Amazing Resources from UGC for Connected Ed

I'm working on putting together resources for parents and interested schools on what is out there in connected media for the classroom and home. The challenge is THERE IS A LOT OUT THERE. Lots of user-highlighted stuff. To me, this is an interesting world of User Generated Materials (blogs, videos, podcasts) because there is a need for these voices and not a good "professional" source to bring this all together that doesn't cost an arm and a leg as a service...or that isn't trying to create a walled garden and own the space all by themselves.

This space, which is a blend of Edublogging and self-publishing, needs something like BlogHer to monetize it so teachers and parents aren't creating these content spaces out of the goodness of their hearts.

More to follow. Ping back with thoughts.
