How Do You Learn?

Amazing research is being done about how our brains work. We can now map brain activity and simulate processes, and yet there is still so much we don't know about how the chemicals and nerves create those incredible ideas, images, feeling, and memories.

xPlanazine doesn't seem to be keeping the blog up with the daily frequency they once were. Oh well, neither do I.

Here are some new favorite links to ed sites I try to check regularly.

Stephen Downes website http://www.downes.ca/news/OLDaily.htm

Oh, he's got such a list, I'll have to investigate and get back later.

My favorite new education blog. I wanna podcast so bad, and these guys and gals convince me that it's not only possible, it can be envigorating to converse at the edges of today's information tech spheres.

I'm subjected to this all day by my son, but I have to admit about half the time I enjoy it.

And for just the facts -- a domain name I like, www.n4m.com
