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 – what a URL! I looked into getting 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 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.
