dai or Doug might like to talk about those times …?
