EDTECH597 – Blogging In The Classroom

For the next eight weeks, I will be teaching a course entitled EDTECH597 – Blogging In The Classroom through Boise State University as a part of their Department of Educational Technology. This is the third time I have taught the course. During this period I will continue to maintain this blog as I always do, but I will also use this space as a part of the course as well – as a way to model blogging in education.

As I blog for this course I will use the tag EDTECH597 and each entry will have “EDTECH597 -” in the entry title.

For those who may be curious, the description (and a link to the syllabus) for this course is:

EDTECH 597: Blogging in the Classroom
Focuses on the use of blogs in education, including creating and maintaining blogs, using RSS readers and microblogging. Students will examine the nature and purpose of blogging, types of blog entries, blog promotion, disclosure guidelines, and building a blogging community.

In about two hours, I’ll post the first week’s message for my students.
