I have a plan to take education out of the last century and into this one. Meanwhile, my daughter and I have designed and produced MathGirl Number Garden, an iphone/ipod touch app approved in the iTunes store on 7/7/10, launch date 7/1/10.
Hi Lynn, I just stumbled upon on interesting site which contained whitepapers that reminded my of your Icanology project. This site is the conference proceedings for the "Second International Workshop on Mashup Personal Learning Environments" which was held in Nice a month ago.
Many of the topics pertain to aggregating and condensing information and resources for students, to enable more customized learning.
Hi Lynn, you have some fascinating ideas. Your Icanology concept seems like it would fill a real education/motivation void for adolescents. I'm impressed by your insights, in a lot of ways they parallel where I see / would like to see social media go. No small task though, but would be an interesting project to see through.
I'm looking forward to see how Icanology develops - I've just subscribed to your various RSS feeds.
