An article I wrote a few months ago called “Weblogs: Learning in Public” is out now in On the Horizon, which is a strategic planning journal for the educational sector. It’s in a special issue edited by Drew Davidson, with lots of other papers about videogames and new media in education – I particularly like the one by Mia Consalvo about cheating and walkthroughs as educational techniques. The electronic version is subscribers only, but your library may have the paper version. If you want a copy, email me and I’ll email you the final version.

So here you go (that’s a PDF, btw)!
