Vance Stevens's insight:

This was a provocative session with good natured repartee from participants. John had instigated the discussion by challenging Jeff Lebow to patch him into HoA via phone. "Jeff was marvelous to behold on the yet-to-be broadcast Hangout as he started thinking and muttering through what he would need to do to have us all join him in Skype, and how he would patch that in through the HoA." Unfortunately that's not on the recording, but what ensued is archived here.

Vance Stevens's insight:

Klaus Michelsen's topic on Social business and blended learning in cash-strapped Lima public schools? Panacea or deadly combination? is quite interesting. Social Business is business that is not run for profit maximization but to solve a social problem. The model is guided by the ideas of Bangladeshi micro-financier Muhammed Yunnis, and I would say is commensurate as well with those of Chilean "barefoot economist" Manfred Max-Neef. These were discussed in the context of Klaus's research results on attitudes of teachers he trained for blended learning in "cash-strapped" Lima public schools.

Marijana Smolčec explained on Learning2gether how her European Comenius project connected students from 4-countries on a project where they simulated forming companies in their respective countries based on wholesome foods produced locally in each country, and how their funding allowed them to non-virtually transport the students to each of the 4 countries for events ranging from farmers’ markets that were in fact set up for the project (but in the videos look like the real thing), job interviews for one of the companies, and so on. There is some amazing work reported here, archived in YouTube format with mp3 podcast download available.
