to those that brought about the All New Public Education project (http://www.allnewpubliceducation.com), but he stopped short of telling us how he wanted to bring about the change he advocates. Is that covered in his book? He has not responded to efforts to contact him to enlist his support and input to the ANPE effort, any ideas?
As for SM in education, oh yes! Social media is the natural progression of offline human interaction and desire to learn meeting global connectivity technology. Education is a perfect use of crowdsourcing to search out sources, ideas, results, and meld individual efforts into a group result. The growing capability to exchange rich multimedia in real time will yield exciting results. Imagine a video presentation of a physics research project developed by 6 students in 3 states and 4 countries - over the course of a weekend. All 6 contribute, all 6 turn in the video for their respective physics classes. In the process, all learn more about each other and their respective environments.
The recent challenges to our economy are going to drive a lot of people of all ages to re-educate themselves and the older generations will benefit from the youth's fascination with staying connected and all the tools that have been driven by that desire.
Nice work in NFN, too!…
