Join the EduWeb
Mailing List has been created (in Feb 2004) to support K-12
schools in the state of New South Wales, Australia with
implementing the concept of "Student-Centred Intranets" to promote
project-based multimedia learning. This list will provide
support and advice for teachers in this area. Teachers from
outside NSW with an interest in the EduWeb concept are also
The list is not intended for technical experts, although there
certainly will be some who have subscribed, and some messages may
be technical from time to time. It is rather intended to
support ordinary teachers trying to do new and extraordinary
things in their class using Stu's EduWeb. This is an
opportunity to join in with a group of teachers who want to make a
difference in the classroom by effectively using information and
communication technologies to benefit their students.
You can ask questions, provide feedback about your experiences
with EduWeb or respond to other subscribers. You may choose
to get going sending messages right away, or you may just want to
wait and see what comes through from others. Feel free to
participate as you wish. The main thing is, in the end, that
you learn more about how EduWeb can be used at your school to
support student learning.

variety of personalities. Even though all who are subscribed
have an interest in using EduWeb at school, messages can be
misinterpreted by individuals, causing friction. Here are
some tips to avoid that friction on a mailing list:
