As noted with much excitement last week, I am going to WordCamp August 16. It all got notched up a bit now when I got an email from Matt (yes that ma.tt – what a URL! I looked into getting al.an but the Dutch refused to go for such a short domain).
Anyhow (with a nudge from James who is skipping out on my offer to buy him a beer in San Francisco), Matt asked me to do a presentation on WordPress and education.
Do you think any educators use WordPress?
I thought so.
Some Reverend may tell me of 1500 examples at UMW.
It is a short preso, (15-25 minutes), but I am casting my plea out onto the waters for some folks to share their most favorite, compelling uses of WordPress in education. Not just “a teacher has a blog” but something unique, like the whole saga of Al Upton and the miniLegends, or someone else perhaps using WP in a unique way.
So while you can email them to me, leave a note in the comments, or strap a note to a carrier pigeon, the best way to keep a good thing going is to tag them wpeducation in delicious (no longer del.icio.us) and be sure to include some info in the notes field.
Thanks for helping pack my presentation bag. I wish I could get t-shirts for everyone, but my bag is pretty small.
