After a 15 hour flight from Atlanta on Tuesday/Wednesday, I’m happy to report I’ve arrived safely in Shanghai for the Learning 2.011 Conference. This is the first of several video blogs I plan to share this week from China.

I am able to access Twitter, Facebook and YouTube here behind “The Great Firewall of China” thanks to an Astrill VPN subscription I configured on my iPhone and laptop.

Being online in China is a lot like using the Internet in U.S. public schools which have not yet adopted a balanced approach to content filtering.

    Hello again. I am glad to here you made it to China alright. I was surprised by the Firewalls you talked about in your video. We take for granted the freedoms that living in the United States allows, and the speed unto which information flows. It is hard to fathom 22 million people living in one place. It must be very crowded there. I hope that from your time at the conference we here in America can learn vicariously through you about the future of learning worldwide.

  2. I am INCREDIBLY jealous that you are in China at Learning 2.011!!!

    P.S.  Nice new theme on your blog.  🙂
