April: My favourite moments from 2006 on edu.blogs.com
April was a great time for making some fantastic new friendships and getting the profile of social media raised in leaps and bounds.
3rd: HigherEdBlogCon gets on to the Teaching Strand, setting edubloggers alight with a desire to replicate it for 'lower ed'. James Farmer and I were in the HigherEd version standing up for our corners anyway.
5th: I was fortunate enough to meet Marc Prensky and push him on some of his beliefs on social media and gaming thanks to the kind invite of my new best pal, Steve Beard, with whom I then spent the rest of the evening geographing.
11th: I learned the importance of having a blog when you get misquoted in the national press.
20th: Glasgow University get their undergrad students (but only the MFL ones) into social media.
25th: Edinburgh University join them.
27th: Coming of Age is launched and gets downloaded several thousand times before the end of the month and the BBC announce their Web 2.0 plans which Stephen Heppell and I had been more than happy to feed into earlier in the year. At the end of December the thought of Aunty's social media empire at seems like a solution to an emerging problem. The 27th was a busy day: the first ever ScotEdublogger Meetup gets aired and Will says 'yes' to being our guest of honour.
