Task 5 Reflecting on Blogging

Posted: November 22, 2012 in blog

I began my blogging in August 2008 prompt by the potential education uses outlined by advocates such as Janet Hart. Reviewing my first blog I remember it was also a side swipe and an outlet for my frustration against the establisment. The content was limited but the comments still ring true “Hi, found a great video that should be played to all those short sighted managers and heads of faculties who can’t see the benefit of e-learning in todays learning environment.”  Despite my best effort things still remain very much the same C’est La Vie.

I have tried to incorporate Blogging into my teaching  by also creating an off shoot Blog called Terra Scientia pitched at Earth Sciences  to provide extension for my A level and GCSE Students, some whom I believe have actually viewed it. The most common comment being we know what Terra Scientia means….(Earth Science if you didnt).

So being a scientist I tend to use it as a tool for passing on knowledge rather than reflection and the odd occasion of blatantly pushing my latest manual.

So all in all I wish I used it more regular with my students or should I say “I wish more of my students created their own” (I have a few whom have), and anyway being use to kopping the blame its probably my fault that more of my students don’t blog.

Reflection over.

Getting your blog retweeted

Having someone Tweet your blog can be rewarding, to help with this process a simple and convenient way is by using TweetMeme Button , and by just copying and pasting the provided codes.
The Retweet button is for website and blog publishers that want to encourage their audience to retweet their content on twitter.
With one simple piece of JavaScript this will give you up to date tweet counts and shorten your title and link for the retweets. Best of all it will work on any web page, anywhere!

The second reason for this blog is to test out Apture a really cool little app that helps you to create links and incorporate multimedia into a dynamic layer into your pages.

I pose this question:-

What is the most important issue in e-learning?
