- trends that will impact education
Dr. Etienne Wenger , a globally recognized thought leader in the field of communities of practice and co-author of the “Technology for Communities” weblog;
"the very characteristics that make communities of practice a good fit for stewarding knowledge—autonomy, practitioner-orientation, informality, crossing boundaries—are also characteristics that make them a challenge for traditional hierarchical organizations. How this challenge is going to affect these organizations remains to be seen."
Increasing our learning capability is therefore an urgent imperative. But in order to do so, we need new models about how to proceed and new visions of what is possible. - taken from:
Carol Daunt, an experienced educator and businesswoman who has been a visionary in the design, application and effective use of eCollaboration technologies;
Julia Shildmyer-Heighway, the Director of Content Services for the Centre for Interactive Learning and Collaboration, who works with over 140 organizations that deliver educational programming to schools through videoconferencing and supportive technologies; and
Ted McCain, an innovator and pioneer in technology education, who has written or co-written numerous books on the future and effective teaching with technology.
