  42. 42. Learning is Now!What a great model for the immediacy of learning that can happen thesedays, and the relevance. When you think about all of the things that yourstudents could learn and practice here, interviewing skills, geography andgeology, information research, retrieval, editing, organization and sharing,all in the larger context of perhaps assisting those in need who werethousands of kilometers away. I want to make the point, however, that itsall grounded in your own understanding of these technologies and the waysin which they can help us connect. If you didnt have that knowledge andexperience, this probably would not have happened, and that really is thegoal of what were all trying to do here, get more comfortable in using thesetechnologies to learn in our own practice. Thanks so much for sharing thisgreat snippet of learning from your classroom.Will Richardson comment on blog post

I asked a lot of questions I was very interested in what we were learning for example……how long have you been using scratch? she had been using it for 3 years which means she has a lot of experience with scratch.
