5 Reasons Your Students Should Blog - 0 views

  •  
    "we have decided to use a blogging platform (Edublogs)  for student portfolios, as it can be used both as a "learning portfolio" (here is what I am learning right now) and a "showcase portfolio" (here is my best stuff).  Through my own experience both blogging, and using my blog as a portfolio, I have seen some powerful benefits of blogging that would directly benefit our students."

Live From Small Town America: Teachers Who Blog To Stay In Touch - 0 views

  •  
    "Hagan writes her own very successful blog, Math = Love, part of the Math Twitter Blogosphere, on which she says she has met wonderful friends - and her boyfriend. She says she never expected her own blog to get almost 3 million page views. It's a combination of project ideas and very cute "Things Teenagers Say." (Sample: "I'll be here all week with the pi jokes. I'm like a baker.") After learning so much from blogs herself, Hagan says, "I felt like I should give something back to the community I'd been stealing ideas from." But for her, it's about more than just exchanging ideas: "It reminds me that I'm not alone.""

Since It Can't Sue Us All, Getty Images Embraces Embedded Photos - 0 views

  •  
    Creating an embedding tool is a tacit acknowledgment that Getty simply can't police the use of its images to the four corners of the Internet. Craig Peters, a senior vice president at Getty, is more explicit about the futility of trying to maintain control of its images.

Why do academics blog? It's not for public outreach, research shows - 0 views

  •  
    "After conducting this small study we have come to think about academic blogging in two ways. Firstly, many bloggers are talking together in a kind of giant, global virtual common room. Over at one table there is a lively, even angry, conversation about working conditions in academia in different parts of the world. In a different corner another group are discussing their latest research projects and finding common themes. Another table houses a group of senior and early career academics discussing how to land a book contract and write a good CV. There is also a meeting going on about public policy, and this involves a number of public and third sector people, as well as academics, who work in the area."

Ripping out my soul for your entertainment... examining my first year of blogging. - 0 views

  •  
    "Instead of the parade you anticipated, you get the gift of FINALLY grasping the idiocy of your undertaking. You finally understand that there are roughly one billion other blogs.  And that the chances of yours being special is so microscopic as to be nonexistent. So now you have two choices: 1. You can accept defeat and go spend time with your family. 2. You can commit yourself to self-delusion. Lucky for me, I've been training in self-delusion all my life."

What's a Blog Post Worth? - 0 views

  •  
    Which ultimately does more good-an article or monograph that is read by 20 or 30 people in a very narrow field, or a blog post on a topic of interest to many (such as grading standards or tenure requirements) that is read by 200,000? What if the post spurs hundreds of comments, is debated publicly in faculty lounges and classrooms, and gets picked up by newspapers and Web sites across the country-in other words, it helps to shape the national debate over some hot-button issue? What is it worth then?

Read my blog, not my resume... - 0 views

  •  
    "Let's face it, a resume doesn't really tell you much more than the prospective candidate's background and credentials. Though this information is important, is it really the most important information you are looking for when hiring an educator you are going to charge with helping to shape the minds of children who will ultimately dictate the future of our world?"

The legitimacy and usefulness of academic blogging will shape how intellectualism develops - 0 views

  •  
    "With this poorly articulated rationale in mind, I present first, some pros and cons to citing blogs within formal academic writing. Next, I put forth three main sub-questions that I think will help us-and by "us" I mean myself and the readers who grapple with the ethical and professional questions of rigor in standards of academic sourcing-organize our thoughts. "

One year of blogging - top five lessons learned - 0 views

    I have learned a few things along the way, which in fact have improved my teaching to some extent, as I have become more understanding of the need to express some things visually. Now i encourage students to incorporate photos and videos to support their written projects - to make the project more interesting for the students, but also to inspire them to think in different ways.

How Blogging Helped Me Write My Dissertation - 1 views

    For more than two years, I have been writing blog posts on a weekly basis for the Foreign Policy Association. More than anything, what that experience has offered me is one of the greatest tools that graduate students need to complete a dissertation: confidence in their writing.

My Online PLN - 0 views

  •  
    A person's PLN is an organizational system that absorbs multitudinous sources to aggregate content to aid facility and expedience. Yet, considering the PLN as a container for diverse information modules makes me think of the compartmentalization requisite for the human brain to process new learning. Might this be why PLNs have proven themselves to be so useful and seemingly congruent with our learning styles?

10 Reasons Why I Want My Students to Blog - 1 views

  •  
    "First of all, blogging is writing, 21st-century style, plain and simple. Blogging constitutes a massive genre.  It comes in many forms, addresses myriad topics, and can certainly range in quality. For my money (which usually means free), blogging provides the best venue for teaching student writing. As bloggers, young people develop crucial skills with language, tone their critical thinking muscles, and come to understand their relationship to the world."
