I wonder sometimes why sites like for educators dont get up and moving more quickly. I am heavily imvolved with various artists forums online, and they are much more active spaces for sharing, learning, discussion etc. And new ones get going quickly - I was involved with one Glasss art forum, which became a vibrant online community months, if not weeks, after opening.
Having been used to those communitites, I find it very frustrating that there is virtually no replies to posts here, few new threads, etc.
I know one answer will be that we have to reach a critical mass for that to happen, but as I have witnessed in the glass community, that happens much faster in other fields. Every new education community I have joined has been slow to get off the ground, and eventually, I will stop coming and checking, as there is nothing new to read or respond to.
Why is it that teachers seem so reluctant to utilise this amazing learning/sharing/social opportunity? I think that edublogger world has huge potential, but I am concerned that my patience will not last till that potential is fulfilled.
And yes, I am being intentionally controversial (hmm, maybe not...argumentative?) - anything to provoke a response! :)
