CHALLENGE ! Today, educators are overwhelmed (literally drowning!) by thousands of web 2.0/social media/apps that they can use for learning and teaching. But, where/how to start? How do we choose the right solution for a particular learning context or activity? The LMS can certainly not solve all our learning and teaching needs and requirements.

Talent vs Labour

Learning and Working on the Web

Are you talent or labour? The difference may be very important. According to a recent article in the  New York Times , talent is getting into a position to be able to push capitalism around, but not labour. Talent is extracting more of the pie and getting richer.

Moodle Journal

While our work here at the college continues with the iPad trials, I am always interested to read and discover from the work of others in using tablet technology.
