What a Blog?

Video: Blogs in Plain English


Blogs to Review

The following Blogs are maintained by people or organizations that are dedicated to integrating the Read/Write Web and new technology tools in education. Explore the content in some these blogs and online publications to learn more about how the web is changing and how these changes can impact teaching and learning in the classroom. As you read, examine how the content is organized and take the time to read some of the comments that other people make in response to the bloggers' initial posts. Notice how the authors often include hyperlinks in their texts and think about how this form of writing differs from traditional journaling.

Wiki versus a Blog?

Web logs are great vehicles for interactive exchange of ideas between a group of people, but blogs are not as effective when a large number of people want to collaborate, contribute and easily find information on a topic.  That's when you need a wiki - “Think Outside the Blog” Article  http://www.techlearning.com/showArticle.php?articleID=175802925  



Set up your own wiki space at one of these free hosting sites or make a contribution to one of the spaces you find as you search through some of the wikis currently hosted on these servers. Looking for more information? Then check out Will Richardson Wiki on Wikis
