He threw away his notes....

It's not about technology, but Professor Steve Greenlaw of University of Mary Washington is attempting an experiment to truly move away from ”chalk & talk” teaching in his principles of macro course this semester.

I haven’t published to this blog for most of this year.  I intend to change that with this post and again comment on teaching and learning economics with technology.  One of the new blogger.com options is the use of a toolbar that allows publishing directly from word and this post is my first test of that option.
