Peer Learning Handbook |

"The editors of the Peeragogy Handbook are delighted to announce that the revised, second edition of the Handbook (“Version 2″) will be published on Public Domain Day 2014 (1 Jan. ’14). The Handbook is the world’s first book to present Peeragogy, a synthesis of techniques for collaborative learning and collaborative work. Itself the result of the techniques it presents, this version features a new Foreword from the Internet pioneer and collaboration thinker, Stanford University educator, and founding editor of the Handbook, Howard Rheingold.


The Handbook has drawn praise from leading Peer-to-Peer theorist Michel Bauwens, Research Director of the Free/Libre Open Knowledge Society (a project at the Instituto de Altos Estudios Nacionales (IAEN) national university in Ecuador, with support of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Human Resource and Knowledge): “Rheingold and a great team of collaborators have preceded the rest of humanity in exploring the new dynamics of technologically-enhanced peer learning,” said Bauwens." -- From Source:

Future Trends in Technology and Education

Future Trends in Technology and Education | Open Research & Learning |

"Future Trends in Technology and Education is a monthly report. It surveys recent developments in how education is changing, primarily under the impact of digital technologies. Its purpose is to help educators, policy-makers, and the public think about the future of teaching, learning, research, and institutions.


Every month FTTE aggregates recent developments, checking them against previously-identified trendlines. As certain trends build in support and significance, the report recommends watching them for future impact. FTTE also notes trends which appear to be declining in significance."

ghbrett's insight:

Bryan Alexander is not only one of the leading Thought Leaders of Technology for Education, Training, and Research; he is one of the most scholarly, well grounded, sharing people I know. His work is based on fact with a dab of opinion from others as well as himself. His eyes, ears, and haptic senses are sensitive to opportunities and trends. Bryan's voice asks the difficult but important questions. Then his synthesis of this input is shared openly with us. He is an essential part of the future. That is why you should quickly take advantage of his offer to share his new monthly report "Future Trends in Technology and Education."
