I love Readability, esp for longer texts. Anything that strips away distraction is good for helping me tame my monkey mind.

The full schedule and details are available on the AACE website. Here's the description:
Social media and emerging technologies are gaining increased attention for use in education. The list of tools grows daily.
"Social Media: Trends and Implications for Learning" will explore the impact of new technologies, research, and related projects.
What does it all mean? Do long term trends and change cycles exist in the constant change? What patterns are emerging?
And, perhaps most importantly, should academics and education leaders respond?
"Social Media" will explore emerging technological and related research trends from a perspective of social and networked learning theory.
Finding coherence in the midst of rapid changes is increasingly difficult. This monthly session will create a forum for educators to gather, present, and discuss the future impact of today's trends.

We're trying something a little different with this seminar -- it will be in both English and Spanish! (I predict Babelfish and other translation services will be getting a few hits over the next 3 weeks!)
These are the cases presentations we have lined up so far, scheduled for Monday of each week via Elluminate. The first case is scheduled for Monday, July 6 at 10:00 a.m. PDT (your time zone). Check the SCoPE forum description for up-to-date times and locations of all live sessions.
- Paul Stacey and Andrew Marchand, The Learn Together Collaboratory (English)
- Diego Leal, Colombia Ministry of Education project (Spanish)
- Nick Lothian, Education Network Australia (English)
When does it make sense to have a network of communities? How do you go about supporting a network of communities? These are questions many of us are grappling with and we are finding there are many issues and challenges to consider! This 3-week seminar will be combined with weekly live "case study" sessions where we will hear from community leaders in higher education. Together we will explore the aspects and issues that can lead to a need for a network of communities based on these study cases and the practices of the participants. This is an initial exploration around this topic and we will identify new tasks, opportunities, and actions that emerge from the seminar.All SCoPE events are facilitated by volunteers in the community and are free and open to the public. Registration is not required and you are welcome to participate according to your own your time and interest. Latecomers, newcomers, and passersby are always welcomed. All discussions and presentations are archived for future reference.
Please spread the word!
