ePoster Crowd-Sourced #goodtech

Goldbach, Bernard (2014) ePoster Crowd-Sourced #goodtech. In: The 15th Educational Technology Conference of the Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA). May 29th and 30th, UCD, Dublin, Ireland.


This ePoster is a summary of the Top Ten Good Tech Items crowd-sourced from first through fourth year students in the Limerick Institute of Technology. The ePoster outlines a process that integrated a series of folders accessed and updated by students on This collaborative process ensured a measure of self-directed learning by students because full access to Dropbox is blocked by university network administrators. The ePoster acknowledges the unassisted learning process before showing the results of the Top Ten Good Tech items. At the time of submission of the ePoster abstract, the crowd-sourcing process for the most-preferred tech items had not finished. However, the top four appear to be Google Drive, Evernote, Wikiweb and Dropbox. The ePoster cross-references inputs from online communities using the #edchatie and #ictedu hashtags because those communities helped inform the judgments of the third level students who contributed to the development of this ePoster. A shortened URL and QR code, prominently displayed side-by-side on the ePoster, will lead viewers to the .epub and .mobi file formats of #goodtech for immediate download and archiving on handsets.
