Edublogger? Want to get your story in Shel's book?

Shel Israel's looking for anecdotes from around the world for his forthcoming book, Global Neighbourhoods. After seeing what we're up to in Scotland to bring social media to the classroom and to the education establishment, he's looking for your stories from around the planet.

At the moment the comments to his post are nearly all from or about Higher Ed types, so please do let him know of your projects or good stories you know of edublogging making a difference. It might be how it's helped you professionally or it might be how its use in an educational context has had an impact on learning.

Shel's was taken aback by the power education and social media can have combined and is dedicating a whole chapter of the book to education and social media.

You might also be interested in leaving your thoughts on SecondLife as en educational tool, leading off from the experiences of SotEduBloggers Sean and Katie Farrell: Part One and Part Two.

This is a great chance to raise the profile of this high impact pedagogy in the mainstream of business, marketing, government and politics. Let's not let is slip through the net!

Ewan, thank you for your comments. I'm interested in how you're using Web 2.0 technology for education and hope that Scrapblog will be a part of that. Shel has been a great supporter of ours and we're proud to be working with him as well.
Cheers, Alex
