So Amazing

Somewhere in between professional development, Garage Band, vacationing in Delaware and listening to a ton of podcasts, I found several hours to fiddle with a few new web based creation tools. These tools are for publishing sideshows (VoiceThread), capturing your desktop, (jing) and customizing world maps (LiveSearch).

I also found these links to be very helpful too - Online Media God, Videos for PD from Wesley Fryer, the TheBloggersCafe on and Learning The Guitar by Darren Kuropatwa.

It seems like every thirty days we online learners are being offered better and slicker tools to assist us in creating, learning and collaborating easier, better and more professionally. Today, the ability to create compelling knowledge products and publish that work to a global audience is as simple and as user friendly as it has ever been.

Moreover, when you consider that all learners - students, parents and teachers alike, are now capable of forming highly specialized learning communities – online via RSS, Personalized Start Pages, podcasts, blogs and wikis, it is clear that the traditional "sit and get" approach to high school, college and professional development is quickly becoming a relic of the past, soon to be replaced overall by an astonishing and transparent network of possibilities.

I hope to share, trade and explore those vistas with all of you in the very near future.
