HI Susan.
Thanks for sharing. You share many great things. I want to share this link with you that I feel fits this post. "On The Media" does an annual report on the state of book publishing. I thought the 2011 podcast was remarkable and insightful. The 2012 was almost as good. Here's the link. They create a great podcast. I am happy that I stumbled upon it.

Lucy Wareham's curator insight, March 7, 2013 2:01 AM

This article reminds us that within Technology learning, students spend many hours connected to online communication. As teachers of technology we also need to teach the skills of face to face communication. Students may learn these skills by presenting their ideas to their cohort, ensuring they use all methods of communication. This includes body language, tone of voice and visual presentation of themselves. This is a life skill they can use in later life to present their own technology ideas to the world.
