Conversation Description:

Many to Many-- How Entire School Communities Can Collaborate Hosted by Jim Heynderickx Affiliation: Director of Technology, American School in London

Clay Shirky has published and presented on several interesting concepts about how the Internet can enable "many to many" communications and support. He has also noted that technology tools become socially interesting when they become technologically boring. The main idea of this conversation is to discover if his ideas are becoming apparent in our schools, and specific ways that we could foster their growth. In this context, we will also review the problems with type of change, and how some long-term beliefs and structures may need to be reviewed.
