Charles Leadbeater and The Terminator

......those are the first two things i think of when i viewed these videos.

I think there is a massive potential for user involvement in everything especially the world of business as something like eBay has already demonstrated (hence the reference for Charles Leadbeater

The next trick is to get that same level of user interaction into learning. How? Not sure, but i hope we can learn to do some of that together over the next few days.

On to the Terminator reference - isn't some of this quite scary? Or is it just me? I suppose the power and potential of Web 2.0 makes me think about SkyNet! But i'd prefer to focus on the positive benefits of new technologies. Learning should be multi-way and therefore for it to reach its true potential we as the "leaders" of that learning have to find a way to fully engage our students. How? Again, not sure, but i look forward to the journey.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the link. It certainly involves a lot of trust and confidence to put your work online as it's still emerging and to invite ongoing feedback.

I agree with your sentiments about new technologies: both exciting and daunting at the same time but with massive potential for learning.
