Wikinomics: Let your Students Talk to Don Tapscott

One of my favorite new books is Wikinomics by Don Tapscott. It is an incredible book that is “right on the money” as we say here in the south.

Mass Collaboration has changed everything… it has transformed my classroom and made such projects as Flat Classroom and Horizon Projects possible.

There is a great opportunity out there for you courtesy of Taking IT Global:

“Don Tapscott, the author of the best-selling book Wikinomics, is inviting TakingITGlobal members to share their views on a range of issues as part of research for his upcoming new book! Over the next few weeks, your students are invited to express their thoughts and experiences related to learning and education on a Featured Discussion Forum, and may even get a chance to be quoted in the book itself! Students can join the conversation directly here: http://en.discuss.takingitglobal.org/6909

Taking IT global is an incredible organization and I highly recommend it.

Join in and give students a voice. Show that mass collaboration does change everything. This is very important.
