Hi Rob -- I think I may have driven through Swan River one summer years ago on a cross country trip in my old slant six Dodge. Welcome to the Mashup, but I don't see the banner in your group list, so I think you have one more step:
Click on Sue Hellman above this message to navigate to my page. Part way down on the left is a Canadian map under My Groups. If you click on that and then look beneath the main banner (right of center) on the group page, you should see + Join this Group. Click and that should do it.
Hi Rob -- 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.
Interesting gadget -- I'm using the Conduit toolbar which can be cutomized for your own learning community and doesn't have the ads.
