7 things you should know

A few months ago I posted about Common Craft, where you can find short pithy videos about things you might be wondering about...or struggling to explain to others (rss, wikis, Twitter, etc.) Common Craft's style is - how shall I put it - lighthearted. For the bilious, who do not suffer breeziness gladly and perhaps prefer reading to watching, an excellent alternative is Educause's "7 Things You Should Know" series. Here is how they present themselves: 7 Things You Should Know About pieces provide quick, no-jargon overviews of emerging technologies and related practices that have demonstrated or may demonstrate positive learning impacts. Any time you need to explain a new learning technology or practice quickly and clearly, look for a 7 Things You Should Know About... brief from ELI. The briefs are professional looking 2 page pdfs, and make a very nice 1 sheet handout. Check it out! (and many other valuable resources at too!)
