  9. Avoiding the B word<br />What if we didn’t understand what we do in education with blogs as “blogging” but as a quick and easy way to publish online within a learning community? Or a place to feature a portfolio of students’ best work? Or a site where professors and staff track their professional and personal development? <br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/bionicteaching/2554380692/<br />

  13. Talking about sharing<br />I have been asked to participate in many projects over the years that start once … organizations notice that they have a lot in common with others and decide that it would be a good idea to collaborate, to share “best practices” or “data” or whatever...<br />But inevitably, these projects spend an enormous amount of time defining what is to be shared, figuring out how to share it, setting up the mechanisms to share it, and then…not really sharing much.”<br />Now I contrast that with the learning networks which I inhabit, and in which every single day I share my learning and have knowledge and learning shared back with me. I know it works.(Scott Leslie)<br />Dominoes - http://www.flickr.com/photos/erica_marshall/3233372652/<br />
