Curt, does this mean we will plan to begin this discussion on Thursday, 7/24? Until then, can you perhaps suggest how to approach your book based on how you envision discussing it here?

Glad the text just arrived from Amazon!

For those of us still waiting for it to cross the Atlantic I wonder of you could possibly send us a chapter or something that might relate to the discussion that might make up the start of these sessions? Have a lovely time in Boulder - send us some of the sun please smile
Best wishes E.A. (In UK)

Hi Ke and others,
Thanks for the jump start and the links. I have the book already and have just started getting into it. I am familiar with many of the concepts -- various styles of learning, but so far I am looking forward to how you are putting your ideas together and more.

Thanks Jo Ann Hammond-Meiers

Ditto to what Jo Ann was saying and I am looking forward to see how we can apply many of the teaching activities undertaken to Web 2.0 type applications. Thank you so much for al the links as well.
Best wishes E.A.
