JUNE 19, 2011 Writing & Grammar: What Should Editors Change?
by Jennie Ruby. First, a point of clarification re last week's contest : we had more than two dozen entries, not just several. Second, an excellent question was raised on the blog : how much re-writing can be allowed on something like this before the meaning is changed?When When I set up the contest, I did have in mind just ridding the existing text of redundancies. That is exactly what the majority of contestants did, and I categorized those entries as "editing." " The other entries were complete rewrites; in other words, they were substantive edits.

JUNE 19, 2011 A Game of Phones = A Serious Learning Game at mLearnCon
As I write this I'm flying to mLearnCon on the same flight as Alicia Sanchez (@ gamesczar ) and Kris Rockwell (@ hybridkris and Hybrid Learning ). The pair teamed up this year to create a card game for mLearnCon. While this may seem an odd genre of gaming for an mlearning conference, I trust in their creative collective genius and can't wait to play. We all share, collaborate, and have fun.

VIPLAV BAXI MEANDERINGS tLearning: The next frontier
| SUNDAY, JUNE 19, 2011

On the face of it, portable hand-held devices that can augment learning are a natural ask from the consumer today in many markets. In my opinion, tLearning will succeed where mLearning (m=mobile) failed, primarily because of the increased screen estate and touch based technology makes it viable. Some of the advantages of tLearning include: Ubiquitous learning, portability and ease of use. Here are a few interesting ones. Kineo Brainchild. iProf. Prazas. MORE >>

The theme of the talk was essentially that we have become used to thinking of the educational system as a system to produce the learned rather than a system that fosters learners, and that scale is our biggest challenge today. ‘ As always, would love to hear your comments!
