weblogg-ed - Will Richardson

Will Richardson is a teacher with a passion for writing and blogging, well not just blogging, using current technologies to teach.

He is the author of An Educator's Guide to Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other New Web Tools that are Transforming the Classroom published by Corwin Press, scheduled for release in early 2006.

He as a great summary of how to use RSS for education.

He has found out that it is possible to write up a poor version of a research paper, post it to wikipedia, wait a couple of days for the world to edit and correct it for the originator. Oh my, now that is using the system. As a teacher he is concerned about it. As a former teacher, I am also. But fortunately the output would be easily cross checked so the "smart student" should see their day in court.
