Our own Blogger in Chief, Bill Stites, is nearing the end of his tour around Ireland with his Irish Studies students from The Montclair Kimberley Academy.


They have been posting daily on the Irish Studies blog, and have some fantastic picture sets on Flickr and videos on YouTube. They have kept their followers up to speed on new content and activities on Twitter as well.


Bill and his fellow travelers are giving us a fantastic example of what can be done with social media. Hard to think of a better use than documenting and sharing a trip abroad. Kudos to all of them!

Bill has written about his use of social media for this trip before, and I am hoping that he will have some more insights for us after his experience this year.


In the mean time, I have enjoyed following along vicariously. Thanks to Bill and the rest of the MKA travelers for sharing the trip with us!
