First month of new job

I am back in Tallinn University from the beginning of September. First month has been so busy that I haven’t had time to blog about that yet. I work as a research associate in the Centre for Educational Technology.

My responsibilities have not changed much with moving from Helsinki to Tallinn. Tallinn University is also partner in CALIBRATE project where we design and develop LeMill software. I hope that I have also more time to focus on my doctoral studies when I don’t have to travel every week.

Some highlights from the first month:

We are starting a small project where an open textbook about geography of Viljandi county will be published in LeMill.

A group of teachers from Georgia visited Tallinn and we organized for them a workshop about LeMill and outdoor learning activity with GPS devices and eMapps environment. The event is tagged dlf07tallinn in Flickr, LeMill and del.icio.us.

Our CALIBRATE partners from Helsinki and Budapest visited us for a one week development sprint. As a result we have released LeMill 2.0 that contains new template for creating interactive exercises. Teemu Leinonen has written more about LeMill 2.0 in FLOSSE Posse.

Last week of September Last week I was teaching the Comp@ctive III teacher training course in Palma de Mallorca with Mart Laanpere and Pentti Pirhonen. It was a third time for us to teach that course. The course focused on using Web 2.0 for international school projects. We set up course Comp@ctive III blog in wordpress.com and used compactive07 tag in Flickr and Slideshare. For the first time I was giving a lecture based on Youtube playlist.

And last but not least… I had a chance to spend one amazing night in Pacha Ibiza… one of the most famous house clubs in the world.
