"Each edition of the Horizon Report introduces six emerging technologies or practices that are likely to enter mainstream use in learning-focused organizations within three adoption horizons over the next one to five years." This particular edition seems especially relevant to what's happening with online social media in education (including the edublogosphere and edutwitterverse for instance).

Another project from Steve Hargadon... coming soon. I'm interested...

A massive list of educators using twitter... categorized by job role... including principals and much much more. This is a good place for a beginner to add individuals to their Personal Learning Network.

This is awesome... attendees at Leslie Fisher's iPhone in Education workshop on Saturday all raise their iPhones for the camera. Cool shot.

I also hadn't seen this until yesterday's workshop... it's a list of Social Networks created for educational purposes, not unlike the list of wikis at http://educationalwikis.wikispaces.com or the list of blogs at http://www.supportblogging.com.

A brief article: "Innovations are popping up everywhere as educators find more uses for Twitter and other social media tools to cater to 21st century students."

If you haven't seen it (and want to), here's a 35 minute speech from Barack Obama on his education policy. I've reviewed it in this blog before - and may post a review of this video later.

Edmodo allows you to create a sort of closed social microblogging enviornment (like twitter) for students and teachers. However, for "real life" use, it's kinda lame. You have to know a person or group to publish anything. Also, for "safe" school use, it seems odd that as you type in a user name it autosuggests existing users.

I've discussed Obama's education plan (and McCain's) on this blog before. It's about time for me to revisit those plans (and others) here. In the meantime, here's a fairly succinct article.

This post might be a good discussion starter - even among k12 educators: "Associate Professor David Wiley, Ph.D., raised more than a few eyebrows when he informed panel members that higher education in America was 'in very real danger of becoming irreleva

A thoughtful post from Clarence Fisher: "How can we customize the experience for each of the learners we work with and still remain sane? A lot of it revolves around the tools we use."

I think this is the most important new post I've seen from the edublogosphere for a while (way to get out of the echo chamber, Will). I think this issue is central to our mission as educators today.

from eSchool news: "Education advisors for presumptive presidential nominees John McCain (R) and Barack Obama (D) outlined the candidates' stances on key issues June 6, with both emphasizing a larger role for technology in schools."

I talk a lot about subversive teaching. Carl Chew, a science teacher in Seattle, is walking the talk. Join Steve Dembo in giving Carl an online standing ovation!

This is a new workshop wiki for a Document Cameras in Education workshop I'm doing in Laguna Beach. Feel free to use it (and contribute to it) as long as you give attribution and share-alike. ;)

To save you from exhibiting the same sort of ignorance I did when asking my cousin about the name of her school, here's some information on Sojourner Truth. What a amazing (and sobering) story.

My cousin Channa is starting a charter school in the New Orleans Recovery School District. It's a very exciting project and I wanted to share it with you all.

This post caught my eye among the masses of unread items in my reader... and I couldn't agree more. I felt this way on school sites, and I feel this way at conferences and workshops now. I try to maximize hallway time - even online using Twitter etc.
