  •  
    An example of the "mother blog" concept in an implementation of student blogging in the residential honors college at Virginia Tech. (Posts from all student blogs are aggregated on this blog as well as links to the blogs/comments themselves.) Some stunning examples of student blogs. Particularly see the blog "Catching Up."

  • Pointing students to data buckets and conduits we've already made for them won't do. Templates and training wheels may be necessary for a while, but by the time students get to college, those aids all too regularly turn into hindrances. For students who have relied on these aids, the freedom to explore and create is the last thing on their minds, so deeply has it been discouraged. Many students simply want to know what their professors want and how to give that to them.

      This is why the gradual release of responsibility is so important at all levels of education. While some meta-responsibilities need to be unloaded onto the learner at a very young age (scheduling and structuring work time, note taking, reflection, etc.), other tasks and scripts for learning within the context of a specific discipline can be scaffolded and then released to the learner throughout K-12.
