I shared my Web log “vision” with the admin team at my school today and lo and behold I think they got it. I’ve learned my lesson in the past and avoided the “really heavy stuff” like RSS and CMS and all those other initials that tend to make newbies’ eyes glaze over. I just stuck to the concept of distributed content creation, collaboration, ease of use, and knowledge management. Eight Powerpoint slides and about 20 minutes of tilling produced this:
My wildest dreams answered. Next week I go to the board. The superintendent has already voiced his support. It looks like we’re in Web log business…gulp (again…)
What really intrigues me now is the articulation piece of this. For the first time in these parts, teachers have a real ability to work together K-12 if they want to. Sitting down with the feeder districts and creating common space might be a very, very cool outcome of all of this. More on all of this tomorrow…
