I stumbled across this interesting blog post with some timely reminders for how to help learners avoid misunderstandings and develop a little healthy humility and skepticism. Classes start for me tomorrow. Wish me luck.
A friend just sent me a link to this company in Tokushima. This is what I want to do when I grow up . . .
Free e-book with short profiles of people working in instructional design.
This looks like a really interesting documentary about the traditional way of making SAKE. I looked around, but haven’t figured out how to order it.
Congrats to Mike Post for publishing issue 8 of Beer Zen. Great stuff!
A big THANKS to Donna Tatsuki for sharing this link to a blog entry from the NY Times about research on the psychological benefits of writing and editing our own stories.
A big thank you to Jason Hill for writing up a review of my talk at Iwate JALT. I enjoyed meeting with teachers in Akita and Iwate, and look forward to future trips.
I came across this documentary about Aaron Swartz when I was looking for examples to show my documentary filmmaking students. I remember reading/hearing about Aaron and his various social causes, but did not realise that he committed suicide due to the pressures of being indicted by the government. I hope more people are touched by his story and get involved.
