Removing Bricks from The Wall

At the end of my teaching stint at Acadia, I wrote a short piece for the alumni magazine called "Profs in a Wired World", in which I noted that '[t]echnology can remove walls from the classroom … not just for students, but for faculty as well.'

A Wired article on blogging in France finds the same thing:

"We discovered blogs in the U.S. in 2001 and wanted to adapt this formidable means of expression for our rising generation," said Skyrock CEO Pierre Bellanger. "The classroom was formerly a closed place but, with mobile phones, it becomes a recordable, open place. The adults do not like it and are lost there."
