Friday Live Session Cancelled

Because of the ongoing sound problems, we will no longer be using OpenMeetings. A back-up solution is being set up, but there is a time delay in setting it up. Thus, we will not be hosting a live online session today. Next week we will be back to normal operations.

A Gathering of Ideas
I write this commentary for a discussion taking place at the Institute for Distributed Creativity (iDC) discussion list. And while it wasn't intended to be a part of this course, some in the discussion have suggested that it fits the course themes very well.

"Making change happen in organizations has been a huge topic for discussion and research" Well, I feel like it is impossible...#CritLit2010

...So, in Education, are the changes quite possible? I'd like someone to say: YES!!! #CritLit2010

Paulo Freire, brazilian sociologist, has written interesting material about critical thinking, and I'm glad to have read him...#CritLit2010
