Connected Learning

Will Richardson raises an interesting point at the Connectivism Conference this week...
Am I connecting my students with learning? He gives the example of a teacher IMing with a student. While I was listening to this, I was IMing a student. I wonder how meaningful our conversations really are, however. Most students ask surface questions, like what's the homework, or what did I miss yesterday? How can I foster more meaningful dialog with my students?
