Explosive Upsurge

Trying to keep up with the discusssions just in the Scottish blogosphere is becoming a full-time job. There seems to have been a sudden surge in ideas, as though a damn has burst. Ewan McIntosh and John Johnston has been joined at least in my ken by a raft of other people including John Connell, Don Ledingham, Andrew Brown etc. Inverting the Core, Extreme Learning are also bringing together strands that have been floating around for a while. It’s a very exciting time in Scottish education and I hope that Glow will provide the infrastructure to make it all work.

I do fear that the Masterclass online community will need to run very fast if it going to remain a player.

  1. Hi Bob,
    What is exciting about the scot edu blog world is that it is open and driven from, at least in part, the grassroots.
    Masterclass is closed which makes it a different kind of space. I wonder if Glow will be able to open to the world in at least some of its aspects or will it compliment the web 2 community that has sprung up in the last wee while.
    i just noticed your ‘Blue Skies Education’ tag, got to love that:-)

  2. Thanks for the link Bob – and in such esteemed company! FYI though, my blog has now finally changed location to my own hosted site at whereisab.co.uk. I watch the discussion around Glow/online communities with great interest!

  3. Now is the time for all true believers to come to the flag of Blue Sky Education!!!

    Seriously I think that today is the most exciting time in Scottish Education for many years, with the ground swell of new thought and innovation from all corners. I just can’t wait for the bigger roller!
