The Vancouver Education Blogging Sessions (Via D’Arcy Norman Dot Net.) D’Arcy shares some reflections on what he calls “some extremely interesting and engaging discussions about the nature of ‘blogging’ in education.” His thoughts are well organized with bold titles, and include this important gem: “Blogging is not a classroom/class activity.”
I’m not sure I entirely agree, in fact I’m sure I don’t (especially in a 1:1 environment, or a lab, or with a pod of computers students can visit throughout the day or class period), but this sentiment might help teachers new to blogging understand that it doesn’t all have to happen in their classroom, an important aspect of the anywhere anytime learning blogging can facilitate – and an important aspect of the “porous classroom” of the 21st century.
UPDATE:Blogging is a Class/Classroom Activity … for now (Via A Difference.) Darren adds his thoughts on the subject.
