Blogging, Vlogging, and Podding (Via Remote Access.) Here Clarence Fisher begins to differentiate between the educational uses of these various read/write web technologies: “Blogs are very much about kids lives, their thoughts, and about formative conversations. Vlogs and podcasts are more about getting voices and opinions out there for others to listen to. They are about production, digital skills of representation and content creation.”
He also captured this thought, which has nagged at me for a while: “Vlogging and podcasting are much more a one way affair then blogging is.”
A few days ago I offered thoughts on “the difference between blogs and wikis, and what each is best suited for,” which seemed well received, so I thought I’d pass this on as a follow up. All of these tools are exciting, but educators, even enthusiastic early adopters are going to have to learn to use each in its place, where it is most effective.
