2008-04-14 21:19:47 [Message]kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: I've recently seen ajust a very FEW admins(principals) using blogs effectively...

 

2008-04-14 21:20:13 [Message]jaybennett -> -EdTechTalk: exposed to what?

 

2008-04-14 21:20:20 [Message]kmulford -> -EdTechTalk: A blog doesn' "require" a response....

 

2008-04-14 21:20:23 [Message]LindaNitsche -> -EdTechTalk: Blogging is interactive with a community whilejournaling is a personal reflection without any other audience

2008-04-14 21:21:15 [Message]kwhobbes -> -EdTechTalk: @kmulford, what do you mean by"effectively"

 

2008-04-14 21:21:20 [Message]penross -> -EdTechTalk: too often we are placing our ideas on"privacy" and "value" and not the next generations values

 

2008-04-14 21:21:33 [Message]PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @kmulford-that is so true but there is an expectationof 2-way communication on a blog--even though it's fine to just read it

 

2008-04-14 21:21:39 [Message]derrallg -> -EdTechTalk: @kwhobbes was wondering if you were going torespond :)

 

2008-04-14 21:21:54 [Message]LindaNitsche -> -EdTechTalk: Blogging enables us to learn from one another.

 

2008-04-14 21:22:12 [Message]cindyseibel -> -EdTechTalk: blogging connects with an authentic audience

 

2008-04-14 21:22:26 [Message]Harold -> -EdTechTalk: Blogging is getting other perspectives and ideas thatare different than "we speak"

 

2008-04-14 21:22:40 [Message]Durff -> -EdTechTalk: 7th grader telling me what i ought to be doing

 

2008-04-14 21:22:43 [Message]lparisi -> -EdTechTalk: Blogging also, very simply, makes writing practicemore enticing, therefore children are more willing to do it.
