Engaging in the Discussion

Well, it is a bit hypocritical of me to post these links right now, as I have not had a chance to even check email until today, let alone become a part of these conversations.

But, there are a few things going on right now that are worth checking out.

First, I got an email about this: “Britannica’s new forum on “Brave New Classroom 2.0” is live, and we welcome your comments, as we discuss whether technology is improving or hindering learning (and the teaching of writing) in schools.”

Second, K12 Online and Not K12 Online both launched. Bud discusses the idea behind Not K12 Online.

That’s about it for now. I hope to have some time for blogging here in the near future, but we all know how that goes! At least the Halloween (sugar) rush is almost over…
