This started as a discussion on the NMC Directors listserv-- see below. As we start implementing the new NMC web site, we are exploring tools like LibraryThing that can do much more for collaboration that a pile of emails.

I'm working on a subcommittee preparing for university accreditation and trying to think about what's on and even over the horizon in regard to technology and pedagogy. What do you think I should read? Are there a coupla books or articles or reports that jump into mind that you could share? Like, right now I happen to be looking at Oblinger and Oblinger's Educating the Net Generation (Educause 2005). Are there recent works like that or even older classics that you'd recommend to help us look into, plan for, and perhaps even facilitate the future of technology-enhanced learning? I'm doing some "break" reading and would appreciate any suggestions.

Cogdog, I haven't used Librarything before. Is there a way to let people know that How People Learn is online at the NAP website? http://www.nap.edu/html/howpeople1/

I would point them to the 2000 edition http://www.nap.edu/books/0309070368/html/

You can add this as a note/review to the book information. Go to the listing in your own library, and click the pencil icon for editing-- I just did this, and my comments with a URL appear now on the book listing:

Cogdog if you enclose a book title in square brackets it will form a link to that book's page automatically. there is an example to the right of the editing field.

Yes, I used it before, but plum forgot. LibraryThing does this so elegantly....

And authors as well, like McLuhan or Steven Johnson --cool!
