Where we are; where we're headed...This site started as a space to compile and consider research the effective use of technology in learning, and to look at relative benefits of digital and tactile (analog) approaches for different areas of learning. In the months ahead, the plan is to add real world examples of putting that research into practical action.
What Is...Learning on Mars is a site dedicated to exploring the dynamics of effective learning in a world where the tactile and the digital increasingly intersect. A world that ideally look less like "The Matrix" and a little bit more like Jules Verne and Beatrix Potter with iPads.
The evolution of Learning on Mars is a very long story, and a growing one; eventually it will fill this website. But for the moment this might help a bit...
Under Construction...Put on your hardhat and mind the scaffolding... This site is in live-build, and is likely to continue in that mode for quite awhile. Just like learning, it’s a work in progress.
Make yourself at home, wander around, make suggestions, even pull out a hammer and join in, if you’re so inclined.
