U.S. K-12 Edubloggers at NECC

American schoolteachers have officially discovered blogging, as their first EduBloggerCon, held this weekend at NECC, the American teachers' major conference, attests. As Will Richardson says, "yes, it's official... 'we' have 'arrived.'" More coverage from Christopher D. Sessums. School 2.0 perspective. Meanwhile, Gary Stager comments on the commercial orientation of NECC, asking "Has NECC sold its soul?" Julie Lindse, meanwhile, channels Dr. Suess. Vicki Davis, meanwhile, asks about tagging standards - now wait, wasn't the whole idea of the folksonomy that there were no standards? Why yes, it was.
