Activities

Here are a few questions for you to think about … feel free to blog, tweet, discuss and ask more questions as the week progresses.

What
do you think?  Does transliteracy transcend the digital divide?  does
it describe some of the thrust of open source thinking?  of open source
learning?  of education?  What media, tools and delivery platforms do
you use, and how long do they stick around and why?   Which have you
already discarded and why?
