Earlier this week Laura Czerniewicz posed an interesting and entertaining question on twitter…
"What would be the title of your autobiography?" I am serious. Think about it you in the Twitterverse!
I am interested to know.
This was the most difficult question I was asked as one of the ten OEB speaker questions https://t.co/v1kEk3CJiH

I’ve written on this blog before about the difficulty of explaining what my job as a learning technologist involves, (What do you do? Starting out on CMALT), so I was completely stumped by Laura’s question. When in doubt, the best course of action is always to ask twitter, and the results, which were clever, enlightening and funny, did not disappoint. Come to think of it, clever, enlightening and funny is also a pretty good description of the learning technology community on twitter 🙂

So, if you’re taking suggestions from the gallery…. “Lorna is flying” or “Figure 3.14 Flying Home” might be niche and lacks all the things. It’s a bit long but “An open view: in flight reflections on landscapes of life, education, and dance” . [there’s probably other words]

John’s suggestion refers to the fact that I have the rare honour of being immortalised in the IMS Question And Test Interoperability (QTI) specification. Somewhere, buried in the voluminous spec documents, is an example of a multiple choice question along the lines of “Lorna is flying home, which airport is closest to her home town?”
“A sea shanty on openness”? Or “A bit salty”? 😀

Sweet and salty?

Ah, autocorrected. I meant to say ‘Flights of FanCCy’
