(via Anne via Kairos) This is a really cool three column concept that spurs all sorts of ideas. How about using it for articulation where individual schools can post and compare discipline specific learning objects or lesson plans? Or three different classes all doing side by side discussions of the same book? Or Social Studies classes basically replicating what WatchBlog is doing but on a more local level? Very cool.

And meanwhile Pam is busy making some of her best ideas come true using RSS to build a tool for individualized instruction. It’s a great concept…almost replaces the need for a class homepage when you think about it. Teachers could push content to individual student Web logs en masse or in small groups depending on the department. (And the New Frontier promises a way to file into multiple departments!)

BTW, has anyone upgraded to 9.1b4 yet? I’m waiting ’til most of the bugs are worked out…
