Another example of a use for weblogs, and a really interesting one: A collaborative reading journal. Philosophical Investigations This is the type of application I’m looking for, the nuts and bolts of how we all, but especially students, can connect through shared writing space. That is something that I’ve not thought possible until now. And the really exciting part to me is the metacognitive aspect of it. I told my students yesterday that one thing I want them to do in their own web logs is to write about their learning, their process, their thinking. Observe their thoughts with the idea of learning and solidifying that process. If they do that in pairs or small groups, how cool would that be. I think any time we do group work from here on out, we should have kids keep a web log.
