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

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.
