C-Net gets on the blogs as learning tools bandwagon with a pretty good overview of the direction this is going (though we still can’t get past the “online journal” label…) They quote Clarence Fisher in the lead:
Like other teachers bringing blogging into the classroom, he thinks the online journals will spark students’ enthusiasm for computers, writing and opining.
“They’re learning the technical skills, but they’re also learning that they have a voice online,” he said. “They may be from a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, but they’re writing online, people are commenting on it, and they’re learning that they have a voice.”
A bit more mo’ for our cause. Go blogs! Go!
