The New York Times Magazine this week has a special edition devoted to Education, Learning and Technology. It is available here. It is an ambitious supplement and I am sure there will be plenty here of interest to colleagues across different subject domains.
I have developed a short presentation on aspects of the open web of learning and the opportunities it creates for teachers in the UK and beyond to fully embrace the web as a platform for collaborative teaching and learning. Many of the examples and ideas were generated by discussions with and presentations given by fellow delegates at the recent Australian MoodleMoot.

It was a pleasure to listen to and meet Dr Curtis Bonk at the recent MoodleMoot in Melbourne. His presentation on future directions for blended online learning using digital tools was staggeringly good and so full of detail and supporting examples from around the world it was hard to keep up and make proper sense of it all. Here he talks to Alan Carrington immediately after his talk in one of Alan’s Between the Buttons podcast (he has some interesting comments on tje iPad as a social learning device).The talk itself can be found here
