"Hi Connie, Thanks for your note. Nice idea to post a discussion question related to our research. As we embark on a new portion of our study, one big question we have is how (if at all) do you young people define their online social networking,…"

"Forgot to mention, how about hooking us up to your recent curriculum developments? You could post a forum, or I could, if you'd rather. In any case, the work you're doing needs to be shared!"

Hi Carrie,
I like your ideas about questions for Firesiders. If you get a chance, maybe you could start a forum--I'm sure people would enjoy a question from you.
Just wanted to let you know I'm reading Lanier's book. Did you see my post on FB about it? It's a really weird book, hard to understand, but full of interesting things to discuss. I may start a conversation about it on Fireside soon, but I have to read more.
Hope you are doing well.
This year will be a very cool year for me--have some fantastic curriculum set up and ready to go. I'll be blogging about it.
Are you going to Washington for the PZ seminar in November?

Hi Carrie,
Let's activate a talk about GoodPlay--what do you say? Sure would like to have news of your work spreading...
Maybe you or one of your colleagues could start a discussion question for educators, something you'd like to know that might help with research ideas/topics under consideration.
Links to your research and website would be great to have in the forum.
(Or it could be a blog, whatever you think.)
Just a gentle nudge saying I believe in you and your work, want to get news of your studies spreading around!
Hope your end-of-summer is going well. Here, a big garden harvest is underway, from now through first frost. Had a great time after FoL in northern Michigan, now coming back to Future of Learning evaluations and reflections, then, oh no! not already! planning for a new school year. (But I'm really excited about this new school year, have to talk with you about it...)
Take care. It was good to see you a bit in Cambridge.

Hi Carrie,
It was so great to see you in Cambridge. Thanks for the great mini-courses at Project Zero and Future of Learning. You are contributing so much to the world of education. Your research is nothing less than VITAL to our understanding today of what's going on with the digital revolution. My hat's off to you.
Please, when you get a chance, jump in on some of the discussions here. Share your voice, your views, and some of what you're learning about young people today, ok?
And take good care of yourself, with that growing being inside of you. (How wonderful you look! You're positively beaming.)
Whew... What a learning-extravaganza the Institutes were. And you added so much to the mix!

Carrie...I think Or-Tal will be attending the talk Howard Gardner is giving on April 15th at the Kingsley Montessori School. She is from Israel and will be visiting with her daughter. I teach high school in North Conway. I will be there with three students. If you can attend, let us know. It's a nice opportunity to meet folks from Fireside in person.

Thanks for the comment, Carrie--I agree with you about wanting time to grow on trees!

Glad the topics are of interest... Would like to hear what you're discovering and thinking about. I think of you as being on the absolute cutting edge of what we need to know for 21st century learning. Or, the crest of the tidal wave. Oddly, though, most educators have no idea that the wave is even coming. So we need to talk about it.

Hi Carrie,
Thanks for your recent note about possible networks for student use. Really appreciate it.
Hey, would you consider starting a forum now and then on this grassroots community network? Sure would appreciate your input, your participation. I know you're busy with a huge amount of research... Just know how much we'd love to hear from you.

Hi Carrie,

So glad to see you here! There are a million things we should talk about. Your work is so essential to our times, for the future of learning... Keep it up! Go forth! You are a forerunner for our times. I think your research will make huge differences for the betterment of the world. The world of learning. Lead on, Pioneer!

Please share your studies as much as possible... We'll all benefit.

Let me know how this network can best support your endeavors. Any nings you want this hooked up to? Other sites?

Hi, Carrie, good to see all of you from Harvard joining in here.

Whenever I think of MIT and new media, I recall the long ago paper on the implications of infinite bandwidth. As it came when a 9.6kbps modem cost $150, the idea seemed so absurd. Yet here we are--nearly there.

Hope you find stuff of interest here. And find our campfire a little bit fun!
