First, I should have acknowledged Ewan's quote:
It's not about the tech; it's about the teachI really like this quote. (Is it a McIntosh original?) I've often said that you can give a duff teacher the best technology available and they'll still be a duff teacher. Similarly, you can take an outstanding teacher and put them in a wooden hut in the middle of nowhere and they'll still do a better job teaching than the duff one with all the technology! However Ewan's quote says it more concisely and with some humour. This is sad I know, but I was pleased with the way I animated it in the presentation. You know how when you are up against a deadline, you can get distracted and spend a silly amount of time on something that is relatively trivial... well I spent a silly amount of time animating that quote!
The second thing I wanted to say is related to Lessig style presentations. I said in a previous post that I don't think I quite got the hang of this style. I also said that I felt they really need an audio commentary to be of use. Well I came across this entry on Lessig's blog where he talks about how he adds audio and various people have left comments giving further ideas.
Now I need to do a bit more marking before getting back to the wiki post...
