Blogs in Education

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What is a Blog? A blog is a personal website that contains content organized like a journal or a diary. Readers catch up with blogs by starting at the top and reading down until they encounter material they’re already read. Though blogs are typically thought of as personal journals, there is no limit to what may be covered in a blog. While the earliest blogs were created by hand, blogging becam widely popular with the advent of blog authoring tools.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

The information in this series has been something I've been presenting, writing, blogging about and more recently doing workshops around.

Recommendations The intent of this series is to capture my thinking at the start of 2009 about the tools and methods for work and learning.

Transparency is the new objectivity

David Weinberger

You can see this in newspapers’ early push-back against blogging. He replied (paraphrasing!), “If I tell you, how can you trust what I write?,&# to which I replied that if he doesn’t tell us, how can we trust what he blogs?

The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

This past week, I attended the SharePoint 2009 conference in Las Vegas. I’ll provide some feedback on that particular release in another blog posting (read Bill Simser for now) but what the conference itself got me thinking about was that, thankfully, the standalone LMS is definitely going to become redundant. Coaches, mentors, online buddies need to coexist within the wiki’s, blogs, discussion forums, webcam meetings, online presence, etc.

Social Learning – Highlights

Harold Jarche

Julien Pouget : Social learning can be considered a way of learning that is based on collaborative practices and internet technologies associated with them (wikis, bookmarking, blogs, etc.). Christophe Deschamps : Less formalistic than knowledge bases, these tools [blogs, wikis, company social networks] which convey conversation within organizations enable us to understand formal knowledge and also the informal context that drives them, and give them all their meaning.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

From time to time, I like to reflect on my feelings about blogging, and then write about them in an entry in my blog.
