NITLE Summit Conference Blogging Cont...

I've finally gotten 30 minutes to myself and, as promised(!), a few more notes from the meeting.

Starting backwards, last night's keynote from Michael Wesch was entrhalling. If you don't read Wired or have a clue to who he is, check out his blog, or, better yet, check out what his students have done:

Exciting stuff...

I've been playing ayiti: the cost of life. Lot's o' fun. I'm not--or rather my family is not--doing very well, but, then again, I just started.

I think I'll give this to my students in a couple of weeks and see where it leads us, and adding in a discussion question with moodle for tips, tricks and lessons learned... Should be interesting.

That's it for now. I've got to get ready for more conferencing.

NITLE Conference blogging

It's been a good summit so far and I plan on updating this a little later to flesh out the information. I would have been doing that as I went if wireless had been working. Of course, it wasn't.

Here are some themes I will blog on more extensively : ayiti (a game based on life in haiti), twitter, email outsourcing, jaiku, shadow IT,, nanogong...

For now, I'm off to the poster sessions where I really want to hear about a new wiki-style book tool.

Ciao, for now.
