But are you as good as your last blog? Does yesterday's blog post still hold currency or must you continually press forward to write better, to expand on your ideas and elaborate your understanding of your subject?

DECEMBER 4, 2009
The ASTD Big question this month is an annual question: What did you learn about learning in 2009? So one of the tasks I will do to answer this question is to see what posts were the Best of 2009 from several different sources. This entry was made because I was doing a presentation on the topics and I wanted to use my blog as the platform for presenting the information and as a "leave behind" resource so that the teachers could reference and find the games all in one place when they wanted to use them for the classroom.

The Best EDU Blogs on the Planet!
SEPTEMBER 11, 2009
TOP BLOGS! blogs or sites of this and that. Most of them just vomit out lists, without putting much effort to justify their claims, or at least say why the selected blogs should be on the list. Actually, what I would want to see is simply what so special about the blog selected, and why should I follow it. Probably because my blog at that time (2007) was rather unknown.

Challenge to Learn
APRIL 7, 2012
When I started my blog in December 2009 I was curious what it would be like to blog and I wanted to improve my English (I’m still working on that). My blog now has an average of almost a 100 views per day. The fact that you have an audience makes a big difference, it turns your blog from a diary into a publication and most important: you get feedback. But that has now shifted. I use my blog to try out ideas. The first time I used my blog for this purpose was when I became CEO of easygenerator. Feedback. Writing on demand. Quit cool!

When I started this, I had no idea how much I would learn through blogging and how many wonderful people I would get to know.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
MARCH 16, 2009
News feeds, podcasts, blogs, wikis and discussion forums. Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Students morphed into participants , empowered to seek new knowledge and understanding for themselves, in the context of their own unique, individual experiences. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope. But is this gradient a fair representation? The real world.
