During the week anyone with interest in the topic is invited to respond and/or contribute. The lead contributor of the month will monitor posts and respond as appropriate. For the remaining Mondays of the month, the lead contributor will add to the original position piece encouraging additional discussion. Some features we plan on incorporating are links to other blogs on our site, links to other websites, interesting graphics, interactive games and activities, user surveys, participant profiles, ability to subscribe and be notified when posts occur.
