Learning through interactions

First from Clarence and then from Will a link to this CNET article. What is so interesting is to see what it is in the article that sticks out to people.

Clarence writes:

He advocates many of the things that we often talk about in the edublogosphere in response to changes needed in education.

Will writes:

To me, this is the one biggest advantages of the Read/Write Web, the
ability to connect to others who are passionate about whatever it is
that you want to learn. How rare is it to have that happen in physical
space, where everyone in the room is ready and excited to learn?

For me:

“We are learning in and through our interactions with others while doing real things,”

That’s what this is about. Interacting with others while we do real things…the real thing being teaching. There are more and more projects starting up that take what this edblogosphere has been doing and talking about and bringing it in the classroom. The one project to keep your eye on right now is the flat classroom project by Vicki Davis and Julie Lindsay. A perfect example of what these tools allow us to do in the classroom.

  1. I appreciate your participation in this project as a judge. You are a visionary and have always inspired me with your real from-the-classroom words. It is about being real. I think many of us shun the “not so real” things we’ve heard in the past from those who have never been in the classroom. I’m delighted to see an emergence of educational thought leaders (aka blogosphere, podosphere, etc.) who are in the midst of real world experiences so that we can truly innovate together.
