This a link to an edited version of the Elluminate Live! broadcast I held on May 18, 2010 for Wilkes course EDIM514. It was a great experience to host and manage a live session and discussion. Thanks to those who were able to participate. The first half of the video is my presentation and the second half is the ensuing discussion. Enjoy the broadcast and add your comments to the Blog.

Back at School

It’s time for school, children! I am back in class, this time taking EDIM 507 or “Using Technology to Support Creativity.”

The class consists of mostly American teachers with 3 Canadians thrown into the mix. The focus will be on how globalization impacts what happens in education. Should be some opportunities for some excellent dialogue.
