“Since it was started in March I have been active in Jane Hart’s highly successful Social Learning Community which now has over 700 members drawn globally from the whole spectrum of learning. It has become the community of choice for many leading thinkers in learning. But a few days ago, Jane Hart asked me to take a look at her new initiative, the Share&Learn collaboration platform, which she launched earlier this week.
Jane’s explanation of the philosophy underpinning Share&Learn was enough for me to explore thoroughly. When I saw the practical application of her thinking I recognised that Share&Learn may well in future be recognised as a tipping point in our understanding of learning, and heralds a new era in the way learning is viewed and supported.

I have been awaiting with eager anticipation the Moodle book on a subject dear to my heart. Well today it arrived – Moodle 1.9 For Second Language Teaching by Jeff Stanford – and what an admirable tome it is! Respect to that man for making it so comprehensive! It goes thoroughly through the four skills of language teaching – Speaking, Listening Reading and Writing, with a plethora of common sense and inspired suggestions for delivering learning via Moodle.

This document started out as a set of notes on the Andrew Keen / David Weinberger debates which I had planned to use in preparation for an interview with Mark Pegrum Jan 31, 2010. In that interview, Mark raised the question "What are the key literacies we and our students need in a digital world?" Answers to that question came to me in a set of podcasts from the K-12 Online Conference 2009. The annotated list (this document) and links to the presentation can be found at http://delicious.com/vancestevens/k12online09+evomlit (and theoretically at http://delicious.com/tag/k12online09+evomlit though they haven't all propogated that far yet? (not sure)

google_waveis a grand vision for the direction Google sees the web heading towards with the move to the HTML 5 standard. While we’re not there yet, all the major browser players besides Microsoft are aligned Google wants to take it one step further with a brand new method of communication for this new era with Google Wave.
Everyone uses email and instant messaging on the web now, but imagine if you could tie those two forms of communication together and add a load of functionality on top of it. At its most fundamental form, that’s essentially what Wave is. Developed by brothers Lars and Jens Rasmussen and Stephanie Hannon out of Google’s Sydney, Australia offices, Wave was born out of the idea that email and instant messaging, as successful as they still are, were both created a very long time ago. We now have a much more robust web full of content and brimming with a desire to share stuff. Or as Lars Rasumussen put it, “Wave is what email would look like if it were invented today.”

April 16 is the 50th anniversary of the publication of a little book that is loved and admired throughout American academe. Celebrations, readings, and toasts are being held, and a commemorative edition has been released.
I won't be celebrating.
The Elements of Style does not deserve the enormous esteem in which it is held by American college graduates. Its advice ranges from limp platitudes to inconsistent nonsense. Its enormous influence has not improved American students' grasp of English grammar; it has significantly degraded it.
