Once in a while you stumble upon a fantastic blog or website, rarely do you come across two in the one night.
The blog I refer to is tedblog.typepad.com/ in their own words: ‘The TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference is an annual event where leading thinkers and doers gather for inspiration. (More at TED.com) The TEDBlog covers the same ground, on a rather more frequent basis.’
In particular go to the right hand side for the video podcasts section, it is chock full of amazing people giving talks on all sorts of subjects. I have just watched the Richard Dawkins which you can view here:
Have a good look around the site it is truly amazing.
www.connexions.com – Again in their own words: Connexions is an environment for collaboratively developing, freely sharing, and rapidly publishing scholarly content on the Web. Our Content Commons contains educational materials for everyone — from children to college students to professionals — organized in small modules that are easily connected into larger courses. All content is free to use and reuse under the Creative Commons"attribution" license.
It is a great idea and one I believe which will change the face of education.
