Blogging is a terrific idea for use in the classroom- with some reservations. Ready access to a computer is an absolute necessity otherwise the blog is a historical record of learning that has already happened. Another issue that I have already encountered is the time required to add posts. I guess that once you get into the habit and rhythm the blog will grow.
So much time can be spent on your gadgets that could easily occupy hours of your time. I must admit that I am a minimalist and have few nicknacks collecting dust on the shelves at home. I guess that I am the same on google. Just the bare minimum of clutter for me- mail, news and currency converter for that overseas trip!
I am now working my way through the web 2.0 modules in earnest so now I must recommence blogging. I have been surfing the net just as much over the past year but have just been a viewer rather than a contributor. So… if you visit my blog from now on you will see what I have to say. I hope you find it worth the trouble.
