While I am an enthusiast re the appropriate and reasonable use of IT, I am wondering if the increasing proliferation of social networking tools might not lead to user exhaustion. Is it possible that users will soon fall by the wayside as a result of tool exhaustion. :-)

good quesion Paul - I think the key is ensuring that the tools are relevant and useful. A core aspect of what we are doing is gathering ongoing empirical data from users, from teachers to find out what they like and don't like, what they might find useful. If the tool isn't going to add anything teachers won't use it. Not saying I have the answer but we are very aware of this as an issue.
