One of the most powerful aspects of Manila is the ability to collaborate with other classes both near and far, and I’m itching to do that this fall. Luckily, Barbara seems willing to explore some ideas of having her Middlebury students and my journalists do some weblog work. And I know that Joe and Terry and others have mentioned the idea and the desire. I’ve been thinking that much like the shared server consortium, we need a place to keep potential collaborative ideas. I’ll start by adding a link on the nav bar to a “story” where I’ll list those looking to hook up with other schools or classrooms. Just send me an e-mail if you want to be added to the list. We’ll see how it goes.
