Well, it’s been a few days since I began this process of explaining an idea of how a higher ed learning environment might look if it allowed itself to be influenced by the latest in technological hardware and facilitatory web tools (Web 2.0). I have been somewhat stuck, not that I don’t have my ideas sketched out in a comp book, complete with mind maps and diagrams galore . . . but I have been struggling to organize them into smaller bits that will translate nicely to the blog environment.
I may have built too big a picture for myself and now after the research and the attempt to organize the ideas I have left myself something that needs to be carved up and can’t seem to pull that off . . .
My character, Andrew, has a backpack that contains the following items as he heads off to classes each day: iPod Touch, cell phone, Kindle or Sony bookreader, laptop. I think I am going to organize the ideas around his backpack, so the next post will deal with the iPod, podcasts, and webcasts.
