Getting ready to start the Cert Ed group off blogging on Saturday. I don't think any of them have used one before, I may on the other hand be wrong. The idea is to get them to use it initially for reflective practice for the duration of this module and then hopefully to get them to introduce blogs to their own students (who again may already use them). This is another update of the existing module as the tools we use change each time it runs . It's exciting that the technology is developing so quickly. The assignment criteria the blogs relate to is to evaluate the use of 3 communication tools they have used with their students. 5 years ago we were looking at email, discussion groups and Netmeeting. Now - Well it's blogging, twittering and facebook perhaps. I must admit it's not something I am entirely comfortable with yet but as always I give it a go....... I'm apprehensive about keeping it updated and it not becoming static which will be a real challenge for me. Well, let's suck it and see as they say.......... I'll keep you posted how it goes.
