Clay Burell has done a masterful job\nof launching and publicizing Students 2.0,\nthe new student group blog. It has been less than a month since the launch\nof Students 2.0 and it already is in the same Technorati\narena as LeaderTalk, EduBlog Insights, The Blue Skunk\nBlog, and other edublogosphere favorites. The Students 2.0 blog\nnotes in its sidebar:
We are students: the ones who come to school every day, raise our hands with\nsafe questions, and keep our heads down. Except, now we have a voice a strong\nvoice to share our ideas through a global network.
A global platform for aggregated K-12 student voice? I love it!\n
Clay's got his work cut out for him. As I've learned with\nLeaderTalk, sustaining initial momentum and enthusiasm can be\ndifficult. Also, I think he needs more authors (maybe Sylvia Martinez and others can help?) and\nhe's going to have start thinking about a succession plan. Who will replace\nthese students when they graduate? Will we follow this initial group of bloggers\ninto postsecondary education (Higher\nEd 2.0?) and beyond? The challenges are both daunting and\nfascinating.
Clay, I hope you're at NECC this year so I can\nshake your hand. Nice work! Kudos also to the students. They are off to a great\nstart. May their voices become numerous and powerful...
