And We are back again! With Education, Open Source, Tech Days and Joe!

Hello!! Its been more than 6 months since I made my last blog entry... Sorry for that as I was busy working with loads of stuff in Sun Clusters, OpenSolaris Marketing and in Campus Ambassador Program.. But now I am back with some interesting stuff...


Sun Tech Days happened at Hyderabad from 18th Feb to 20th Feb which was attended by many many people! Many legends including James Gosling were there for the show! Joe Hartley was there for the event on 20th Feb and I took this opportunity to catch up with him about developments on education, open source and technologies to look for! Joe gave us some insights on what the future of education might be in light of growing adoption of social networking services like OSUM and penetration of the network. With help from Vasudha who is our campus ambassador at Manipal University, we recorded this pool side talk :-) Here is the video:



It was very interesting to talk to Joe after an year of WWERC 2008 held at San Francisco where I got a chance to interview him on similar lines. Watch that video here!

This advice you gotta take!! - Joe Hartley to new age students and teachers!

One thing which came out very clearly during the panel discussion held during the Worldwide Education and Research Conference 2008 is that the learning methodologies and principals are changing everywhere in the world. Education is getting more and more into collaborative learning and sharing of knowledge and resources. So to sum it up, I did a quick interview of Joe Hartley (for those who don't know,  he is the Vice President -Government, Education and Healthcare for Sun Microsystems). Even though being hard pressed with his busy schedule took out time for two quick questions at the end of the day. Thanks to my fellow ambassador Sergay, we recorded the interview. And here is what he would advice to the students and teachers of today who would have to take up the burden of transition from the classic style "leacture based, half duplex learning" to "full duplex, community based collaborative learning."
