  1. Warrick, I downloaded and listened to your podcast and enjoyed it very much. I appreciate the plug for my blog there also – ironically a few weeks back when you mentioned you were bound for the education.au conference, I thought that I should drop you a comment and say you’re welcome to come and check out what I’m doing. But I thought that’s a bit presumptous!! Actually been reading you for a while and I’ve commented before – it’s funny how the blogosphere works how people criss cross each other and then notice what the other is posting. That’s why I think the term “online community” is a bit erroneous – I like Leigh Blackall’s term Networked Learning to describe what is possible through blogging, wikis etc. I may have many nodes on my network and learn from many people who may not be even aware of my existence, and likewise. I’m always amazed when I find my blog in someone else’s blogroll (even in another language!) but if I tried to only read blogs that read me, then we’d get that echo-chamber effect. Anyway, I’m off to buy a graphic calculator – that’s obviously the future of education. But on a serious note, don’t dismiss the IWB movement yet – at least, not in primary schools where there is a real chance the use of the board for learning could be placed in the students’ hands. Cheers!

  2. Thanks for the feedback Graham; much appreciated. I haven’t totally dismissed the IWBs yet, just not convinced it’s much of a change from the teacher-centred classroom model. I shall keep listening!
