Glenn Groulx, a student in our Masters of Distance Education programming, has been doing significant work on EduBlogging. He presented at a CIDER session last month (recording here and Powerpoints here) where he outlined a set of metaphors that helps us recognize and appreciate the different types of blogs and motivations of bloggers in educational contexts.
Most recently he has also done a series of two podcasts with graphics on Field blogging – blogging where and whenever the occasion is right. These postings will help newcomers get a handle on both blogs and podcasts as very inexpensive ways for learners and teachers to express themselves digitally and gain network presence.
Thanks for this work Glenn- much appreciated.
