The M-Hub Project is officially launched. Twenty of us shared ideas for building a digital platform that would network our extended school community. The idea is to help students learn to build personal learning networks from "the inside-out".

The students had terrific ideas for using the hub. They also impressed the adults with their sophisticated suggestions on the technical side of the project. Staff in attendance represented the Art, the Media Center, Counseling, English, Tech, and Religious Studies. An alumna joined us en route to the Horn of Africa where she will work to cure tropical diseases. Needless to say, we had a rich variety of perspectives.

Perhaps the best sign of the meeting: When I arrived home from the meeting, I had three emails waiting from attendees that bubbled with more ideas for our enterprise.

The next step is to build a leadership team with the students. I want to meet with them next week. Another general meeting is scheduled for May 11. The topic? A platform for our network! I will keep you posted.
