This is fascinating! "We’re creating online spaces that make people feel more comfortable, and potentially even helping them to navigate social environments they previously feared." Online gaming is helping shy individuals find OFFline friends and sometimes even improving cognitive abilities!Do you game? I'm not into it much personally but dabble so I know what's going on in the world :0) Can you tell me what I should be playing or doing to catch this bug? (or what to avoid!)

Interesting data on the use of tablets in Higher Ed. Interesting that students see these tools as revolutionary - more so than laptops! Definitely worth a read.What is your experience of technology in higher ed? Can you see tablets replacing or substituting some of your experiences? Share your thoughts below ;0)

 Reading is not dead! Long live the library! This article compares the reading and library use habits of 16 - 29 year olds with 30+ year olds. Great to the reading and self-directed learning that students undertake these days acknowledged in data!

This is a really challenging article that gives 8 ways that education will change - and is already beginning to change.The idea that teachers' roles must change is imperative - we no longer have the luxury of a four year degree and thats it, with maybe a day of PD here and then. It's a brave new world people! How exciting!

This interesting - using stories to get your message or information across. This could be great for primary and secondary schools using online platforms like Google Apps for Edu or Edmodo - frame your unit of study around a story to engage and clarify your purpose.Great tips on how to get started in this article.Do you enjoy storytelling? I love it - particularly in maths! Makes fractions so much more fun if theres' a 'real' event/story they have to fix or solve!
