I got wind of the latest incarnation of the EduBloggerCon, EduBloggerWorld. It’s a Ning social network set up by Steve Hargadon to bring Edubloggers from all over the world together. As Steve says in his latest post:
The site is not meant to replace the engaged dialog of the blogosphere, but to complement it with personal connections.
I joined right up to help my cause as I begin my new initiative to actively blog (rather than just read) and to make connections and have conversations with people all over the edublogoshpere. I’ve been preaching about the value of these connections to the faculty at school for a while now and finally I have decided to practice what I preach. I’m still a little slow and a little short on words – it’s summertime after all – but I’m working on it. What’s next for me? Twitter? That’s for another day.
