Chris Jobling tells me that Martin Weller is the Ed Techie and that he'll be at the Wednesday Ellumination. Have I got that right, Chris?
Martin is writing a book based on compilations of student courses similar to PLENK2010. I want to tell him that this is exactly what Dr. Spock did to write his baby books. He asked the mothers of his pediatric patients how they handled so many common baby issues, and then he wrote a book about what they had told him.
I am all in favour of asking the students how they learn best, and asking front-line workers how to improve the workplace or the service. They deal with it every day. They know what it's like to do the job.
