Interview with a Biology cyber-teacher

ScienceOnline’09: Interview with Stacy Baker, Coturnix [Bora Zivkovic], A Blog Around The Clock, July 9, 2009. [FriendFeed entry]. Excerpt:

The web makes current science accessible to my students. The Open Access movement and science blogs make it easy to connect my students with scientists and original research. The web is a great way to make science exciting again. My students get tired of learning about what’s already been done and it excites them to talk with scientists about what is currently being researched.

Comment: An inspiring example of a way in which the combination of the OA movement, Web 2.0 and social networking tools can be valuable, not only to current researchers, but also to researchers-to-be.
