Great blog post relating to the current Digiteen Dream Team work and the criticism that has been coming about the project. Lisa Winebrenner is a great encourager and her post means so very much to me. The students will see a copy of this on their Digiteen Wall -- a wall I've created to share the feedback and emails on the work they are doing and to help them plan what they should do next as part of their work.
Digiteen Dream Team is in Cnet.com - the kids are probably getting MORE criticism than support, but if there is criticism, let it be mine. I admire what they are doing and respect their right to speak out on things that matter to them.
Vinnie Vrotney shares his successes with implementing Web 2.0. Vinnie is a great leader who has a servant's heart and incredible attitude. I'm always inspired when Vinnie is around. What he's seen with changes is what I've seen here - sometimes teachers will test the waters in this way and with a little success - they are willing to put it into their curriculum.
