I wanted to blog about the idea of having my students contribute to the classroom blogs. A friend suggested it and in doing so made me think a lot about the use of a blog in a class and what it is for. Would this add to the work for students? Would it be helpful so they can process through what we did in class? How about having them take turns posting the review of the day and then other students can check and comment if there is something that doesn’t quite sit right for them. Not sure how this might work. I am really sensitive to making this tech thing more work, making class focus bedifferent than the material we have to get to, and disengaging the students as oppose to engaging them like I want to. Change is slow (right?), but what I find particularly at odds is nowadays change is rather quick and we are slow to catch up. I will ponder this idea more with the student/blog thing, but would love to hear what you think about it. I am on the fence.
