A wiki about Educational Blogging

Andy Carvin writes over at his blog Learning.Now about the wiki SupportBloggging.com. This wiki appears to be a place for information about blogging for education. Lots of information there like How to Start blogging, Testimonials, and what’s the diference between social networking sites and blogs. I will definitely be recommending it to teachers and students who ask me about blogging. [Along with Blogging101 by Anton Zuiker of-course.] Which recently has been quite a few. I think Higher Ed and K-12 teachers could benefit from this. Props to Steve Hargadon for creating this resource. This site is really needed!

Internet Tablets for Education?

What do educators think about students using mobile internet devices for education? For example the Nokia 770.

Its an internet tablet with wifi built in, 800×480 touch screen, Linux based OS, bluetooth, Opera web browser, GTalk (VOIP), IM, email client, word processor, and I’ve even seen a Citrix client for it. Keyboard is not included but has been known to work via bluetooth. Retails for $359.95 USD.

I haven’t used this device but I thought it could be handy. Here are more URLs about it.
