Innovation is life.” Don Tapscott, Grown Up Digital (2008, pp. 6-7) “I would have never known how to blog, use a wiki … a course management system. These new skills … are going to help get my first job.” “I have come to understand and appreciate the importance of … collaboration for this course, other parts of life and for a job.” “Helped me see that turbulence … is to be expected and that it is our job … to turn those problems into opportunities.” Marist Student Testimonials, iLearn Case July 2009 10th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.
