Yesterday was the launch of a new project for me, Learn E-nabling, a collaborative website I have set up with international, cross-sector representation from people in the e-learning coordinator type roles. My reasons for devoting my time to the project and I would hope a shared view of all those involved, are set out here. I really hope we can spark some real insight into many facets of education in today’s’ schools in different parts of the world and the complexities of pedagogical and technological changes, if they are indeed happening as some would have us believe.
For me though, there is another rather exciting side to this. The concept of an individual within a team; a collaborative blog, posting his/her viewpoints and then the rest of the team commenting on that. Then that post and the comments are publicised via online mediums (Twitter, etc). This provides not only the original authors’ views but the critique of that, the discussion, the comments. To me, this provides an opportunity to join a little discussion rather than just read a post. Almost, like a mini-forum. Now, I don’t know if this has been done before. Perhaps, it is a successful and well-used model. However, it is not something I can recall coming across.
The first post and the subsequent comments are here. I hope you can add yours to that post and the many posts that will follow
