drinking from a flowing river

Welcome to the NEMEN Technology Leaders project blog. We launched our project today with a tremendously full day of learning. We're barely out of the chute and the group (you!) has already shown impressively-extensive prior knowledge, a wealth and diversity of teaching and learning experiences, and an enthusiasm for the possibilities of teaching with technology tempered by a healthy, student-focused, pragmatic skepticism about its limitations and appropriate uses. That's a rich mix.

"He who learns from one who is learning, drinks from a flowing river."

This proverb picked up in passing from Wes Fryer speaks to the kinds of connected and networked learning we'll be exploring in coming days through our own blogs, learning with and from each other and beyond to colleagues we haven't yet met.

We've only just gotten our feet wet.
