What is a Learning Object?

What can I do with this “object”?

How can I re-use it?

How can I “recontextualize it”?

What is it exactly I can do with it?


Here is the big answer.


I can link to it.

Why Should I Care?



Yeah, but I'm a teacher ... why should I care?




Can I Really Do This?


K12 Online

Hi Darren


Teachers and staff developers have echoed this thought. I have learned more from other teachers workshop leaders and bloggers online during the last few years than I learned in graduate school. This is surely true for me. This network of teachers are incredible generous with their time, energy and ideas. The K12 online conference stands out as a watershed event. It was there then but continues to keep on giving. I use the podcasts and video presentations to demonstrate to my high school students , as well as my graduate students, how to use web 2.0 applications. They can see teachers experimenting with these tools and student work that demonstrate the effective use of technology. It also created a watering hole or if you wish a cafe for kindred spirits to meet and learn from each other.


I am sure my experience was not unique. My experience is licensed by Creative Commons and maybe used without my permission.
