Writingmatrix: CONNECTing students with blogs, tags, and social networking

Presenter (s): 

Vance Stevens, Nelba Quintana, Rita Zeinstejer, Sasha Sirk, and Doris Molero

Writingmatrix is a worldwide collaboration project involving students blogging in countries including Argentina, Venezuela, and Slovenia. The project utilizes tagging and social networking to make it possible for students to locate each other's blogs and then interact with each other. Teachers on the project will report their experiences and those of their students using this system.

Rita Zeinstejer is developing the project into one where two tags could be used: writingmatrix and serendipity.  Read (and comment on) her description here: http://www.webheadsinaction.org/node/245
