responses to not doing student blogging
I love to read and struggle to read Zero Seconde, which is a blog about blogging and research and things that really interest me and that’s written in beautiful French. I can read French, but slowly and with an understanding that is often rather skewed, which can be quite interesting and quite frustrating. (I can fake a conversation quite well!) Anyway, In a long post partly responding to my post about how I’m not blogging with my students this semester, Zero Seconde writes that blogging is the future of academia, yet also that once a new academic has the network blogging gains, and can publish in more traditional ways, things change. I’m going to have to read the post again, with a dictionary, I think, because I think it makes some interesting points. Another response to my not blogging with students post is from Barbara Ganley. All worth thinking about. I’m still kind of relishing not blogging with my students to be quite honest. I did sit down last week and set up our LMS (our university uses dot lrn) with discussion forums for students to participate in and one for assignments to be posted to so they can see each others work and discuss it. Maybe I’ll blog with next semester’s students.
