So did I know about this? Alan Levine has had blogshop running for quite some time it seems, and it looks like a great intro to Web logging, MT, RSS and more. Emphasis is on educators and using Web logs as e-portfolios, which I’ve decided is my BIG project here for 2004-2005. (Web logs as Website is gonna be enough for this year.)
And today on his other Web log, Alan writes about a “Blog-volution” happening in Phoenix, under the radar, as teachers connect and write and talk about what they’re doing with blogs in schools. News is traveling here too, in fact I’ve got my first math teacher hooked on the idea, and he’s thinking hard about how to use Web logs in his classes. (At some point, it would be good to do a brainstorm somewhere for the left-brainers out there who, as far as I can tell, are decidedly under represented in the K-12 realm of blogging. We have a lot of writing and reading and lit teachers and a slew of librarians, but what about those math/science types? Admittedly, Web logs are not as natural a fit beyond the classroom portal function. Or am I missing this too?) What I really like is that a lot of people are approaching me, now. My sales force is growing…
Alan’s right: “This is just the tip of an iceberg (in Phoenix? Yes!)” ON! ON!
