Working on an upcoming article for Edutopia I’ve learned some of the latest going on in the world of e-learning (aka distance education). For example, there’s a great international project called The Flat Classroom Project, which takes the ideas of Thomas Friedman’s World Is Flat -- appropriately enough -- asks teams of students from around the world to investigate them. As for the technology itself, podcasts and wikis are pretty much old hat for this crew. They’re on to things likenings, FlashMeeting, and iEARN.
