  • you are a committed affordance-oriented practitioner; you try to discover in every medium new possibilities for learning, based on examples of Good Practice.
  • you, as practitioner or researcher, know that technology changes the way people communicate, the way they perceive each other, and the way they read and write.
  • you adopt an attribute-based approach, analyzing correlations between system features and learning effectiveness.
  • you are a surfer on the wave of every hype, waiting in line for a new system or the latest version of a given technology, and you want to be the first to try it out in an educational setting.
