Henrik Svensson
http://ennoble.se
Consultant (Workplace Learning)
Sweden

  1. The coaching manager: To prepare and follow-up on a course is vital!
  2. The invitation letter: The participants first official course material to reach their eye.
  3. The whiteboard: Drawing explanations in real-time allows the participant to grow understanding in an organic speed instead of getting it all in one splash a la PPT.
  4. Word: Extracting all notes from a PPT to provide a nicely formatted document instead of bullet ridden PPTs.
  5. The You-will-teach-this-yourself state-of-mind: You listen in a very different way if you think or will be teaching the new learnings on to others.
  6. Delayed assessment: You listen more intently if your boss will assess your performance in one month’s time.
  7. The applying of new learnings: If you don’t get to apply what you’ve learned repeatedly after the course – it’s gone…
  8. PowerPoint done right: A slide-deck that supports your story without distracting from it can make wonders!
  9. Preparation: Don’t do it on-the-fly, don’t improvise – your participants deserves your best
  10. The question: Socrates got it right. Let the participants think for themselves and don’t just tell them the answers of “how things work”.

  1. twitter – for personal/professional learning outside of ‘work’ within my own organnisation, incl connecting with learning professionals across many diverse contexts (education, teaching, change/leadership, business & corporate / workplace learning/ elearning which is the specific context in which I work)
  2. WordPress – for my own personal learning/reflection (via own blog) as well as reading / learning from others. I also facilitate a edcontexts.org a project which aims to promote voices/stories of educators across diverse contexts, incl those outside mainstream (e.g. teachers/educators in ‘global south’), + promoting the importance of considering context and diversity in the design of ‘mainstream’ learning experiences – e.g. MOOCs. We have found that the pingback feature of wordpress in particular alerts and helps mutual promotion when linking out to other wordpress blogposts. This is also a feature of wordpress that I like having experienced it via my own personal blog.
  3. Google docs / drive – using this more this year since involvement with edcontexts.org – cloud based, ubiquitous nature of google docs enables us to easily share drafts, co-write, and review proposed posts and ideas.
  4. Email – gmail for personal. For personal / professional purposes I use it to get notifications of blog posts, comments / discussions on social platforms (blogs, linkedin, meetup, even twitter sometimes) I’m involved in, register for events/webinars, and to discuss strategies, ideas etc with other facilitators in the learning communities that I help lead (edcontexts, Ozlearn, third place meetups).
  5. Microsoft Outlook – work email like it or loathe it, email is still the dominant communication tool for private communication in both personal and work contexts. It’s the one thing I consistently check multiple times a day.At work – well, it’s still far and away the leading communication tool (aside from going up to someone and talking to them…)
  6. Microsoft Word – at work and home, it’s still the main tool I use for documents. at work it is for creating docs like design specifications, RFQ specs, storyboards, scripts; at home for drafting blogposts, academic work (literature reviews, proposal outlines, notes…I’m doing a research masters)
  7. LinkedIn – really good for professional connections and keeping up with what others are doing career wise, great tool when job searching (to connect with recruiters, promote your skills / experience etc), discuss & comment on posts that are professionally relevant. Prior to using twitter I used to be involved much more heavily in the discussion groups in LinkedIn. Now I spread my time much more across different activiites and learning communities I’m involved in leading. However still find interesting discussions in LinkedIn groups. Also as it’s more ‘contained’ than my twitter network sometimes find it easier to see/find links to posts and comment on them. comments and conversations can sometimes be a bit more visible on a professional level because my LinkedIn network is smaller and more restricted to people I know professionally (compared with twitter, which is where I tend to get more new ideas from and am connected to a larger and more diverse network).
  8. Lectora – for work -due to the nature of our organnisational environment (very diverse combination of corporate and, largely operational / field based employees in the public transport sector – train drivers, bus drivers, road designers, customer service etc etc) the environment for elearning combines PCs with IE8 and ipads. When developing self paced elearning we have had to use Lectora as it creates html(4) which outputs to both IE8 and iPads
  9. Wikipedia – good quick 1st reference for finding out about things in both work and
  10. Proquest – educational journal database using a lot more of this year to support masters research I am doing

  4. Wikipedia…Even though I encourage my students to not always trust the site, it’s a great starting point.
  5. Khan Academy…I don’t necessarily use it with my students, but it helps me know how to teach things differently
  6. Evernote…A great tool to use across my devices
  7. Edmodo…a safe site for students to network
  8. Facebook…good tool to communicate across a wide audience
  9. iMovie…a great tool for students to easily create media projects
  10. Wordle…a creative way for students to brainstorm and synthesize

  1. Google: Google search is the tool I use on a daily basis for both work and school to search for information and research issues that require in-depth study. As the worlds leading, and most popular search engine, the results made available afford me the ability to quickly discern what I can utilize as a reliable source.
  2. Gmail: This is still one of my primary methods of communication with distance collaborators. I organize and archive my emails to make finding past conversations easy to find.
  3. OneNote: I began using OneNote early last year for note taking for work and school. Utilizing cloud storage and the cross-platform applications, I’m able to access my notes on my computer, phone, or iPad anywhere and anytime.
  4. Prezi: Prezi has become my defacto presentation medium for projects that do not absolutely require a boring PowerPoint presentation. The movement and uniqueness of this application creates an interactive and engaging experience.
  5. Photoshop: Aside from being the most comprehensive image manipulation software on the market, Photoshop has been my primary go-to tool for my photography and still image creation for reports and presentations.
  6. Windows Movie Maker: This free, PC-based moving editing software allows for the quick cutting and export of video footage which I use to include in presentations or when authoring content for YouTube.
  7. XSplit: XSplit is commerical screen capture software. While primarily geared towards livestreaming video games, it’s configurable to capture from screen regions, specific windows and webcams. Additionally, you can create different ‘scenes’ to transition between different cameras or screen configurations.
  8. Google Drive: It didn’t take long to realize how cloud storage could help me organize my work and assignments. Combine that with an integrated and free office suite clone, and you have another one of my top tool picks.
  9. Adobe Audition: I’ve been using Audition since it was originally CoolEdit Pro. I would do audio editing for a friend of mine who did traffic and sports for a Clear Channel radio station, so whenever I need to manipulate audio or music, I fire up Audition.
  10. Draw.IO: I recently discovered this over the summer. As a software developer, process mapping and flow charting are just a way of life for me, so having a free, web-based application that seamlessly integrates with Google Drive is great.

      1. Kahoot: best features include the wait time before answers appear and the bar graph showing responses (quiz mode) so we can discuss differences between responses and students can learn from the formative assessment as they are doing it
      2. Schoology–amazingly robust, free platform for sharing resources, assigning and grading work, including commenting and for students to be active in the learning community as well
      3.  Google Voice–Get a sample of your students’ ability to speak a language or address a topic. You can have samples from an entire class of 36 in under 8 minutes (recommend having them call in groups of 10 or less if you are doing it in class–and turn off the default “forward to cell phone” feature when using it in class. Also allows text responses.
      4. ExplainEverything: one of many tools that give you a portable, virtual white board on which you can write, drop and annotate pics and video and record yourself as you add/work with content. Excellent for providing one-on-one help while circulating (and with the record feature, you can make your review, explanations and examples available to everyone). Also great in the hands of students: let them prove they understand by teaching concepts to others with this tool.
      5. Blendspace: curate multiple types of documents on a related them and build in opportunities for students to interact and/or show understanding as they view
      6. YouTube: upload your own videos and use the annotation features to link to related content or to ask your students questions
      7. Socrative: another formative assessment tool. Very UNglitchy. Does not give teacher information after each response, but good for exit tickets, and for having students complete individually–you can view the reports later.
      8. InfuseLearning: another formative assessment tool: favorite features = option for students to draw responses and ability to push web links to their devices.
      9. Quizlet: make your own sets and share them with students. Let students make their own flash card sets. Find already made sets. Learn, pronounce, play games, interactive mode for students to challenge each other.
      10. Google Forms: have your forms autograded with the Flubaroo script. Same script will also send an email to all students with their results (as long as you ask for their email addresses as one of the form questions). A great new option in the form: embed video in the form. This is wonderful for teachers, who can now have the video and questions about the video in the same place. You can also do this with Educanon.
