I wanted to share an article with the group that I found helpful in answering some of our research questions. It can be found at:
The positive aspects of blogging is that this technology has opened many doors for communicating by allowing the blogger to link to experts and allowing others to participate in the construction of the blogger’s knowledge. In addition because blogging is linear in nature the learning is documented and offers opportunity for reflection. However, along with this tremendous opportunity for the construction of knowledge also comes the opportunity for risk in that the public nature makes this technology of blogging somewhat controversial. Therefore, in considering the appropriateness of this technology, Ferdig and Trammell offer suggestions for implementing blogs in the classroom including the need for defining specific learning outcomes, defining the concepts of blogging and providing a strict set of rules. (2004).
My thoughts on appropriateness is that the public nature of blogging is also a limitation. In other words, in addition to providing a strict set of rules for students when using this public technology, do you think there are any problems associated with blogging for the larger community – the school, administration, parents etc. ?
