We invite you to join an open-ended conversation, beginning with +monika hardy: What has she been reading, talking about, and texting recently? And how is she continuing to work toward her vision of an unschooled, community-based, authentic (be you/be us) world?

+Karen Fasimpaur+Chris Sloan, +Al Elliott, and I will follow Monika's lead, looking to develop her comments by looking at  http://redefineschool.com/ together.

Please join us at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific on Wednesday, March 18, 2014.
