The persona (“Geo”) I will be assuming in these articles is taken from “The Geo Letters,” a book I wrote years ago containing a series of impressionist poems and vignettes in and about the places I have visited over decades, and which have shaped and colored me in every conceivable way. In a similar way, my life’s work in education and technology have shaped and colored me. And though it may seem improbable, these places, people, and experiences have inspired me, have drawn their own kinds of sensibilities from me.
In the ensuing articles, I will be sharing concepts in higher education from a non-linear perspective. The subjects will indeed be current and relevant to education leaders and visionaries, and particularly those who sense and embrace the transformative potential of technology in the learning process.
Imagine, if you will, spending seasons of your life wandering the World-Wide Web with the same sense of curiosity and awe as one in a previous life might have wandered through Walden Pond. That is the type of experience I intend to share in “The Geo Chronicles.”
