One of the advantages of Twitter is that others can introduce themselves to you easily. @codrtv did that just the other day and I have to say I am very appreciative. This site is real coders talking about real code but they want you to love it and understand it as much as they do. It is also a very real way of using the internet to reach out to others and make themselves known.  Currently they are working on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Coders and the first episode is about pairing. That has such educational relevance for both teachers and students and a paradigm I have pushed on this blog. It is important to get peer review. It is important to do and share. It is important to throw your ideas and work out there and see what others think. In the end you become far more confident, competent and able to learn more effectively because the constant feedback keeps you thinking and in improvement mode. It also increases your network and so you have more resources to sustain you. My group assessment rubrics were exactly about that. Blogging and being on Twitter is always about that. This video frequently makes the point that you can be collaborating on code and embracing peer review but here are times where you just have to shut down and go into your own space and do it your own way. That is true too. There are times for learning by yourself and times for sharing and collaborating. The video also makes the point more than once that if you work collaboratively you are going to produce something far superior and more accurate than if you just work alone. Coders are working internationally because it’s about something which is high level and you work with whom you trust, who is at your level and who can help you. Codr.tv is not just about the code. It shows how coders work, think and how they approach a highly demanding task. As such it is very valuable insight into how you manage something which is very demanding learning and high level performance: the standard internet learning loop – create content, share, get feedback and improve. By having codr.tv we are now included in the loop.
