Topic: District Communication
Last week I used this blog to gather ideas from participants in a workshop I conducted in Minnesota. It worked really well!
I plan to continue doing this, but decided it might not be such a hot idea to use this blog for that purpose. So I've created a new blog using Blogger.com. The sole purpose of this new blog will be to offer participants an opportunity to share ideas and create an archive they can return to at a later time.
I thought about making a new blog for each group, but I'm not certain that it's a good idea to litter the cyber landscape with a bunch of single purpose blogs. Also, participants can then review not just their own ideas, but also input from folks they've not met or worked with.
I think I see lots of potential here. Particularly in terms of giving a voice to those adults (and students, for that matter) who never speak out in large groups.
