I have to admit to myself (and you) that I just can’t put together cogent, well thought out blogposts when I’m caught up in the swirl of a conference like NECC. Keynotes, debates, concurrent sessions, poster sessions, chance encounters, vendor visits, old friends, new friends… I think I just need to serve things up as little more than 140 character Plurk/Tweets until I get home and can distill some of this overpowering input. So, with that off my chest, I attended our annual birds of a feather Digital Storytelling SIG for just 30 minutes this afternoon and got this gem to share from PBS’s Frontline. They are putting a new spin on “work in progress” and inviting us to not only look and listen in, but also to be part of the story. Digital Nation is a documentary that will air in January 2010. Watch how it progresses and maybe take part in it yourself.
Watch this morning’s debate about the role/future of bricks and mortar schools. Though they declared a single winner, we all win by listening to these well thought out statements by some well known educators and two very eloquent high school students.
