Generating Interesting Conversations


I'm really impressed with the conversations that are generated by my questions posed to Ask500People. The responses take advantage of the exposure that the site gets and gets not only 100 customized responses immediately but allows for comments. Here I asked "Is technology truly relevant to teaching students today?"

I also asked "Will the $100. laptop really do anything to solve the "digital divide?" Interestingly, the second most votes came from the Republic of Korea. The most votes came from, not surprisingly, the U.S.

You can place a widget on your blog, but I'm waiting until I can filter the types of questions. There are some, although fun to watch, that are not appropriate for this type of blog.
