Alec Couros is a higher educator for U of Regina. His presentation illustrates the way social medial has caused an explosion of knowledge and human sources for learning opportunity. Two good points: 1) Certain literacies are an important part of benefitting from such opportunity, and 2) How does a skilled educator facilitate such opportunity?

I have been away from the online world for a bit. Took a month away to see my mother and relatives in Minnesota.
It marked the first time in many years that I actually had some unstructured time.The occasion? I chose to re-direct, you know, the early boomer, second career choice. That said, I'm back :).
In my next work, I look forward to the opportunities to
- design learning environments for specific communities of users, ones which support learning success and incorporate appropriate 21st century tools and strategies
- define and apply quality evaluation models for projects and courses
- explore, communicate, and train others on new technologies that support learning
- contribute to global efforts in the positive outcomes made possible through educational communities
