Read further and see what you think about the prospect of Google owning the Motorola mobile hardware manufacturing practice and resources, and what that could mean for those of us who own Motorola Droid phones.

Sparks in Google+ Social Networking Environment

Keep your team up-to-date with Sparks

Another great feature that differentiates Google+ from Facebook is Sparks. It lets users define an interest (robotics, for example), and then trawls the web looking for articles related to that interest, making it easy for users to find relevant articles to share. This could be useful in the workplace for research or keeping abreast of industry news, for example, helping users to stay up-to-date with topics of interest to them and their team, and then easily share and discuss any particularly interesting bits of information.

This is a neat idea, so I’m checking this out — especially for its usefulness in extending the classroom into the online arena.

Reason For AND Against Blogging

9. Because it forces you to do your homework (Rodolpho Arruda)

8. Because this is how you are going to learn in the future.

“This is the difference represented in the shift from traditional classroom based learning and network learning. The idea of the latter is that learning occurs when the learner immerses him or herself in a community of practice, learning by performing authentic tasks, learning by interacting with and becoming a member of the community.” (Stephen Downes)

I thought this was refreshingly honest and thought-provoking at the same time. A decent argument “both” ways

Making Studying Feel Like Facebook – The Chronicle

I’ve been making suggestions like this in my own learning environments to make those environments more like the places we students “live” anyway, and more conducive to the on-the-go mobile tech we can’t live without.

The Kno – What the iPad SHOULD have been?

OMG… I WANT ONE! This is the one reason I haven’t taken the iPad dive yet — because it doesn’t really cater to the needs of an education professional or career student like myself. Not enough textbooks on the iPad platform, and that’s where it’s real usefulness would have lay for me. Folks know I’m a Mac junkie, but this???
This is the way school, reading, studying and homework ought to be already!!!
