Just a short post between planes. Yesterday’s blog workshop in Savannah was too much fun for me. I had a group of 18 e-learning types from colleges around the country and they made the day a real conversation about the technologies rather than your typical old training session. We tried to answer the question “Does the Web change everything when it comes to education?” We learned and made blogs and wikis, created Bloglines accounts and started aggregating, and took a look at del.icio.us and Flickr, capped it off with a Skype call to England (which is where I’m at as I write this, having just arrived after a long flight from Atlanta.) Everything just seemed to flow really well from one tool to the next, one question or comment to the next. So there are a few more edbloggers in our midst.
But while the tools are certainly disruptive and potentially powerful, few if any of them really think things in education are going to change anytime soon.
