The Big Question: Time Spent

Upside Learning

The Big Question posed on Learning Circuits this time is thought provoking - Where is your time spent? Games now have online social components, so it’s no longer an isolated experience. These days, I coordinate Warcraft raids with a hundred or so clan members, go on quests, and create my own levels/maps for others to play - all part of the social game experience. I spend between 3-5 hours on new things, reading blogs, blogging, twitter, social networks.

by Kevin on June 7th, 2010 The Big Question at the Learning Circuit’s Blog for June is “What Tools Should We Learn?” Social Networking/Bookmarking This is not so much a tool as it is a cultural shift in how we communicate and share.
