Blogtalk Downunder

My slides

Filed under: General — marcus @ 10:01 pm

It’s been a great day at Blogtalk DU. Lots of stimulating papers. As I said at the begining of my talk what really struck me was the notion of emerging contiuums of blogging practice and the tensions that emerge at the polar ends of these spectrums: the utopic on the one hand and the pragmatic on the other; the professional and the amateur; the intensely personal to the intensely networked; enthusiasms and disapointments; visionary early adopters moving into the first stream of mainstreamers. This is part of the emergent field. These are the creative tensions that we work with.

Look forward to more discussion tomorrow.

My Powerpoint

  1. Hi Mark - As I was reading your Powerpoint slides. I found them very interesting. I don;t know much about blogging. I am an adult educator who as a recent student used some online computer mediated technology for teaching/learning. I was wondering if you think students in academic degree programs should learn to blog (develop a blog or contribute/participate in a blog) as part of their course work.
    If students should learn blogging at what level should this occur - undergraduate, post-grad level or higher?

    Has research been done on the efficacy of using blogging as a teaching/learning tool and if so what were any results? Do you think blogging can and/or should be used as a teaching/learning tool?

    I hope to hear from you.
