Starting today, for the next seven weeks I will once again be teaching a course entitled EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom through Boise State University as a part of their Department of Educational Technology. This is the sixth 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 EDTECH537 and each entry will have “EDTECH537 -” in the entry title (note that the course number prior to 2014 was EDTECH597, so you’ll need to use that tag to see the legacy entries from those semesters).
For those who may be curious, the description for this course is:
EDTECH 537: 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.
So beginning today, I’ll post the first week’s message for my students.
