Always excited and anxious at the beginning of a new semester. Enjoyed meeting students yesterday in Literacy Studies and Academic Writing, and turning to research in the Scientific Inquiry course.  Living the dream…

Here are some resources I’m finding particularly interesting as we begin the new semester:

Mark Sample’s Introduction to Digital Studies course site

Howard Rheingold’s resource on building open source learning platforms

James Gee on games, learning and literacy

Buffy Hamilton’s blog post on Literacies & Fallacies

Robert Full’s TED talk Learning From the Gecko’s Tail 

John McWhorter’s TED talk Txtng is Killing Language. JK!!!
