The Google Chromecast is not much larger than a large thumbdrive. While designed for entertainment at home, its portability makes it potentially useful in schools too.

In the third part of my series, Happy New Gear, I provide a brief description and review of the product while also mentioning one possible classroom use.

This week I share why I like the Asus Pocket Router.

The device is deceptively small and looks like a thumb drive. This USB dongle is an ethernet adaptor, wifi adaptor, and an Internet signal sharing device all rolled into one.

Asus has not sponsored the device or prompted this blog entry. It has proven its utility when I have to travel or give talks at institutes other than my own, so I thought I should share the joy.

Thankfully things slow down a little on Christmas week. But they will start will gearing up in no time.

Here is my simple Christmas gift to those who follow me on various social media channels: A YouTube playlist of my favourite Christmas videos, some family vacation photographs, and an invitation to e-Fiesta 2014.

See the links in the video or the video description!

If you have been following our informal learning video series on CeL-Ed, you might have noticed a few changes this month.

As we review our workflow and experiences, we will introduce even more changes. One change might mean culling channels. For now we are making the changes I outline in the video above.

So what are you waiting for? Watch, comment, and subscribe!

On a separate and unrelated note, I will be away on a family vacation this week but I will still be scheduling an entry a day.

If I make any contribution to the discourse on flipped learning, it might be this video.

There are two parts to this three-minute long piece.

In the first part, I share three stories of my attempts at flipping in 2007, 2009, and 2011. The first two were failures that I learnt from. The last was something I do to this day.

The second part is a simple framework for what I think are at least three dimensions of flipping.

This is the third part of my YouTube series of flipped learning.

It is probably the first of the meatier and more challenging parts participants new to flipped learning will come to terms with.

It is also one of the main reasons I started the series. I have always felt that many practitioners have misconceptions about what flipping involves.

This is a video that could have gone very long. It had the most content in my Evernote section for flipping. But it is about the same length as the other two parts [1] [2] thanks to other content creators who share their work openly and generously!

In this short episode, I outline what I think are three main reasons for the rise of flipped learning:

  1. Technological readiness
  2. Teacher readiness
  3. Learner readiness

Next Monday: What flipping is and is not.
