I've been intrigued by the potential of Twitter and microblogging in education, yet I have had concerns about security and privacy. A few days ago, I ran into Will Richardson's blog post about the new WordPress theme Prologue. Prologue provides a "twitter" or microblogging environment on a WP installation. Since we have WordPressMU on our school's webhost account, it was no big deal to create a new blog to give it a try. We have total control over privacy and access. One can only read, post or comment when logged in and accounts must be created by an administrator.

I created a "Prologue" site for my class and it has really opened my eyes to microblogging. I'm writing about my experiences on my blog.
