I arrived home yesterday after an amazing week in the Bay Area. While the initial impetus was to attend a couple of startup pitch and demo events, I made the trip very ed-tech focused with visit with Rafael Corrales, co-founder of LearnBoost and a morning spent at the Googleplex, meeting the executives involved with some of Google's various educational programs. I also heard Elon Musk speak - not at an ed-tech event, mind you - a strong reminder of the importance of a imagination and a solid scientific education.

That being said, I'm far behind on reading my RSS feeds and on writing in my own blogs, and while I plan to follow up with a ton of stories in the coming days about back-to-school-with-education-technology, here are some of the things other folks over have written over the past few days that have caught my eye:

Dan Meyer, "WCYDWT: Boat In The River"

David Wiley, "Openness as Catalyst for an Educational Reformation"

Wes Fryer, "Jessi Slaughter on YouTube: A Case Study on Digital Citizenship"

Scott McLeod, "A glaring absence of technology: Policy statements from national school administrator and teacher associations"

Brian Lamb and Jim Groom, "Never Mind the Edupunks; or, The Great Web 2.0 Swindle"
