Harnessing the Metaverse, the Bebo Boomers and the Facebook generation

World_of_warcraft_the_new_golf Roo's been great at posting the audio and some visuals from last week's panel session where I moderated on how organisations could and should harness the 'Facebook generation'. He had quite possibly the best quote of the week: "World of Warcraft is the new golf", courtesy of Joi Ito.

You can see and hear Roo's excellent presentation on virtual worlds and how he and others have been using them at IBM, listen to my 20-minute rant on how we should harness the Bebo Boomers in our organisations instead of having them make the coffee and Mary Ellen gives a wonderful overview of the importance of playing instead of training (her slides are here). It's worth tuning in, too, to the panel Q&A that had been conducted both on Twitter, the blog and F2F.

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
