In the mixer

Learning with 'e's

It's a blend we are taking an increasing interest in, throughout the education community. My view is that social learning amplifies personal learning, and all can benefit from the knowledge of each individual in the community. In education we call these modes synchronous and asynchronous, and each has its own benefits. Blended. It used to be something you did in the kitchen. With a machine.
