The World Mind Network (on whose Board some of you serve) is trying an experiment in Web 2.0 publicity gathering. You or one or more of your students may be able to benefit.
We have experienced the most growth when teachers and students cruise our site (worldmindnetwork.net) and become inspired by it to enrich existing class projects, or to explore new avenues of learning. This is especially true in areas akin to environmental education, knowledge of Third World cultures, preservation of endangered artistic or musical forms in the developing world, scientific research projects which welcome input or participation from students, and Fair Trade enterprises.
So here's our proposal: if you (any member of Classroom 2.0) want to bring worldwide recognition to an academic accomplishment of one or more of your students, and if said accomplishment either has been or might be facilitated in some way through the goals of the World Mind Network (essentially through LIVE webcam video of worthy artistic, scientific, cultural, and educational happenings), then tell us in detail about your student's achievement, and we will submit a press release celebrating it to BookCatcher, OpenPress, Dimeco, WebWire, or one of the other services which are utilized daily by major media. These sites are spidered by search engines, subscribed to by journalists, and used extensively by writers, newspapers, TV and radio stations, bloggers, and content providers.
Let me know if you have questions.
