Greetings from Anchorage, Alaska where I got up early to prepare for a full day of workshops tomorrow. I was about to leave for a day of sightseeing, but two Twitter tweets got my attention this morning. (I am continually amazed at how my network on this ephemeral tool feeds my brain!)

First Al Lupton shared Mashable’s compilation of cool ways to search Flickr. The 11 Craziest Ways to Browse Flickr which should have some cool classroom and perhaps, research application. Among the crazy ways: by drawing an image, by entering song lyrics, by color.

And more importantly, Sheryl Nussbaum Beach posted a brilliant essay that helps us define and share the potential for Learning 2.0. Definitely read it and consider how you might use it in discussion with your faculty in September. Also see my SLJ post on Sheryl’s core components.

Now, off to see Anchorage!

Monday update: Update: Just saw another of Sheryl’s not-to-be-missed posts: The Art of Building Virtual Communities.  Read it. Share it.
