Curiosity, critical thinking and agency as responses to the Australian Bushfire Crisis ... - 2 views

    The bushfire crisis that is currently impacting Australia is beyond devastating. The scale of these fires defies the imagination. For so long now we have lived with skies laden with smoke as a constant and inescapable reminder that this is not an ordinary summer. This is weather and drought at its most extreme. Our only salvation will be rain but this is not the season for that and the long term forecasts are not promising. Our young people, in particular, will be affected and will need special care in the weeks and months to come. What might this mean for schools and for student agency?

The Cloud and Collaboration - 0 views

    In this presentation I describe the concept of the internet as a form of global consciousness. I look at the idea of human nature as it has traditionally been represented but suggest that a more appropriate model is that of a collection of neurons. With this model I analyse what a global consciousness would look like - not collaboration, as in the organization of a company or a nation, but cooperation, as in the actions of autonomous but interdependent and connected individuals

21st C Literacy Ave Home - 0 views

    On my blog, mostly geared towards educational thoughts, reflections, and motivations, I am showing examples of mixing various web2.0 tools together. During the summer, I have a form that the reader can complete on summer reading interests. Each Monday, I hope to post a summary of what those participating have shared from around the world. And then, of course comments are welcomed. Thus, this is a real connecting use of the Internet, offering lots of participation and engaging thoughts!
