The choices almost feel endless from the old guard: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, Orkut, Myspace, to the new endeavors like Path. Or even to the “socialization” of services like [...]

Twitter just became 5 years old and many of us can remember the first time: we heard of twitter… the first time we experienced powerful collaboration on twitter… some of us can even remember our first tweet (not me, though I can imagine it was something like: “I just don’t understand this…” So, for many it feels like a shock when after 5 years, thousands of tweets, hours of growing and grooming our personal learning network we look at Google+ [...]

Before I launch into this post, let me first say that my Twitter profile (@jimohagan) operates as my personal and professional voice. My breaking point was reached well before the Sunday night Twitter explosion over the killing of mass murderer, Osama bin Laden. However, it was a little disturbing with the number of people who I follow for professional purposes trying to cater to the lowest common denominator and tweet that zinger joke that connected Obama, Osama, Trump, birth certificates, [...]

The last nineteen days have heralded historic change and news organizations around the world are either strongly or subtly crediting Wael Ghonim’s Facebook page as the coalescing and driving force that led to the resignation of Hosni Mumbarak Egypt’s President and Dictator for the last 30 years.

Questions to ponder? Can questions make someone’s point? Is it important to question? As an educator, what were your thoughts when you heard that Egypt shut down the Internet?

A Google employee creates a Facebook page, which incites an entire country to overthrow a ruthless dictator, and it all plays out live on the Internet for students everywhere to see. If you have a child in school, ask them if they know what happened today. If a teacher at your kid’s school did their job- if the school your child goes to did their job, [...]
