Contributors Wanted

When I started this blog back in May during the CNIE (Canadian Network for Innovation in Education) conference, my intention was for it to become a forum for sharing ideas, research, resources and perspectives on the net generation theme. I did not want this to be just my personal soapbox. So far that has not been very successful. While my postings have generated some comments, there are virtually no postings from the other contributors I have invited. So I am throwing open the invitation. If you having something to say and share about the net generation, I invite you to become a contributor to this blog. Just send me your e-mail address and I'll set you up.

The way blogs work is a bit different from comment boards. People generally post in their own blogs and then read each others' blogs and link to them. So in a sense each blog is someone's personal space, while the totality of blogs is the common space.

I understand that is how many people USE blogs but I did not want this blog to be my personal soapbox. Neither do I want it to be a threaded discussion or comment board. As I said in my post, I want this to be a forum for sharing ideas, research, resources and perspectives on the net generation theme.

Hi Mark,
I think I agree with Stephen on this - largely because I already have two blogs to maintain, and would rather keep that going than start trying to blog across multiple locations.

Meanwhile, I only discovered your blog recently - but it does cover a topic I am interested in - and have been writing about on occaision for the past couple of years. I have to thank you for finding a lot of research that has slipped me by though!

My own posts on this topic are collected here: http://learninggames.wordpress.com/category/digital-natives/
