Talking Ed.: Overcoming Challenges through Social Media

Talking Ed.: Social Media

Talking Ed. with Lisa Durff

Episode 003 (View entire series)

Earlier this week I had the opportunity spend time talking with Lisa Durff (@durff+Lisa Durff). She discussed her special needs and the importance of social media and her personal learning network (PLN). In particular, Lisa makes heavy use of Second Life and Twitter as they enable her to interact with others in meaningful ways.

You can visit Lisa’s blog to become acquainted her work, interests, and thinking. Especially note this post for a bit of background on her physical challenges and insight into ways that technology helps her overcome them.

I think that you’ll find that Lisa’s ideas and experiences will open your eyes to new possibilities about technology’s ability to empower us. I know her story inspires me.

Inspirational Video: Father and Son Boston Marathon Team

Hoyts Receive ESPYHere is another inspirational moment from the 2013 ESPYS. The Jimmy V. Perseverance Award was given to Bostonians Dick Hoyt and his disabled son Rick who compete in marathons and triathlons.

It’s also a must-see video. Trust me. You’ll be glad you watched it.
