I''m a big advocate of student publications. Many have some great ideas to share, and we encourage student blogging very strongly in Plymouth. There is nothing to stop students going farther and publishing their work in mainstream journals - if their work is good enough it should be shared widely. It''s also very motivating for them. Congratulations Lucy! Read the complete article at this link.

Ugh. Classic Politics Now Extends to Social Networking in Education.

There is a reason that so many acronyms in this arena start with P for "personal:" PLN (Personal Learning Network), (PLC) Personal Learning Communities, and PLE (Personal Learning Environments). The United States Department of Education is sponsoring a program called Connected Online Communities of Practice , a three-year initiative. 1. I run what is arguably the largest social network for educators, Classroom 2.0 with 54,000 members.

Innovation In Teaching Follow-Up
