An Audio Project

I have decided to start an audio project regarding learning and teaching. I want to find out from as many people as possible how they learn. There are some simple questions, and will post these to a site as soon as I get that set up and have more than my introduction recorded.

After some demographic info; age, level of education, profession.
The questions I will ask are:
How do you best learn something new?
Think of the best teacher you ever had, in or out of school, what made them a good teacher? No names please
If you were to teach someone a skill, how would you go about doing it?
Under what circumstances do you find it difficult to learn?

I am looking forward to doing this, and will have some info about how to contribute to the project later on.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

It has been awhile since I last blogged, summer it seems, slips away quickly. Many things are happening, but right now, I am sitting on the Porch at camp, watching the sunset. Been up here a week, and have two more to enjoy. Need to move inside however, due to the dang mosquitoes.
It is nice to getaway from work for a bit. I did go into work Thursday to fix a server issue. Had to bring Eric home anyway, so it was not too bed. Five hours one-way is a bit excessive otherwise. Loaded Remote desktop on the laptop, so I can do some things, from here. Tried to talk someone at work through some of it by phone, but no dice.
I won the 140 character book review, I may have upset some administrators, but heck, I am an administrator also. Entered the Technology poetry contest, with a piece I wrote earlier when one of The Servers died on me. “The Dead Server Blues” not great, but it was already written.
Nice to get mentioned on another blog, I lead the blogs at Students from an education class, made some comments. This writer seems to understand how. Education and learning can be improved by technology.
Time to get back to important things, making Some chairs, re glazing windows, watching loons, an being with my wife.
