#edjournal - JAMES MICHIE "...a 21st Century Educator" 

A few weeks ago an idea hit me while I was getting ready for work. I immediately wrote it down in a Google document, which I shared with Doug Belshaw (@dajbelshaw) to get some instant feedback. After a brief chat I put the idea down, allowing it to ferment for a while. 

Yesterday, out of the blue, I was contacted by Nick Dennis (@nickdennis). He has been thinking about a similar idea for quite some time.
