NextGen Teachers

I recently got an email telling me about this edtech site NextGen Teachers. It looks interesting, and has a podcast which I plan to subscribe to, when my procrast... ahem, grades are all done.

There's an interesting blog entry on a teacher's use of a wiki, which I plan to revisit and explore later. It includes a link to a wiki being used for a course on sports.

I also like his metaphor of successful students as "academic athletes".
