  1. This is a great example of what blended learning looks like in action!

    Thanks for the shout out Alex! I remember those days very well. In the information science courses I developed back then the students were working in collaborative web teams, conducting research, and exploring emerging resources such as blogs, wikis, and RSS aggregators. We used open resources for creating and editing web documents from W3C and addressed issues of accessibility in everything the students produced. This is key because learners were always producers and creators in those courses, inspiring each other as teachers and learners and definitely inspiring me. The courses always evolved with student feedback from one term to another. We were flipping before it was a theory and all of this work informed my thinking related to Metaliteracy (http://www.metaliteracy.org). We were trying to adapt to a rapidly changing information environment and learning to be informed participants in these spaces. And here we are years later connecting again, exchanging and sharing ideas in social spaces to make meaning. Flip or flop, not sure, but meaningful, dynamic, and always moving forward. -Tom
