Education and Learning Ideas from a middle school teacher
This blog is written by Sheri Edwards, a middle school teacher from Washington State whom I've met through on-line cMOOCs in the years since 2013. In her introduction she writes "It’s impossible to imagine what will be in the next few years because of the frequent advances and changes in technology, but I do know that my students needed me to be informed and engaged, leading with the educational transformation occurring right now. For them to be successful, they need guidance in the tools they choose to use. Hopefully, schools will allow those tools in the classroom so that all educators can “bring instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world.”. Subscribe to the blog and follow her ideas and you'll open yourself to a network of innovative thinkers.

Peeragology Handbook - techniques for peer learning and peer knowledge production

With OER, wikis, the internet, Free Software and mobile networks, groups of people can learn, connect and create knowledge together inside and outside of formal institutions in ways never before possible.
