TLT Group TGIF 9.27.2011                

From TLT Group World Headquarters In a few weeks, we'll be highlighting the concept of Counterimplementation in a FridayLive! on Oct 14.  If you're unfamiliar with the concept, please take the time to read Steve's blog post this week about it, "We can only hope for incremental change...", as well as the full article "Information Systems and Organizational Change" by Peter G.W. Keen, May 1980.  I think you'll find it as fascinating and useful as we have. It's great background for any of our sessions that pertain specifically to new technologies and change - like this week's FridayLive! on eTextbooks.  Join us!

Steve seeks your opinion, experience, interest, and ideas. The TLT-SWG Blog is the perfect place to weigh in! 

UNISA, "pioneer of higher distance education in western world"
"Protect My Tweets" - Useful in courses? Examples?
BYOD - "outsource your IT department to Apple"
"Whatever you're doing now is wrong? - vis a vis centralize/decentralize tech support
CC Search - helpful way to find legally useable images

More always on the way...

TLT Group's Fundamental Questions Activity
Information technology can be the excuse and the means to make almost any kinds of change in education and elsewhere.  As you think about the kinds of change that might happen, try to answer each of these Fundamental Questions for your students, your colleagues, your institution, and yourself:

What do you most want to gain?  What do you most cherish and want not to lose?

These two simple, powerful questions are the heart of the TLT Group's Fundamental Questions activities.   Participants identify their most important shared goals and commitments as well as significant differences in their hopes and fears.

Members can access complete Fundamental Questions activity in our vault of resources.
