I recently went to a conference in south dakota called TIE which is a yearly technology workshop. They are starting to embrase the things our kids love to do at sites like bebo, myspace, facebook and other site. These are not new concepts it is just something the kids do now. They nolonger hang out at the arcade they hang out online and type message to each other. The real question is how do we get our teacher, staff, parents and administrator to embrace this way of communicating. I dont have the answer but I know that we can moderate our intranet and setup stuff like wordpress (multiuser) or built in apple server blog software.
I like the Joomla for content managment software with its variety of modules and components.
