In our district we are trying to develop a method of communication between 15 people so that we might discuss ideas and plans for district technology integration workshops and help sessions, plus possibly doing an occassional book or article discussion. Is a blog the best way to do this. Email and IM handles most of our "gotta know now" situations.
What are others doing? How do you get people to blog regularly and contribute? Mostly I feel that you have to want to participate in order to make time to mentally think and respond to others.
I am open to suggestions. Let me hear from you!
