Playing with Technology

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. ~Arthur C. Clarke

The end

SSUG wrapped up at noon today. It was a very interesting couple of days. Bryan is always excellent and always has a ton of cool things to explore. I’ll be working with Mark and others to identify possible projects for making Moodle fit better with Liberal Arts institutions. I’ve taken a look at some of the projects currently going for blocks and modules in Moodle and am really excited by the possibilities.

Now it is time to get ready for the combinatorics class I am teaching. This time I am starting off with graph theory and and will use my friends graph in Facebook as a jumping off point for the discussion about graphs and social networks. I am also going to have students who work in groups use to tag resources. I may also ask some one to look at tag clouds in terms of graph theory as a project for the course. So many interesting ideas.
