For this last episode of review:ed in 2011 I invited Christopher Dawson, contributing editor at ZDNet and Vice President of Business Development at WizIQ. Chris has a long track record in education and is one of my favorite education / technology bloggers out there. Hence it was great to have him for a review of the big stories in 2011 and also for an outlook on the coming year.
