    • SassyCat @Alabamiemamie...there is no "start" menu on a chromebook. just a few icons of chrome (to open browser) gmail, google search page, google docs and youtubeand my apps. I haven't fully played around with it. I have played with windows 8. it reminds me of a windows smartphone. it's somewhat easy only after you've played around with it a while. yeah i had XP (still do) i'll probably go down to my hook-up and get a "used" tower for $75-150. This chromebook runs just that..everything google with chrome as the browser. Not bad. Like i said it really serves it's purpose. I'm very satisfied with it. thanks for the comment :)

    • andymooseman I can see that "use it, or lose it" point of view & may well face that myself, when the classes stop. I'd sure like to come to California again & the sooner the better as far as i'm concerned.
    • kenrg I do best with languages through full immersion. If I'm not using it daily, I lose it. Glad you're enjoying your Spanish class, though - it'll really help for the next time you're out here in California.

    • electricchalk Excellent! :) Recording of a British academic, captured in Hasselt, Belgium and listened to in Oklahoma. I love the internet! I was really please Guy agreed to do this. He's been a tutor on a couple of modules on a course I'm doing and he has a very interesting take on the purpose(s) of education and learning. Feel a bit guilty as I sprang the last question on him at the last minute but he didn't seem to mind. I agree with you that there should be many approaches. Politically in the UK at the moment there are a few powerful people with a very singular view of what education should be and it seems to reflect the education they had 30 years ago. I think they view a pluralistic approach as synonymous with unacceptable risk and relinquishing control. As far as Guy's view goes, I think I see it as a container for a range of educational experiences and approaches. I quite like his idea that we are all apprentices in some things and that this process starts when we are very young. My daughter is 6 and already calls herself as a scientist, not just someone who learns about science.
    • wfryer I really enjoyed listening to this from here in Oklahoma City, USA. :-) I agree with Guy that we need more people creatively thinking outside the box about what this new, blended educational experience can and should look like. I am wondering if that vision will be the same for all learners, however? I think one of the traps we tend to get into with education and "school" is thinking in monolithic terms. I think we probably need to be visualizing multiple models and possibilities, because 1 size has never "fitted all" and shouldn't in the future.

    • moodlefan From TED Talk blurb: "MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn."

    • allanadl If you put “learning spaces” as a term in Google you get 214,000 hits and EDUCAUSE in the USA has published a major work on it worth a read – the link will be on the comment board at http://tinyurl.com/buttonscomment. It is a hot subject in Learning and Teaching and it was great to chat to Professor Mike Keppell, the president of ASCILITE (Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education) about this. Mike is the Director of the Flexible Learning Institute at Charles Sturt University and he was visiting Adelaide. I asked Mike what does a classroom look like? He talks about how “space” has changed and how we need to integrate physical and virtual learning environments. He goes on to explain that a classroom is no longer four walls, and that where the students are is where they learn. Mike also gives some hints how a teacher might handle these changes and discusses how virtual spaces fit. We talked about the importance of the material being relevant to the learner and how relevance is important to getting permission to teach in a learner’s space. We particularly want to get opinions on these issues so please take time to capture your thoughts and comments on the Buttons Comment Board at the website http://tinyurl.com/buttonscomment. Please visit there with you computer and listen to the episode again and contribute to help us build knowledge. Have your say, and connect with your colleagues ... be part of the wisdom! Regards Allan

    • electricchalk No probs, David. Go ahead. Chris
    • noble1885 Hi 'electricchalk' I just want to thank you for posting such great audio online. This is an excellent example of using mobile tech. I would like to cross-post this recording on the EDUtalk website. EDUtalk is a creative commons education community resource that I set up with a colleague, John Johnston, last year to collect educational audio captured using mobile devices (see http://edutalk.cc/the-edutalk365-project). Around 400 educators (mostly in the UK) are following the daily audio posts at EDUtalk.cc. Please let me know if you are OK with this and I will post your recording on the site some time this week. Alternatively, if you add the tag 'edutalk', the site will pick it up almost immediately. Keep up the great work! David Noble Chartered Teacher and EdD student, Fife
