Following and reading blogs, participating in ning, contributing to wikis, writing in my blog
, I haven't thought this much in years. It truly is an amazing phenomenon. I feel so intellectually alive. I'm inspired and challenged constantly. The blogs I read lead me to question and explore new tools and Websites. I haven't written this much since I was in school. It is all so exciting and energizing. For me, classroom 2.0 could just be about my own growth and learning and that would be enough (Dayenu)
Of course, there is so much more to it. And, finding ways to help my students and colleagues feel what I'm feeling is the next step. I'm about to teach and "intro to Web 2.0" class (which I've mentioned in a previous post)
. My class is already full (after 3 days)! I hope I can help my colleagues to see the potential I see and feel the buzz that I feel. This is the first step to bringing it to the kids. I think teachers have to feel it for themselves first. I hope I can bring that to them. I think, with the help of this community, I probably can!
