Web-based tools like Google Docs, Twitter, wordpress, delicious, etc. The development of smart phones over the last several years makes this model of data creation/access particularly valuable. With MobileMe and LiveMesh, we get the additional value of being able to store resources - via the cloud - across multiple devices. Good ol’ redundancy. All is not well, however.

Before there were traditional classrooms (as we know them now), we relied hugely on elders to impart knowledge.We then moved on to the more tested-and-tried form of teaching – classroom training. But lately, a new kind of learning has been doing the rounds that has garnered great recognition. I am talking about e-learning, of course.

    As the people providing them with learning, we need to challenge our assumptions about how learners use technology – which methods need updating and which are constantly effective. Prensky’s metaphor of people being digital natives (intuitively understanding how recent technology works) or digital immigrants (needing support/ training in order to grasp new technology) seems wonderfully rich to me. Here’s an example from recent life. The other day we were visiting one of my wife’s godsons who was proudly showing off his Wii. We had a go at the tennis game.

    Enclosure is a compelling way to provide meaning. In the very early stages of vision—before we’re really conscious of it—our perceptual processes are humming away, attempting to organize the sensory data from our eyes into something that might be meaningful. Both the Gestalt psychologists and modern perceptual researchers realized that perception tends to organize information into wholes, rather than parts. For example, you’re most likely grouping the orange shapes above into an arrow, rather than seeing them as separate elements. Grouping by Boundary or Enclosure.
