‘Many if the characteristics which would be frowned upon in scholarly articles, such as subjectivity, humour, and personal opinion, are vital elements in developing a dialogue in blogs’. Weller (2011)
I had another stab at this (did one yesterday on the fly). This one I’ve given a bit more thought as I am keen to promote the idea of blogging to colleagues; the more the merrier to me.
It goes under the title ‘User Generate Content’.
I do wonder though if it isn’t a mindset, that I’d have the same issues getting people to take up drawing or singing.
You either do or don’t?
I realise that to get this right in the learning context you must define who the learner is and put it in context.
- Why do you blog?
- If you’ve just started will you keep going?
- What’s the incentive?
- Do you have an external blog too?
