In a recent blog post, I gave seven reasons why teachers should blog. It was subsequently expanded to 10 good reasons by the contributions from readers - which is actually an eleventh reason why teachers should blog - you get back such great comments, suggestions, arguments and advice, it would be crazy not to share your content. Evernote is a great tool for that purpose.

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

We decided to set up an ad-hoc social learning environment mostly using freely available tools. We decided to outline our curriculum in a skeletal form using a blog, and then set social interactions in the curriculum context.

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

This week is about blogging. just think its time to take a look at blogging again since I, and others from what I hear, seem to be neglecting blogs, feed readers, etc, in favor of microblogging. I'm hoping to crank out at least 2 or 3 blog posts before Friday because I'll be headed to the Blogworld & New Media Expo in Vegas. But that's not blogging. Coming up.

Blogs and RSS as Learning Tools

eLearning Weekly

Many of us techies have been using RSS for years, and you may even run your own blog. Blogs can also be a fantastic way to record your progress on projects, take notes, share findings, etc. What are some of the obstacles we face in using blogs and RSS readers at our organizations? First, blogs and RSS don’t get much respect in the enterprise. Now, I know many companies have executives and employees who blog regularly, but this is still more of the exception than the rule. Second, users are either hesitant or scared to use new tools like an RSS reader.

June’s BQ is… “what tools should we learn?&#. When I think about the tools, I always come back to the fact that they are all just typing, so that is the critical thing to learn (but even that will be obsolete someday).  Screencasting tool ( Jing ) – this medium is visual, so get visual. Many great uses – it’s a gadget, not a tool (or is it?).

The Sporatic Blogger

In the Middle of the Curve

Don't worry - there's lots of material brewing in the next few weeks. - A lot of my free time has been spent repurposing a blogging tool for my nefarious purposes. Project Management Tools. That wasn't interesting enough to write about, but if someone wants my 2 cents on how to create one of these monsters for a software application I'll be happy to write something up. I know I've been sporatic lately. I'm almost ready to unleash it on the world and give instructions how I did it. I'll discuss it at length once I get past one final hurdle to progress.

WHAT It is Friday night, and after a long week of work and thinking (about the future), I am going to have some fun using my imagination to predict the future evolution of the blog (in a light sense). While you require time and effort to maintain a blog (many never reach the second post), you can't say that of micro-blogging. So, what comes after Twitter or micro-blogging?

Experiencing eLearning

Principles for assessing online discussions and other conversations (blogs, chat, etc.) by coherence, awareness of audience, and diction. Writing for asynchronous discussion isn’t the same as writing an essay, and the author argues that students who simply post essays to the discussion board should receive good grades. “The animation is a way of them developing the picture so they relate that to the writing, to what they hear, what they see, what they feel.&# Tool for liveblogging that is actually live–it works like typing an instant message.

Re-orientation

Jay Cross

Once I was a whiz with an excellent drawing tool; now I am a scribbler on six different drawing tools. It pleases me to think of all of the passing information, entertainment, notifications, tweets, blogs, magazines, newspapers, and so on as a never-ending stream. Links take me to my blogs, tools, events, clocks, clubs, and communities. My home page links to my public-facing material: blogs, videos, Flickr, SlideShare, popular articles, several communities, free chapters from Informal Learning, and so on. The Search section has a few specialty tools.
