A couple of more edu-bloggers have checked in, probably due to the Wired article. Bryan Alexander from Centenary in La. uses student weblogs in his Lit classes, which, since I have a section of Mod Am Lit in the Fall, might be a good model. I still wonder, and this is a conversation I would really like all of us to have either here or at k-12, is how to ask a class of 11/12 kids who don’t meet in a lab and who may not all have access at home (even though they would have plenty of access around school) to keep weblogs about their reading. Just not sure about it, which is why I pretty much let the Media weblog slide on that issue. Yet I know that my journalism kids were active on it, and most if not all posted from home at some point. I really like the way Bryan not only asked his kids to talk about their own reading experience but also asked them to connect that reading to the outside world via Internet links. That connection is something I don’t think a lot of kids make without some effort.
