TCC 2007 12th Annual TCC Worldwide Online Conference PDK Notice at: http://www.pdkintl.org/confevent/TCevent.htm April 17-19, 2007 Pre-conference dates: April 3-4, 2007 E-Learning is passé. U-learning is the new wave globally in higher education. Ubiquitous learning encompasses e-learning and emphasizes learning anytime, anywhere and anyway in both formal and informal lifelong learning environments. As u-learning and Web 2.0 technology evolve, social interaction, intercultural communications, and global collaboration increases in importance. Social networking and learning communities are integral components of u-learning. Through online social networks, young adults today gain a sense of community that is important in their daily and social life. How can we learn from this? How can we learn from our students?

- September 2004 Hyogo delegation Hawaii trip photo report [Posted By: John Southworth]
This is a wonderful photo record of Shibo Narita's trip heading a delegation of 8 students and teachers visiting Hawaii in September 2004. The purpose of this trip was two-fold: (1) to investigate exemplary distance learning programs, strategies of dissemination and implementation, evaluation and assessment, and professional development efforts and (2) to do a ground work for student collaboration in multi-culture education between Hawaii School and Hyogo Lab School. Dr. Narita's presentation to PDK/Hawaii and remote members: (1) focused on methods that have been validated through practice and research with students and faculty using web-based interactions; (2) featured collaborative application that is curriculum-driven content management and sharing for children and adults; (3) presented a case study of use of community human resources for class enrichment for teachers; and (4) provided ongoing collaborative efforts and projects for the year ahead with Hawaii school for professional development. It was an example of a continuing collaborative venture started by the PDK associations of Narita and Hawaii PDK members. A more formal agreement of collaboration is being studied (October 2004).
