Konichiwa EdLab folks,
I thought you'd be interested in an Op-Ed piece of mine that was recently published in my university's journal. I'm fighting for a campus-wide open Wi-Fi network. Open Wi-Fi is rare in Japan, even at universities. I would not have been able to write this if not for my experience at the EdLab.
The final episode of School ReDesign is premiering this Friday shortly after 4 p.m., and I'd like to invite you guys to its premiere at EdLounge, on the second floor of the Teachers College Library. Find out who wins this competition of School ReDesign!

Check out this quick video test, created with the super easy to use Flip Camera and the iTalk, a microphone attachment for the iPod. The first 17 seconds were captured with the Flip mic, and the rest with the iPod mic. Pretty cool inexpensive media tools!
This weekend, After Ed is sending a crew down to the AEP Summit to capture the Great American Education Forum where reps from both campaigns will be discussing educational policy. They will be fielding questions from a panel of publishing industry experts, and even a few questions from the audience. If After Ed was lucky enough to squeeze one question during the Q/A what would you ask?

What role can our library play out in an international, interconnected, constantly wired world? More specifically, how do we plan on extending services to TC students abroad? How can our library have more of a global reach - in line with the college's mission to expand programs abroad?
