Well not about me. Let's talk about Learning Circuits Blog.
In the Learning Circuits Blog Wiki, our current topic of discussion is LCB and its future. We've just finished a year of activity on LCB that saw increased publication by the author team, increased participation by our readers through comments, and a five-fold increase in the number of visitors. So why examine what we are doing and consider changing what we do?
Simply, we're not sure that what we are doing is really serving those we seek to involve. One result of this "self-reflection" might be that we find out, everyone is happy and we shouldn't touch a thing. But we've had indicators that this may not be the case. The author team is struggling to balance LCB and the rest of their obligations and participation by others is sporadic.
Add to this the introduction of new capabilities through new technologies that have enhanced our ability to share and communicate with each other. We've begun to wonder if there isn't a better way.
One of the clear mandates that has come from conversations amongst the Blog Squad is that we need to involve you and the others who come to LCB to read and participate in the discussions held here. After all, this is your blog, your community.
So through this wiki and a soon to be posted survey that you're encouraged to complete, we want to know what you want from LCB. The more participation in this discussion, the better chance we have of making it a dynamic site you'll come to because it enhances you as a professional.
I and the Blog Squad invite you to join us in the LCB Discussion Wiki for a lively dialogue about making LCB a better LCB! When you enter the wiki you will have read only rights. If you would like to add your comments or change anything that appears on the discussion you need to login. You will find a button at the top of the page that reads "log in to edit." (When asked for a user ID and password, enter your name or a screen name for the user ID and "learning" as the password.)
