I am a director of instructional technology for a school in Michigan and just stumbled across your blog. Thank you for making this video...it is a great testament to show show teachers on how blogs can be used to enhance and motivate students. I will definately show it to teachers in my district as I teach them about educational uses of blogs.

Eric --

As I wrote in an email tonight to you, my wife was just reading the latest issue of "Harvard Education Letter" (May/June 07) when she suddenly said to me, "Hey, isn't Eric they are mentioning here in the article the same guy you blog with?" Congrats on being highlighted. Yet another well-earned feather in your cap!

Just saw your video on "Guerrilla Season"...and plan on showing it to a board of trustees for a private school in Kansas in 2 weeks that has hired me to consult with them about how to facilitate the 'future of learning'. Concepts aside, you nail it with this video.

Now that I'm headed back into the project -- and shelving "think:lab" -- I'm definitely beginning to find myself saying, "What would Eric do with this assignment?" Hopefully I'll find out in time for myself!

Cheers...and congrats again!
Christian

Your project is a wonderful way to teach, and your video is a perfect way to share. I'll be directing teachers to the video when I give a workshop on blogs and wikis in education.

I am a high school English teacher, and I have to say, this book blog project truly inspires me. I am just beginning to become familiar with blogging, and your project captures the essence of how successful blogging in the classroom can be.

What I like the most is that you involve students from other districts as well; this further enhances the level of communication that can be obtained through blogging. If parents and siblings were to get involved as well, the lines of communication on the home front would also be expanded.

I recently created my own educational blog, and I highlighted the details of this project and how much it impressed me. Feel free to check it out at: http://cavek.edublogs.org/2008/01/25/student-blogging-project/
