New on my blog - "Hacking the Chromebook Part 3: ARC Welder meets Xiwi" (thanks to +David Schneider for all your hard work on Crouton!)

Hi folks, I'm Martin from Jisc in the UK. We run the Janet network and a bunch of shared services on top of it, and have been doing a lot of work with colleges and universities to help them exploit digital technologies.

I am particularly interested in what happens when the "iPad generation" (Nexus generation? ;-) reaches school leaving age per my selfie video. You can get a feel for where I am coming from by checking out these slides from a recent talk that I did at the UK's Future of Higher Education conference.

A couple of months ago my daughter came home from school with an interesting new project: everyone in her year group was being asked to imagine what the classroom of the future might be like.

My writeup of the moonshot summit...
If you could change anything in the education system, what would your ‘moonshot’ be? This was the question asked of 40 educators, edtech innovators and entrepreneurs from around the world who were invited to Google’s Moonshot for Education Summit in Amsterdam last week, which I was delighted to be able to attend representing Jisc.
