Weblogs enter New Brunswick school

The image âhttp://radio.weblogs.com/0110772/cahm.pngâ� cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Seeing as Jacques Cool has already broken the news to the French-speaking crowd over on ConstellationW3, I guess I ought to write about it now...

Todd and I have been working with elementary school le Centre d'@pprentissage du Haut-Madawaska in northern New Brunswick in order to provide weblogs to all of their students and teachers. We took inspiration from the excellent project that started earlier this year at Institut St-Joseph in Quebec and welcomed support from the good folks at the provincial Department of Education.

Some classes have already started blogging in full force and others will follow. Roberto Gauvin, the principal (and school webmaster), is behind this like you wouldn't believe. He has turned the home page for the school into a weblog. He's jazzing up the teachers, evangelizing, fiddling with templates. He's pushing out post after post explaining what's happening inside (and sometimes outside) his school. It's nice to build something and see it get used like this!

One of the things I find slick about this deployment is that by providing per-class OPML files, we have been able to practically effortlessly build a public bird's eye view of what's happening in the space using the Bloglines aggregator. I think it might function as a gateway drug to the RSS way of life for some of the teachers and parents. Anybody know of good French language feeds that could be of interest to them? (I'm thinking along the lines of French equivalents of BBC news feeds, Word of the Day, etc.)

(Technical caveat if you want to replicate this: Bloglines apparently won't import an OPML file if you just give it a URL. You have to save the files to your drive then send them over.)

So NB doesn't have to envy Quebec anymore, it's got its blogging school too now! And with the energy they're putting into it I wouldn't be too surprised to see other schools dive in.

"Introducing disruptive technologies for learning" symposium

Don't know why I didn't get the good news out earlier. The symposium proposal that seven co-conspirators (across three continents no less) andI prepared was accepted for the ED-MEDIA conference.

One interesting meta-note about the development of the proposal: it was built in a collaborative manner over a few pages in my personal wiki. The proposal document went through dozens of updates. (See the revision history.) The process went quite smoothly, undoubtedly more easily than it would have gone if we had been passing revisions around by email.

Many thanks to Sebastian for leading the preparation of this proposal! Here's Seb's post -

I am very pleased to announce that an international collaborative proposal for a symposium at EdMedia 2004, Lugano, Switzerland, was accepted yesterday.
