Welcome

Hi everyone.  As a result of numerous discussions and expressions of interest in the topic of brain research and technologically mediated learning, I have set up this groupsite to begin, and extend the dialogue that I had with each of you.  I make no pretense that I am some expert on the subject, and those who saw my presentation would probably agree that it posed more questions than gave answers.  What I am confident in, however, is that if we can connect the various people from Education, Medicine, Technology, Business, etc who are vested in developing a deep understanding of the biological basis for learning especially as it applies to learning through or with technology, we can begin to refine the questions we pose and start to generate some answers.  I will do my best for the next month or so to get the conversation going, including scheduling one or two WebEx conferences, posting things that I find interesting, creating links to sites with what I consider useful information and highlighting some research opportunities.  However, it will be a thin effort without the active participation of YOU.  Welcome aboard.

    Thanks, Rick. My main 'lead' is http://www.wiley.com/bw/journal.asp?ref=1751-2271. And perhaps we should attend http://www.imbes.org/conference2009/conf09.html. I'm hoping I could.

    Thanks Judith, I have posted this conference in the Calendar. Sounds like a very interesting conference. Has anyone been to the first one?

    Rick, I wish I could go to that conference, but I will not be able to get another conference funded this year. Will you be going by any chance?

    Yeah, I did see the links. Ta. I have not been to the first one. Reading 'The Educated Brain' (well trying is the operative word) by the MBE people (Battro, Fischer and Lena).

    I thought that AERA this year has some good keynote speakers. For instance, the presidential sessions include one cluster on "explorations of brain" (http://aera.net/uploadedFiles/Publications/Journals/Educational_Researcher/3802/146-147_03EDR09.pdf), which sound very interesting. Please check them out.
