Teaching and Learning in a Net-Centric World

my trip to Dalarne, Sweden

I was pleased to get an invite from the University of Dalarne to do a keynote at their Next Generation Learning conference tomorrow. Besides not having been to Central Sweden, this is Parish from which my Great-grandparents immigrated from in the 1870’s to come first to Minnesota and then to Canada.

I couldn’t help thinking what would have happened if they hadn’t left as I toured the Dalarne Museum in Falun. This picture helped my visual it – but I hope my partner wouldn’t be so blank faced !!


I also enjoyed the way you can watch the NHL here. On Sunday, you get to watch about 20-25 minutes of the highlights of ecah game played on Hockey Night in Canada. Just right for an attention deficit type like myself. But after the way the Canucks thrashed the Oilers last night, I wish Sweden had of kept the Sedin brothers home here in Sweden.

    Nice comment Terry. Unfortunately I didn’t visit the NGL-conference personally but I took part via Twitter and listened to sessions and the panel session where you took part.
