It’s August. School is just around the corner. To honor the first September in 23 years that I WON’T be going back to school, I’ve been thinking about doing a series of posts that articulate what I might have been prepping had I still been in the classroom. Aggregation literacy…wiki texts…scaffolding blogging…more. What fun I would have…But as I think about those things, I’m also wondering why there aren’t more student best practices that come to mind. I mean, I think it’s great that Steve O’Hear pointed to my kids’ Bees blog in his recent article about e-learning, but that blog is now FOUR years old! Certainly there must be other, more powerful examples to show by now, right? Some student created wikis that just make you go “Whoa!” Or stories of kids really implementing RSS feeds in ways that make us sit up and take notice. Podcast examples are all over the place…why not the rest?
It brings me back to NECC where during a Webcast I was a part of Tom Marsh asked this very question: Where are all the really, really, really great examples?
