One more sign that blogs, wikis, and all the related read/write web concepts are gaining traction in Virginia education. Last year at our state technology in education conference there were only a couple of sessions and no workshops on the topics. And not much talk about them in the halls.
This year I count at least ten presentations and two paid workshops that directly address these topics of enabling students and teachers to express themselves on the web. And lots of buzz all over the place.
Small steps to be sure but very positive signs nevertheless.
