I want to give a “shout out” to an online resource I refer to from time to time in my own research on things educational - infed.org.
They describe themselves as “millions of users and hundreds of pages exploring education, learning and community. We specialize in the theory and practice of informal education, social pedagogy, lifelong learning, social action, and community learning and development.”
I find infed particularly useful for readable pieces on educational researchers and educational ideas.
It is the type of site that is non-threatening to the person not trained in research and also useful to the researcher who needs some insight into an aspect of education.
Have a look at their full list of “Thinkers and Innovators” here.
I rather like the one on Martin Buber and the acknowledgement of his focus on relationship and the dialogical nature of existence. I wonder what Buber would have made of social-media?
I like to think though that he too might have used infed.org.
