An article for OhmyNews was accepted and has had more response than most of my other articles.I think this is a good way forward. Journalism seems to work better than academic writing.

I got over some ideas about quality and how learning could fit in with this. Since writing the article I have found some more about a theory of learning Google might connect with. They are supporting the project for cheap computers promoted by the Media Lab at MIT.

Negroponte explained “This is not teaching as we know it; only part of our learning comes from teaching. Much of it comes from curiosity. These are tools that can help cultivate that learning process.”
