Hi,
Suzie Boss and I wrote a book but I won't be shilling here! What we've found in the process of writing is that we're part of a larger conversation around the learning functions of digital tools. We're especially interested in project-based learning. Please consider joining the community of interest forming around "reinventing" the learning experience in these different environments:

I'd like to know more about your book, actually. But I checked out your blog site and will keep it in my Bloglines and follow your progress from there. It sounds like some interesting project-based activities and thinking is going on with you and your colleagues.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Kevin. Would you invite me as a friend again?

Wow, synchronicity.

Jane, I met Suzie briefly last week at NECC. We were talking about Clay Burell's global cooling project as an example of project-based global learning. I just posted about it moments ago and spotted your post in the neighborhood, as it were. Looking forward to reading your book and checking out the blog.

Hi Jane, thanks for introducing yourself. I'll take a look at the sites you mentioned.

To me the greatest challenge of using technology to make a difference in the world is the lack of time to do every thing I'd like to do. Thus, the solution to that is to increase the manpower available to me.

That could mean recruiting volunteers who work at my site in Chicago, and it could mean recruiting volunteers who work with me virtually.

However, the greatest potential is to unleash the power of young people, working from schools and colleges all over the world, in teams, or individually. I'd like to find places where others are talking about this and innovating actions that leads to the growth of such teams.

Thanks for checking us out, Dan. Your last paragraph got me where I live - my coauthor Suzie Boss and I with others operate a nonprofit edu organization focused on informal education and community change. I think you and we connect on a lot of levels. Please check out the Learning Innovation Technology Consortium (lit-see) at www.learninginnovation.org

I am boycotting Flickr because of their censoring (they call it filtering) of some European markets. I have moved to another platform.

Can you tell me more? I don't know about this. Thank you.

Wow- I am just learning about this and you are reinventing it! Would love to read your book and get some of your ideas. I am teaching 7th grade science, a new crurriculum for me. I have 20 years experience of creative teaching, but just coming aboard the instructional media train. Any starters would be helpful!
