Last week I had a bit of a rant on archaic practices that Teacher Education providers insist on perpetuating. The post generated some comment both on the blog and over twitter but I was totally amazed when I fired up tweetdeck this morning to see this mention:
My blog and UNESCO mentioned in the same tweet. How cool is that? Ok said account is actually a chair at a University sponsored by UNESCO to support elearning (so there was an element of preaching to the choir). Nevertheless I will bask in the awesomeness that a) a bunch of people shared something I wrote and b) the post was worthy enough of a mention by someone with UNESCO in their job title. 🙂
We are glad that you feel so honored after noticing our retweet 🙂
In fact, we enjoy sharing the small pieces of knowledge we find around the web. It doesn’t mather if the content we find comes from a world-wide-known guru or not; if we find something interesting, it deserves a RT 😉

Thanks for stopping by. Your comment has me thinking about how the internet and social media has the potential to truly democratize education.
