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.
Interesting blog post about asking negative questions.
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.
Sent to me by Aeric Wong. We may be using some of this stuff in our study skills course for first year students.
We are keeping our eyes on this to see what changes this will actually bring.
