Gazing across the sea, the smell of pines, birches and maples keep me company. A world of berries, mushrooms and flowers all mix in the rich soil of this coast line. Unlike other oceans, other seas, the forest never leaves me, the scent of wild open oceans does not engulf me.
Summer light is indeed endless, stretching dark nights into bright days, nature’s game of morphing, blending hues of gold, saffron, and blues, all into a promise of a summer playground which goes on forever.
I know well that this is not so.
I know well.
So I turn my attention elsewhere. No need to think of the change of seasons yet.
Change and changes.
A lifetime of changing habits and habitats. A lifetime seeking meaning through change. Like ferry wheels, change may be light, lightness, uplifting, inspiring.
Fragil, at moments; a fleeting gift of a bird’s eye across one’s world; ever turning with momentary dips and rises, the promise of yet another round of changing perspective remains constant.
Through all changes, it is that which I seek – the inspirational within the narrative of change.
From Helsinki, I turn to ClanEd, intrigued by this Northern provocation of change.
Will ClanEd inspire transformational learning? Will ClanEd foster collaboration among learners? Is this a possible tool I have been waiting for, a tool which offers me more than the regular choices of a LMS? Will there be elements of openness? What changes may I find in this Northern elearning tool?
My next guest is the Chief Education Scientist of ClanEd, who will be answering these questions and more.
Topi Litmanen holds a PhD in Education from the University of Helsinki, has extensive experience as an educator and as a pedagogical advisor within elearning contexts.
A keen cyclist, a participant in marathons and occasional triathlons, Topi’s passion remains within the development of changing the e-scape of learning by providing support to teachers and clients of ClandEd, while ensuring that ClanEd continues changing into the most collaborative, user-friendly and innovative tool for educators.
Join me here, as Topi unravels the changes that ClanEd is bringing into the world of education.
Northern lights, Northern changes.
Let the North unfold.
