Look at me. I’m bloglining and furling! I seemed to have figured out how to furl stories from my blogline account and have them show up in the box you created for me on the Lamp staff weblog. I need to organize my blogline subscriptions to make this process more efficient. When you have a chance, could you take a look at the stories I’m posting (central.hcrhs.k12.nj.us/lamp) and my blogline subscriptions and suggest any sites that I should add? I’m trying to provide the staff with models for writing along with topics that might help generate story ideas. Thanks, Tom
Oh, yeah. He gets it. I keep thinking that if teachers just put a little time into this, they’d see the potential. But it does take some investment, and I know it’s not easy to carve out an extra 15 or 20 minutes in a day that’s already way too full. Stuff like this gives me a little hope.
And stuff like the weekend I just spent with a group of 30+ Seton Hall Ed. D. students. We did a full 12 hours of that blogwikirssfurl thing, and I think for the most part they got it, too. (Here’s the blog we started.) We spent the last hour yesterday just going around the room and talking about the ways they could implement these technologies at their own schools, and their ideas were great; a lot of collaboration and articulation…and genuine excitement. The Student Teacher to Teacher Connection is just one example. Their ideas really pumped me up.
But, as always, now the true test…will they keep blogging? Will they be successful in their own blogvangelism? Will they find the time to make it to where Tom is, where the applications are working and reaping benefits? We’ll see…
