A wonderful example of using technology in a meaningful way to shorten the distance in learning and sharing in the moment. ping +Lauren Sayer

As a result of our last raucous event, the owner of Lot 347 has gotten in touch to offer Beer Pedagogy a 'Lot 347 Beer Ed session' with the Little Creatures team on Thu 20 March - the plan would be a 6-8pm dialogue with a craft specialist. Sounds good. Any takers?

Great scary stuff. If turning lights out gives you shivers, I wouldn't recommend watching this. Good example of how to create punchy tension in a short amount of time. via +James Dominguez

Be warned: this is powerful stuff. Very well made. Amazing how much emotion can be generated in 1:30mins. Here's the original article: http://www.policymic.com/articles/84397/haunting-video-shows-what-syria-s-civil-war-would-look-like-in-the-west via +Leena van Deventer

After almost 24 years in television, plus a movie, I can't see how Homer couldn't be invited! ;-)

What if the best learning happens in the least time? What if we started saying to teachers: "I want you to learn something that doesn’t feel like learning." This is a mindset shift, tools are irrelevant.
