So I made a couple wrong turns on the way from hotel in San Jose to the Microsoft campus in Silicon Valley on my way to the event (my bad), so arrived late for Prof. Darling-Hammond’s opening talk.  What I heard was on the mark and thoughtful.  Good thing a colleague taped it!

Here’s a PhotoSynth of the event to get a sense for where we are.

If you haven’t used the Photosynth tool yet from Microsoft R&D and the University of Washington. Check it out.  Easy way to stitch pictures together in a fun way.  Imagine using in a geography assignment or as a reflection tool following a field trip or even summer vacation.

Regards,

Rob
