Today is the official birth date of the Edublogs Magazine. It’s been almost a year from the idea-dancing-around-our-head stage, trying to come up with a way to create an umbrella blog that would bring together the exciting Edublogs community.
We wanted to provide a place where Edublog members could publish articles offering their special insights into education today, past, and the future of online education technologies.
We wanted to bring in educational experts and professionals to provide insights into their specialties for educators and students around the world, as well as the Edublogs community.
We also wanted to get help from top blogging professionals on how to blog from a personal and professional perspective.
It’s a big to do list, but we’re very excited about how we’ve brought it all together under one roof.
