Thanks for the feedback:


I don't mean to bother you but I wanted to let you know that I've been sharing your page - http://www.rupert.id.au/EDST102/links.php - with some volunteers I work with at our local school district library. We're
finishing up some computer science resource guides for a new IT section in the library. We included your page in them which has excellent info and I'm confident will be very beneficial for the students who utilize them, thank you so much! I hope you don't mind.

I also wanted to suggest an additional resource for your page that I've found to be quite helpful:
"Computer Science Online: A Comprehensive Resource Guide" - http://www.online-college-reviews.com/resources/computer-science-online-a-comprehensive-resource-guide/ - It's a nice [guide] that covers many facets of computer science with in-depth information and resources. Let me know what you think, have a great day

Just wanted to give you a heads up that I've been sharing your page: (http://www.rupert.id.au/EDST102/links.php) with the faculty members of my Computer Science department. It's been greatly received- thank you. We're putting together a new curriculum so any quality information helps!

I thought I'd share a resource I think you'd like and can add to your page: (http://quickbase.intuit.com/articles/online-resource-guide-for-computer-science) It has a wealth of information and resources on computer/information science and its various components so I'm just passing it along. Let me know what you think and if you decide to use it! Thanks again

Bernie Dodge Transcript

Here’s the transcript from the Tapped In sesson with Bernie Dodge. The session was a follow-up to the one he did last week at NECC. At first, the discussion centered around WebQuests and Bernie pointed out that the real learning takes place away from the computer screen when kids argue with each other or explain their thoughts or teach each other what they read.
