Window to the EduBlogger World: August 23


On August 23 we invite EduBloggers globally to participate in 'Window to the EduBlogger World'. This is the first organised, participatory event emanating from the new social network called EduBlogger World. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing with blogging in education and as an educator here is what we invite you to do to be part of this event:
  1. Contribute your own blog post on this day and tag it edubloggerworldmeetup2007. In this post share your experiences with blogging. Where do you blog? How often do you blog? What do you blog about? Why is blogging so important to you?
  2. Do you have a photo you can share of your own blogging area (looking out of a window, your room, your classroom)? We want to collect images of EduBloggers around the world and where they blog and/or what they are looking at when they blog. Put this in your blog post, put it on Flickr.com , and post it to the Ning.
  3. Participate in a synchronous event on August 23 and meet other EduBloggers online.
  4. Sign up to be a Global Greeter: We are inviting members from all locations to step forward and be a Global Greeter. See the Global Greeter wiki page for more details about this. How many countries can we add on August 23?
