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.
