Recently I stumbled across EduClipper.  Seems to be perfect for schools who shy away form social networking tools or whose leaders just aren’t drinking any of the social networking kool-aid.  Still in beta I presume, as when I went to sign up, I had to, um, “apply.”  Here is the response I got.

What a difference a week makes! Saturday the Edublogger awards were announced, and I was so sure I did not win, I did not even go into Second Life to hear who did, nor did I tap into the many portals made available live (like Edtech Talk, Skype, and others…) You see, as I told […]

Recently Carolyn Foote, a friend who is honestly a friend in the virtual sense, as I only know her from Twitter, blogging, webcasts, and Ustream forums, has challenged my thinking about the library.
