Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v5 n1 Oct-Nov 2008
Alan McCord, Denise Easton, and James Shimabukuro discuss "Innovate-Ideagora", a new social and professional networking site designed to enhance professional communication in the "Innovate" community. The site will both increase and elevate discussion among "Innovate" readers, providing a forum in which collaboration and complex problem solving can occur on an unprecedented scale, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Current discussion on "Innovate-Ideagora" include a complex, dynamic debate about the sources of and remedies for resistance to change in education, as well as conversations about the cultural resistance to educational technology in the Middle East, the effect of technology on learning-disabled students, and the challenges of acquiring and integrating technology in low-income school districts.
