What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?
I started Classroom 2.0, FutureofEducation.com, Ning for Education, Vitiligo Friends, the CUE and NECC networks, and many others! I did consulting work for Ning for 18 months around educational uses. I currently work for Elluminate. I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, and am particularly passionate about Web 2.0, social networking, Free and Open Source Software, computer reuse, and computing for low-income populations. I run the Open Source Pavilion and speaker series for the North-American NECC, CUE, and T+L edtech shows, am the organizer of the annual EduBloggerCon, and hold a series of free workshops (Classroom 2.0 LIVE) around the United States to help in-the-trenches educators learn about the uses of Web 2.0 in the classroom. I am also the Emerging Technologies Chair for NECC, a regular columnist at School Library Journal, and a blogger at www.SteveHargadon.com. I have consulted for PBS, Intel, Ning, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, CoSN, and others on educational technology and specifically on social networking. My interview series can be found at www.FutureofEducation.com, www.Conversations.net, and www.EdTechLive.com. My wife and I have four children.
