This week, Lisa and Maria responding to a topic posted in Plurk by Beth Knittle - the purpose of education. Beth also posted a blog entry as well. Another blog post worth reading is from David Warlick, writtern in Jan. 2009. As always, we had a good conversation in the stream and the chat room.
This week, our Conversation centered around a tweet conversation between @intrepidteacher and @courosa about online safety and trust. This article started it all. We moved into trust among educators, with parents, students, and each other. Feel free to continue the chat at our blogsite.
