EdubloggerWorld: Free candy floss for all!

Are you an educational blogger? Do you feel excited about the potential blogging and associated Web 2.0 tools are having and will continue to have on education around the world? OK, join us at EdubloggerWorld and get your free candy floss today! The 'candy floss' is virtual of course and is your reward for being part of a motivated, connected and aspiring global group. Thanks to Darren Draper, Steve Hargadon and inspired by conversations with Vicki Davis this new Ning has been established to provide a home for educational bloggers to find each other and communicate.

Who knows exactly where this will lead us, but it is a brave step embracing internationalism and an holistic approach to what it means to be a blogger. Already we have over 100 members, we have blog posts on the Ning in other languages, we have interest groups established and a Frappr map to show locations and blog addresses.

Do not be intimidated, come and join us. Do not think this is just for tech gurus or tech nerds (!). We are all in the same boat, trying to work out how blogging and online communication can enhance what we do as professional educators and what we do with our students (of all ages).

Thanks for the pointer Julie; I joined yesterday. At first I wasn't sure about the need for EdubloggerWorld when we could just as easily meet on Classroom 2.0. I've had a look around and do see differences. In fact I've been thinking a lot about blogging recently (since Edubloggercon in Atlanta). I've come to the realization that my blogging has been too scattered, that I need to "take up residence" somewhere. So I also launched a new blog, not for projects, but just for me this week. You can find it at I'll share how it's going on EdubloggerWorld.
