NSF, SRI and the National Geographic , How powerful was that!! There was a reference to a cyber conference from the National Geographic on the web.. I jumped at the chance to try to be there... . If you have ever had professional development from the National Geographic you would jump at the chance....the resources for teachers are so many. Their training is outstanding and it is inclusive learning. So with NSF and SRI and National Geographic I knew the offerings would be outstanding. You can still participate in the portal to help build knowledge. We have in this group shared a lot of things, but the powerful technology examples shown at the Cyberlearning Conference are beyond our discussions. They invite you to be a part of the discussion in this way. We invite you to help write pages for the cyberlearning topic areas listed below. Our aim is to develop definitions that are strong enough to show the direction of the field but open enough to allow for innovation (see Defining Cyberlearning, below). If you have expertise in any of these areas and would like to be involved in editing these pages, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a wiki account. http://cyberlearning.sri.com/w/index.php/Cyberlearning:Community_portal Topics AI applications in education Augmented Reality Computational Thinking Data Acquisition and Sensors Deeply Digital Texts Distributed Sensing Educational Data Mining Full-body and Intelligent Interfaces Games and Virtual Worlds Large-scale Interactive Media Mobile Learning Peer Production Programmable Learning Environments Simulations Smart Representations Social Media Tangible Interfaces Technology Enabled Formative Assessment Virtual Communities for Learning Visualization Cyber Workforce Development Task Force Report The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) project is also defining key TEL topics Here is my write up of the conference. http://thepowerofus.org/2012/01/19/transformational-learning-in-a-cyberl... The resources will be shared. There is a portal that we can use to help unite the researchers and scholars with those of us who teach. What a powerful example of transformational learning . Here's to the creators of the conference. You should join the thought parade. Thanks to all who created an inspirational day. Hopefully some of these ideas will be made a part of the national conversation on the use of technology. Bonnie Bracey Sutton
