Here is just a bit more information i shared to advertise Mike's hot seat:
This month Mike Sharples will kick off our new Networked Learning Hot Seat series. On October 25th Mike will lead us into a conversation on “Massive Open Social Learning”. This Hot Seat will be active for a week. Be sure to take part and make this a lively (massive) social learning event. The Hot Seats are free and open to whoever is interested.
Mike Sharples’ research involves human-centred design of new technologies and environments for learning. It involves gaining a deep understanding of how people work, play, learn and interact as a foundation for the design of novel socio-technical systems (people in interaction with technology).
