Further to my “friends” post, this is a great example of remixing and relying on each other to construct ideas.
I had a somewhat frivilous post the other day on Weird Stuff. Didn’t think much of it and really couldn’t make much of an educational connection. A week later Steve Brooks over at edugadget spent some time with one of the “weird items” and remixed it and gave a very compelling idea for educational use.
None of us will have time to do everything but thankfully each of us have a little time to contribute and develop good ideas. This idea isn’t even done, I’m waiting to hear from someone who will now follow Steve’s idea and use it in the classroom.
