Knowledge, Learning, Community
Released in late April, this booklet, containing short articles on five topics (mobile learning, ambient web, human computer interaction, social networking and the broadband home) offers a good and insightful look at trends in learning technology. I like this: "For today s class we will be building a 3D map of the village. First, we'll collect pictures, sounds and anything else of interest from each street. Split into teams of four and take your camera-phones with you. By mid-day we will have built our own virtual map, and then we can get together to plan which parts to research further." Yeah. Forget math and geography and one-hour classes. Move out of the classroom and into the real world. Connected and mobile, integrated into society and learning about it.
