Barbara Mikolajczak
Hi all, below is the log from the Immersive Education Initiative's "inside scoop" Twitter group for the month of July 2008 (you can always track at http://twitter.com/immersive if you'd rather not wait for the monthly logs). You'll notice that some of the long links in the log below don't work, since they're copied directly from our Twitter archives so if you want to visit these sites but the link is broken below you can get to them from http://twitter.com/immersive   Barbara
