The Dissonance of “Blogs in Education”

The Dissonance of “Blogs in Education” (Via CogDogBlog.)

From the words, experiences of colleagues here, I have a nagging ring about the phrase “Blogs In Education”, something I likely have used myself and of which are countless conference sessions, journal articles, PhD theses… It’s the “in” that bugs me. The disconnect for me is this phrase presumes that blogs can be something that lies solely within the confines of education, excluding the personal nature of blog writing, the personal ownership of blog writing, and the connectivity in our lives that naturally does not stop at the edge of campus.

It seems Alan Levine was involved in some of the same conversations as D’Arcy Norman who commented here.
