Going Digitial

What does it mean to "go digital"?  What does it mean for schools?  Kids?  Teachers?  Personally?  Professionally?

My thoughts go to YouTube, Facebook, and creating digital content.  As I look at apps like iPhoto, Screenflow, and others, they include (in them) an option to "upload to Facebook" or "send to YouTube".  It's becoming easier by the moment.

My mind also goes to the world of Creative Commons.  Should we share what we make and make it available for all?  I think that if we create digital content, it should in fact be shared...not hidden.  What do you think?

Have you been to iTunes U?  This is a great example of the sharing that should be taking place by all of us!

Have you ever been to or heard of the Khan Academy?  His instructional videos are wildly popular right now and can be viewed on YouTube or iTunes U - Khan Academy.

What's the best "digital" place to go to learn?

Please share!
