Alan November is a passionate practioner and advocate for pushing the boundaries of learning in today’s world and he is the first to tell you that it’s not about technology! It’s about creativity, innovation and using the right resources to help students develop critical thinking and global communication skills.
If you look around, it’s not schools leading the world in innovation and creativity – it’s business and industry (think Microsoft, Apple, Toyota etc). And if we’re not careful, they’ll be stepping in to deliver what schools can’t!
Take a look at Alan’s website – it’s a treasure trove of resources for educators and anyone who wants to see how Web 2.0 can be used to build powerful global networks.
