Learning with e's

This morning I happened to stumble upon an interesting Twitter stream hashtag - #qaz11 - which I quickly realised was being generated by a group of students in the care of my old friend Jose Luis Garcia (well worth following him on Twitter: @JL3001, over at the University of Cantabria in Spain. I want to inspire you to reach farther. Reach further - and become a worldwide educator.

Open door classrooms

The next step would be to enable live web streaming, dynamic social networking and Twitter backchannels to operate while classroom sessions are in progress. with the advent of personal handheld devices, how long will it be before classroom learning is streamed out into the world regularly?

For me, No. 6 has been the best of the series so far.

Synching feelings

certainly think long and hard about what I write on this blog, because with between 1000-2000 views per day, and a stream of comments coming in from those who either agree or disagree with my views, I sure feel as though I am being peer reviewed. How can we synchronise our activities if there is not a common understanding of what needs to be done? But it's not plain sailing.
