This week we will explore mobile video production and augmentation via geolocation, and invite participants to answer a short survey on their experiences of the Scholarship Of Technology Enhanced Learning (SOTEL). You will be invited via your #mosomelt signup email address to collaboratively edit an interactive Google Map, and add a point of interest (POI) with a link to an embedded mobile video or other online mobile content you have created (YouTube, Vimeo, Vine…). The Map has three layers – one for each cohort of #mosomelt participants, 2017, 2016, and 2015 – please add your POI to the 2017 layer by making sure this layer is highlighted before adding your POI. To add a POI you can either search for a location and then add that location to the map then edit it, or drag and drop a ‘PIN’ to create and add a new POI to edit. To date the Map has been viewed 829 times (over 700 in the past year) – let’s see how many views we can get via the 2017 participants Tweeting the view only link once you’ve added your POIs!
You can view a link to the collaborative Map through the #mosomelt G+ Community and via the following publicly viewable link (Only invited participants can edit the map): https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQakCH28-qxU.ks_HQmVOzuKo&usp=sharing

This exercise explores the affordance of smart mobile devices to use their built in GPS and content creation tools (camera, audio and text) to geotag user generated content and create user-generated contexts. User-generated contexts add a contextual layer of information that locates events and experiences within their specific geographic location. How can this add value and context to learning activities and experiences within your own context?
