I’ve gotten a smattering of e-mails in the last few days from teachers wanting to know more about Web logs and blogging. I think more and more people are starting to catch on to the potential, and I also think this is a great opportunity for eBN to establish itself as the support network it’s intended to be. The new look Web site, the publicity of late, and all of our good thinking seems to be gelling together at the right time.
Anne includes some excerpts of e-mails she’s been exchanging with teachers across the country, and one strikes me:
Some say weblogs would certainly lead to some revolutions in publishing given the speed it grows. I’m not that worried. However, I do want to try some blogging. I’m wondering whether those who have tried can share their experience of implementing weblogs in teaching.
That is exactly what eBN is about…I’m wondering if Pat or others have some ideas for beginning to gather that content, and whether we need to solicit some article ideas, set some deadlines, and just develop the content in general. Suggestions?
