"Imagine ‘being’ a lion, imagine the sights and sounds you would come across, imagine the challenges you would face to stay alive, to protect your cubs, to ensure your pride’s survival in the face of man-made and natural obstacles. More...

Fitting Your PC In a Pocket
Rory McGreal sent this around - if you think that iPods and Blackberries are something, wait until you can put your desktop computer in your pocket. More...

BloggerCon III: Notes and Observations on the People of Moore's Law

BloggerCon III: Notes and Observations on the People of Moore's Law
Interesting take on the BloggerCon conference just finished in Palo Alto. In most technology conferences, the sponsors of the conference - usually a technology company - assume they have dibs at a speaking slot, typically a keynote. More...

EVOnline 2002 - Webheads Community Event

EVOnline 2002 - Webheads Community Event
Jean Michel Chaupart writes from Colombia: "Teresa Almeida d'Eça (who authored the Online Learning Environments website mentione here recently) teaches english in a high school in Portugal and she is a member of the "WEBHEADS" (me too), a community of practice for languages teachers/professors. And the 'Online Learning Environments'' list is 80% based on language teaching/learning with ICT." What's great is that I just received an email enquiry about where to find information on online language training, and as is so often the case, I don't know something like that off-hand but I just know it's out there.

Text Readability

Text Readability
Pat Lund describes the site: "It's an experiment in text readability that looks at alignment & case, font, contrast, and line length. If you click on one of the links to the expiraments, you have the option of either participating in the study and then seeing the results when you're finished, or just seeing the results right away." The sample size is pretty small (400 or so) but already the results are a little surprising. More...

The Use of Computer and Video Games for Learning

The Use of Computer and Video Games for Learning
George Siemens describes this as "probably the most complete analysis I've encountered." I have to agree. A comprehensive review of the literature on computer gaming as it applies to education, with overviews of the learning impact, psychological impact, and more. More...

Teaching History with Technology Newsletter

Teaching History with Technology Newsletter
I spent a good part of my morning with this newsletter (I spent the rest of it writing a spam trapper for my discussion list). What gets me about this newsletter - and it's one of many I see like this - is that it lists resource after resource after resource, none of which are learning objects in any real sense, all of which are reusable (that's why they're in the newsletter), and all of which disappear from sight almost as soon as they're created, because we don't have a simple system like RSS for learning resources.

Reading between the Headlines

Reading between the Headlines
Nice article that sees the patterns in the links and observes, "higher education and scholarly inquiry sit at the nexus of four important factors: (1) communications technology; (2) the communications business; (3) content development; and (4) the business (or sale) of content." What does that mean? Everybody in content-based industries - and that includes education - will have to learn to live in a new reality. More...
