New Blog Covers CoSN Conference

March 12, 2009 1 min read

I wasn’t able to make it to the CoSN conference in Austin this week, but Andrew Trotter, a blogger and former Ed Week reporter was there. He’s been posting his observations on his new blog.

He has this report from yesterday:

There’s been “near-constant discussion at CoSN about Twitter, Facebook, blogging, podcasting, Wikipedia, open content, curriculum wikis, online video games, and smartphones–and how those Web 2.0 tools fit together with the traditional school staples of assessment, curriculum, student privacy, and safety, budgets, and so on,” Andrew writes. “The international symposium on March 10, here in Austin, made clear that the U.S. is not alone in wrestling with these issues. The same discussions are going on in Britain, Singapore, Australia, the Scandanavian nations, and undoubtedly many other countries.”

Andrew will be filling us in a bit more over the next couple of days, so visit his blog for updates.
