The discussion about student work is, I think, really interesting. At the
risk of a slight "commercial," I'd like to call your attention to an article
that appeared in the May/June issue of MultiMedia Schools magazine
(http://www.infotoday.com/MMSchools) about publishing student work online.
Cathy de Moll is a friend of mine and a fascinating person who has launched
all on her own an online project-based service called OnlineClass. In this
article, she talks about the power of self-expression and how "real"
publication entices students to excel. Her specific example is with
creative writing. Take a look; it may make you smile. The full text should
be online at the above URL.
While I am at it, there's still more of interest in this issue to American
Memory fellows. Linda Joseph's CyberBee column features American Memory
collections, and our very own Judy Graves has contributed a great piece
about how to construct offline tools for online access.
