Just a bit of an update on our international Web logging efforts. Our collaborations with two Polish schools and a local elementary school has been slowly but surely coming to fruition. Regardless of the ability to bring everyone to the same Web space, it would still be a lot easier to plan and create these projects if everyone was in the same room. I still think the potential is there for some valuable exchange of ideas, but it’s now pretty much up to the teachers involved to make it happen. The other bit of news is that we’re also starting a “cultural exchange” Web log with a class in Brazil which should be up and running later this week. Also, we’re on the trail of a possible collaboration with a school in Israel.
I’m really hoping these come off and are done well because they are obviously potential best practice examples of what Web logs can do. And if anyone has any thoughts or ideas for other connections, please let me know.
