Embracing or Eschewing?

I'm still feeling crummy, physically, but in checking Facebook this morning, I read this great article posted by Mashable. I get so excited when I think about the possibilities of using technology to engage young people in learning! There are so many possibilities!

Another article in Mashable today talks about a new project of Tim Burton where you (yes, you!) can participate in creating a story with him! Read more about it here. If THAT doesn't get you and the kids you know excited about web 2.0, I don't know what will!

I'm afraid my brain is too addled to say much more on the topic today. Talk amongst yourselves . . .
