Celebrating Educational Blogging

On December 17th, 2007 (according to Wikipedia) the phrase "weblog" will celebrate its 10th birthday.

A growing body of educators believe that blogging, as one of the great entry points into the "read/write" web (or "Web 2.0"), is having a transformative impact on education and learning, and that we are at the start of a new cultural and scientific renaissance that will be defined by the participatory, contributive, and collaborative nature of the Web.

Please share your ideas, stories, support, or celebration for the blog in education at http://www.CelebrateBlogging.com, or add your voice here below:




To add your comments, click on the "record" or "type" buttons. (Don't worry--you can practice, erase, or re-record during the process. Clicking the record button does not lock you in!) If you want to leave a video message, you can do so using the buttons with the camera icon. To use a telephone to call in your message, click on the button with the phone icon. To "doodle" on the map, click on the "doodler" (circle surrounded by smaller circles) that shows up once you start recording!
