Connecting Networks

George Siemens posted this introduction of Tutor/Mentor Connection on the eLearnSpace blog. I've received email newsletters from George for many years, and many of my ideas on innovation, learning and visualization have come from people he writes about.

I posted a note on George's blog encouraging people in colleges and high schools to spend time learning about T/MC, as part of service learning, and/or as a research project. Here's an article I wrote showing how that learning might lead to growing understanding and organizational involvement.

As more people take ownership of these ideas we create a decentralized network of leaders all working to help mentor-rich programs connect with youth in high poverty neighborhoods. That's what is needed.
