New Internet is about your imagination

The first blog that Richardson created for his high-schoolers in 2002 freed his class from conventional notions of collaboration and data-gathering. Today, he says, “I graze on information and knowledge as I need it—and I know where to find it online.”
—Josh Reynolds

From the CEC Smart Brief:

Former high school English teacher turned ed-tech consultant Will Richardson now travels the country presenting workshops to teachers and administrators on the power of the Internet to transform classroom instruction. Blogs -- such as the wildly popular one his New Jersey pupils created to discuss "The Secret Life of Bees" -- and wikis engage students and tap into the power of collaborative writing, he says.

I am his disciple, obviously. Read my blog entry about him...and his feedback *smile.
