Community & Connections

Taking the time to consider this deeply, I’ve reached the conclusion that the killer app in classroom blogging isn’t the platform. Kids aren’t motivated by blogging because they have  a cool space to write. The killer app in blogging isn’t blogging after all – it’s connecting and communicating with others. It’s about the community that develops around your platform.

… The connections inspire accelerating returns and positive feedback loops. The connections gives students a window into other’s lives and spaces.

Clarence says it well – it is about community & connections!
