Hi. My goal in running this weblog is to provide information about the growing field of learning sciences, which unites researchers from cognitive science, education, computer science, and other fields. A central goal for the field is to learn about learning, and to explore ways to leverage various resources, including technology, to better support teaching and learning.
I write from the perspective of a trained learning science researcher (bio here) who now focuses on the design and development of innovative learning technology. The company I co-founded, Inquirium, collaborates with academic researchers and educational organizations to design learning environments for a variety of learning contexts.
I typically update this blog once or twice a week with news and notes that I come across during that time. I'm not trying to provide a daily update, just a semi-permanent record of news and notes, as much for myself as anyone else who finds it useful.

I'm currently using Blosxom to drive the blog. For 2002 and the first three months of 2003, I used Radio. Much of the current visual layout was stolen (not to put too fine a point on it) from Exposition Kink.
