The project will create a network between stakeholders in the education and work sectors that will examine how both should be using Web2.0 in the education and work environments.

Maybe you've seen this? Looks pretty cool. Like how it has the ability to record and also integrates with Lego.

Our Puppy Class (ages 18 months - 2 years) at our Levy Road location had fun this morning with some sensory exploration. Since we are working on our Space unit, they did some imagination play. They listened to the song, "Adventure in Space" as they used their imagination to pretend they were astronauts blasting off into outer-space. They ended up finding these four planets out there and explored what their surfaces were made of. They did a fabulous job working together and sharing their various scooping materials!!!!

What makes great minds different is the quality of their questions.  Let’s apply an example:
Leonardo da Vinci was an accomplished scientist and inventor.To think like da Vinci, you must appreciate how da Vinci learned. Find excellent examples here.

Hi, I'm Steve from the UK. I designed Memneon (see link). It's free and I'm really interested to see if playing it (check the Multiplayer mode too) helps with memory. You input dots into a grid to complete brain 'circuits'. And there are three challenging levels. Use the Hint button in Single Player > Practice mode if you need help. Looking forward to getting your feedback :)

How do you generate an idea that is so radical … ” so compelling …“ that it fundamentally alters customer expectations, or reinvents the cost structure in your industry, or redefines the basis for competition?
