Welcome! Join me as I reflect on my learning journey with Web 2.0 tools. I'm sure I will find bandwagons to jump on along the way. Let's enjoy the trip.

Would you like to publish online?

Alec Couros suggested some Saskatchewan people that I could follow on Twitter. I am now following Rick Schwier and Dean Shareski. When I checked out Rick's blog, I came across an invitation for people to submit articles to an online journal. Go to this link to learn more about this journal. I think some of our blog posts from this class may very well qualify for inclusion in an online journal. Check it out at http://omegageek.net/rickscafe/?p=1282

Here are some of the topics they are suggesting:

Special Issue: Technology & Social Media – in education
To mark this important transition of the journal, a special issue will focus on technology & social media in education. Submitted articles should focus upon current theories, practice, or emerging trends and understandings within the context of teaching & learning, learning environments, or informal learning.

Some suggested topics are listed below:
- Social and participatory media (e.g., blogs, wikis, microblogging, video sharing) in teaching & learning.
- Mobile technologies, txting, or microblogging in learning, or implications for social justice & politics.
- Practical or philosophical discussions on open content or open educational resources.
- Implications & trends regarding open publishing & academia.
- Online communities as formal and/or informal learning environments.

- Openness and/or networks in teaching & learning.

- Case studies of successful technology integration into learning environments.
- Discussions of distance, online, distributed, or flexible learning models in practice.
- Changing views & frameworks of knowledge and implications for education.

- Social networks, participatory media, and the implications for information & media literacy.
- Personal learning networks (PLNs), personal learning environments (PLEs) or related frameworks.

- Other topics related to social media, technology, and education.
