The World of Educational Technology

Thursday, January 19, 2006


I have used Bloglines long time ago when my brother Alec first suggested it to me, but I have not revisited it for a long time. It is a great way to keep up to date on when your favourite blogs or sites are updated and a great way to organize them.

Pretty useful stuff.

Inspiration from my brother

My brother, Alec Couros, is a leader in Educational Technology, and I will have to admit, I learn a lot about technology from him (isn't that what Big Brothers are for). Just thought that I would recognize him in my blog, as he has recognized me in his blog several times as well.

Thanks for all of your help Alec!

Stephen Downes Workshop

My name is George Couros and I was
inspired by a session with Stephen Downes from the National Research Council, to create a new blog! I have seen him speak before in Regina, Saskatchewan and was inspired by his ideas for using the web to enhance technology. He has a very interesting website that has many valuable ideas for enhancing education through the use of technology. More to come in the near future!
