I’ve got an article in the first issue of Educating Modern Learners
I need your input and help. It’s for a good cause. I’m a firm believer that educational innovation is a bottom-up process. Could you help me (and others) prove that? I’ll try and keep this as brief as possible if you promise to do the background reading and try to contribute in some way. :-p […]

For what it’s worth, I’m going to chip in with my $0.02 as Karyn has […]
