Josiah goes to Brookfield, CT to learn about Digital Learning Environments from Sydnye Cohen and Jennifer Rocca. The pair discuss Brookfield High School’s multi-year 1:1 initiative and also share a great app called Subtext. Rob and Josiah wrap up the show with speculation about how DIY informal learning might (hopefully) influence old school institutions like the science journal Nature.
In this episode we have not 1, not 2 but 5 Appetizers that deal with screencasting on the iPad. Rob and Josiah look at the informal and formal ways online learning can occur. We wrap up with Rob responding to a listener’s question about the potential impact of “transmedia” on education.
