More About Me
Professional Information: I am the director of the Web 2.0 Labs, host of the Future of Education interview series, and founder and chair or co-chair of several worldwide virtual events, including the annual Global Education Conference, the Library 2.0 Conference, and the School Leadership Summit.

I pioneered the use of social networking in education by creating the Classroom 2.0 social network in 2007, and supported and encouraged the development of thousands of other education networks, particularly for professional development. I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, and my virtual and physical events build community and connections in education, with over 100,000 participants annually.

I am co-host of the annual Edublog Awards, and I have been the Emerging Technologies Chair for ISTE, the author of "Educational Networking: The Important Role Web 2.0 Will Play in Education," and was the recipient of the 2010 Technology in Learning Leadership Award (CUE). I have consulted for PBS, Intel, Ning, Blackboard, Microsoft, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, CoSN, MERLOT, the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Department of Education, Mightybell, and others on educational technology and specifically on social networking. You can find a full list of my projects at the Web 2.0 Labs.

Personal Information: I have the skin condition Vitiligo, and created the world's largest social network for those with Vitiligo at as well as the site. I also run a network for members of the extended Hargadon family--Hargadon is an Irish name, and all Hargadons come from Sligo. My wife and I have four children and our individual activities can be seen at We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons).

I am a beginner at all of this. I am hoping to learn more about blogging and add to the discussion. To be honest, right now I am trying to figure out what and where the discussion occurs.

Saw the small photo and thought you were having breakfast (a dish with cereals or something) . Now I see what you're really doing!
Either my brain or my eyesight is not working properly.

It's a fun little tool. I can see it being very popular with younger students (although you have to be at least thirteen to register). I did at one point get it to work in the discussion forum, but it seriously messed up the formatting of the page so as you saw, I removed it. I added it to my new blog,
