The ice storm has kept us home today so I have no excuse to not venture into Facebook terriotory. I knew the day would come when I’d have to explore that world …
But I need to make an old-fashioned comment first. Eduwonk, after the Facebook thingamagig was an hour old, you had already gotten your wife to sign up. How did you pull that off? In my experience, whenever educators talk, rational adults flee as far as possible from our obsession.
I’m actually looking forward to signing up and exploring Facebook. Under no circumstances, however, will I get a cell phone.
If I learn the Facebook stuff, will that make me cool? I’ve been trying to use the Obama terminology, but every time I say, “That’s the way I roll” I get hooted down.
Here’s another idea – try http://www.eSchoolsTV.com . This site allows you to post educational related video for free. It’s new and it is getting popular.
