      Fantastic. Share with those who are struggling to get started in their creative writing. Use as a starter in an English lesson.

Building an Internet Culture - 0 views

  • Don't distribute the technology randomly. Electronic mail is useless unless the people you want to communicate with are also online, and people will not read their e-mail unless they want to. Therefore, you should focus your effort on particular communities, starting with the communities that have a strong sense of identity, a good record of sharing information, and a collective motivation to get online.

      This community could so easily be the students - but how often do schools seem to be obsessed with givgin staff lots of access to technology and email but block/restrict students' use of it?

    I would also like to second this - from using diigo in lessons as a starting point, it'd be really handy to move my bookmarks around so I know that when students load up the main webpage, they can see the link I want them to use straight away.

    There's also the issue that after a while, the volume of them will make them less acessible. I like the idea of moving links up and down.
