Classroom 2.0 has more than 22,000 members!

Classroom 2.0 is a fantastic on-line community of over 22,000 members who are interested in the use of collaborative technologies in education. Many of the members maintain blogs, either on the Classroom 2.0 website or independently. Classroom 2.0 offers a range of resources, including a wiki, "how-to" information and links, free live workshops, and a forum. Members are provided with their own page and blog space.

One of the great things about Classroom 2.0 is that the members are quick to share links to great resources. If you are just beginning to explore collaborative and emerging technologies, this on-line community is a great place to start!

Also take a look at Steve Hargadon's blog. "K-12 Educational Technology: Web 2.0, Free and Open Source Software, and the Future of Education." Steve is the founder of Classroom 2.0

Another good resource is the International Edublogger's Directory. The directory was created by Patricia Donaghy, in January 2008, after she responded to a Classroom 2.0 thread I started at the time, "Let's Share Links to our Blogs!". The thread is still active.
