Just recently I have been enjoying listening to the Worldbridges webcasts. The name is very accurate as the guys there do bridge the world in numerous ways. They are in North America (both the US and Canada) and have people skyping in from all over. Last Sunday it was Josie Fraser from EdtechUK and another week it was Suse from Denmark. Skype really is amazing. I have just downloaded it and I am impressed with the clarity of the sound and it's very good value. Free! Free telephone calls regardless of where you call or how long you call. This conversation between people who have similar interests is really making bridges across the world.
On another matter I am wondering if it would be good to have a directory of Australian Edubloggers. Some time ago Leigh Blackall expressed a wish to have people comment on his blog if they are an Australian blogger to get a sense of who they are. He really gets us thinking about what we could do to increase the uptake of this reflective practice. Now there is a wiki which is a Directory that lists all Australian edubloggers who want to be listed. In this way we can support each other and learn from each other. I hope that this can be the start of an edublogging community that will have benefits to all on the list.
This Directory uses pbwiki - short for Peanut Butter wiki. This has recently been re-launched. It really is very fast, simple and easy. It’s free and the interface has been improved. As Derek Baird says it’s even easier than making a peanut butter sandwich. Have a look and see how you can use it.
