Welcome to part 3 of this 6 part series with Alan November and Richard Halkett. Richard is the Director of Strategy, Research, and Global Education for Cisco Systems. In the podcast, Richard discusses the power of informal learning and how schools need to harness that learning. Students spend more time learning outside of the classroom than with in the classroom. Students are collaborating on Facebook and other social networking sites outside the classroom and engaging in collaborative discussion. Educators now need to determine how schools can use collaborative tools in the classroom to foster peer-to-peer learning.
Special thanks to Richard Halkett and Cisco Systems for their help in making this podcast series possible.
