The great part about Clark's post is his reaction to the creation tools, and capabilities...
"I saw something I hadn’t really thought about. Most of it was the standard “places to meet”, events, and some nooks and crannies to explore, but…I've discovered that THIS, the creation piece, is what turns the light on for many of my colleagues. Its the user-generated content capabilities that takes us from a fun place to hang out and chat, to a Learning Platform for serious constructivist activities.
…that’s not what interested me. What’s interesting is that it is easy (apparently, I didn’t master it in my exploration) to create new things. So you can make models or representations and share them. THIS is a major benefit. Now we can share 3D representations and discuss them."
I will be leading a session at Devlearn2006 in Oct to help everyone make that leap. It's truly amazing, and I'm looking forward to it.
