An in-depth post frrom Steve Hargadon, and as the creator of Classroom 2.0, SupportBlogging.com, and other communities, he's in a good position to speak from experience. :)
NECC acceptances and (more importantly) rejections came out this week... and Steve Hargadon seized the opportunity to mention that the annual edubloggercon and NECC Unplugged will be back again this year. Read all about it...
Open Source guru Steve Hargadon connects two very cool free (but not open source) services in this post. This trick also works in Google Maps. Cool.
Steve argues that "the new technologies of the Web will have a greater impact in driving educational change than pedagogies" and "OSS [and Web 2.0] programs are adopted by schools when they are non-displacing."
Steve links to two powerful (and viral) videos by Professor Michael Wesch and his students.
