going to be teaching with blogs again
OK, we’ll be blogging in the IKT og lÊring or ICT and learning segment I’m teaching. How could we not? We start today, and this time we’ll be using WordPress.com‘s hosted blogs, rather than Blogspot – that way I’ll get the ease of a hosted system students can “own” after the course (good pedagogy for them to own their blogs and also I don’t have to worry about post-course comment spam) and I get trackbacks and so on. (Was it Martin who suggested this at Blogtalk?) Here’s the course blog I just set up, which will in time link to the student blogs they’ll be setting up today.
ICT, by the way, is European for Information and Communication Technology. I have no idea why the abbreviation is only in use in the EU – I suppose funding bodies describe the internet and things as ICT so everyone else follows suit so they’re eligible for funding.
