Judging by the response so far we should have about a thousand blogs up and running by mid-point of next year. This will really prove to be an interesting experiment.
Sounds like me last year. I wish him luck, and it will be interesting to see if the realities of public school implementation play out differently for him. I keep watching Pat too as he slowly builds his school sites. From what I know now, I think the adoption by request model combined with some gentle nudging has gotten better results.
For instance, I’m going to go around to our sending districts this summer and train all the Social Studies teachers how to use the articulation site we’ve been building. (It needs a little sprucing up, I know.) And our work on our Website continues which, when completed, will hopefully get even more teachers involved. It’s a slower process than I would have liked, but it’s moving forward, and that’s what’s important at this juncture.
