This is one of these great posts where someone takes the ideas of another arena and makes it relevant to education. Anne is giving me some relevant things to think about on the the plane to San Francisco…
OK, we have seen the educational use of weblogs increase this year but maybe we need to think a little harder about what we want to celebrate as more educators enter the arena.
It’s time for us to give students ownership. We have to be willing to take the risks of giving them a voice so we all can have a dialogue – I think that’s teaching at its best and if we don’t do this, who will?
Let’s keep building our educational community. Let’s keep finding others and keep on sharing all we are learning and thinking. We can make a difference!
I think we will get lots more educators on board if we just keep it simple. I am still in awe of how much you can do with a weblog in which students and teachers are writing, posting, thinking, creating, and responding on subjects they care about. Yep, keep it simple! It works!
Ok…c’mon…we’ve got 48 hours to pitch in and get Anne out to SF for EdBlogger…
