World’s Youngest Video Blogger

I’ve been looking for starting points to introduce my upcoming ECMP 455 (ICT in the Classroom) class to the world of blogging, and the potential implications for learning … and I think I just found a glimpse into the future.

BoingBoing reports the story of Dylan Verdi, who become an instant “pheblogenomenon” as she become the world’s youngest video blogger. If you want to know the full story, check out the video from her father Michael Verdi on what happened, and how she became featured on an ABC new segment. For me, this really illustrates what is now becoming possible with (what is quickly becoming) basic equipment and a whole lot of imagination (not to mention bandwidth).
