It's All You Can WordPress at the EduBlog Diner
presentation at WordCamp 2008

Among the 100+ million/gazillion blogs estimated that are "out there" quite a few belong to educators using several flavors of WordPress. edublogs.org/ (WordPress MultiUser) alone provides free blogs to nearly 200,000 educators. The spread goes far beyond teachers blogging their experience.

We'll start with an appetizer of ways we at the NMC have tinkered with the WordPress recipe to power full featured websites. Moving on to the main buffet, we'll sample ways WordPress is used to provide university hosted blogging services for students, as a place for elementary age students to stories, as electronic portfolios, as electronic publishing platforms, as nifty plugins that connect learning resources, as alternatives for course management systems, as resources for home schooled students, as platforms for narrative, as sites for projects. and more.

If there is room for dessert, we'll see what people have tagged at delicious.com/tag/wpeducation or have brought to the table on my wikispace.

If you are going to sit back and watch, be sure to crank up the music and shout "Where It's At!"
