I just received an e-mail from a student of mine with a link to the Map of Online Communities.
"First of all, I know how interested you are in many creative and interactive internet sites and perhaps you just might use any of 'countries' in your future projects with your future classes or even us, but what really caught my eye was a country named Ning. That brought back the memories. Best ones, of course!"
This is what makes teaching with tech worthwhile.
