Just some reflections on the journey of augmented reality and the hololens launched by Microsoft, a nifty holographic tool enabling the virtual to become part of the real world.

The official launch of the Really Useful #Edtechbook is now a reality. The wonderful +David Hopkins edited and co-authored the book, together with 16 educational technologists/pedagogues. It has resulted in a fabulous book, filled with personal stories and educational tech knowledge.

+Ignatia/Inge de Waard As a writing teacher, I worry about this A LOT. It is a huge issue in the future of teaching writing and also writing assessment. I see nothing but bad here... Did you see +Phil Hill 's post on automation? Very related issue:

Are we at the brink of moving from a human-biological towards a computational-digital evolution? And if so, how can education support this shift?

I'm always glad to see evolution taking place with intelligent design, maintenance, and manufacturing.

Story
Tagline
passionate about technology enhanced learning. Started out with eLearning, than going into mLearning and now realizing that ubiquitous learning ... will bring all differentiated technology enhanced learning back to the term learning. I currently work at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Belgium and I am starting my exploratory thesis work for a M. Ed, in Distance Education at Athabasca University in Canada. My main interests are innovative learning methods (MOOC's, socio-constructivist learning), lifelong learning, social media for learning, network for knowledge... well anything that involves learning and connecting to improve knowledge (while using technology).
Introduction
My main interest is learning through and with technologies, focusing on the learning affordances of these technologies.

If you want to see what I am working on (or thinking about) in terms of TELearning, lookie here:
