Here I am joining yet another community of web 2.0 proponents. It's like leaving those "loosely connected pieces" or a "subject scent trail" through the web. But enough gripes about the lack of integration.

I do considerable work here at the university and within the secondary school system advocating for the use of social software in the teaching and learning process. Of late I've been pushing the use of Elgg - a.k.a Eduspaces - and have developed a variety of Elgg based social…

Hi Michael -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.

Michael, thanks for your comment. I too appreciate your depth of understanding of what WeAreTeachers is trying to accomplish. I don't want to get WAT accused of soliciting commercial content because that is truly not our goal... I would love to connect you with our technical strategist, kelly looney, he has a site on the classroom 2.0 ning thing. In any case, I think the social aspect of "social networks" should always be for open learning and that is our goal... however, I also believe that teachers should be rewarded for their thought and expertise and not have to work odd jobs to support their income that are unrelated to their teaching experience. We want to create a community where teachers benefit from their work through this thing we are calling a knowledge marketplace... Please keep in touch... we need folks like you.
