I blogged a couple of days ago about a using Skype to connect a family that is split by cancer. Mom and 3 year old are 250 miles away in Oakland at Childrens’ Hospital – Dad and siblings are here in Reno. We just successfully made a connection so that now the family can see each other and converse to their hearts content. I know I bring this kind of connection up a lot – its not hard to do and it has so many positive implications for education – just way too cool. They put the headset on the “reluctant to speak” 3 year old and after much prodding I got her to wave and look at Mom and say hi and wave. Can you tell I’m totally psyched!?
Learning is messy!
Update – I’m adding this to this post to show someone new to blogging how a trackback works.
