The New Era of Learning
The direction in which learning is going: personalized, self-directed, grounded in the real world, and blurring the lines between age groups, teachers/students, formal/informal, etc. It taps into people's instincts and desires for play, creativity and meaning. I'm hoping to eventually incorporate this content into a robust web site that will serve as a compendium on this topic.

Collaborative writing is a kind of apex learning activity. The benefits and possibilities surrounding this activity are numerous and multilayered. A collaborative writing exercise, especially that which brings multiple digital technologies into play, creates an environment where reflection, discussion, discernment, and negotiation are vital. Students must write, and they must do so in the space occupied by other students. Their words, not just their thoughts, are in conversation, connected and entwined so that it is the dialogue between them that creates the text, and not any one single author.
