wikinomics
grown up digital
how do we create meaningful work?- relevance/ creative/ passion
how to teach, not cover…constructionist theory
ideas in action: digiport, podcast, flash vid, screen capture, flip teaching, essential questioning

usually unanswerable….gives them reason to learn

whoever does most work learns most
controlled chaos
individualized…

legacy- world stage
focuses away from grades
wikispaces….
Key is imagery, hyperlinks, multimedia, polit cartoons, interactive ..start collaborate using skype/google docs
Book used as resorce thru the year; edited-as-we-go

Inspired new projects
