EDTECH537 – Week 3

Today begins week three of my EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom course. The students this week have a series of blog entries that they have to complete by the end of the week (i.e., midnight on Sunday).

  • to post a links entry to their blog (i.e., Links Entries are simply entries that provide a list of links. They can be thematic in nature or they can be a random set of links that are published every so often or at specific times. Some bloggers have even set-up their Delicious or Diigo accounts to summarize all of their links for the past week in an entry on their blog.)
  • to post a list entry to their blog (i.e., List Entries are simply entries that provide lists of things. A list of links could be described as a list of things, hence the overlap in these kinds of entries. Personally, I see List Entries as lists of non-web-based things. Some bloggers will provide lists of books or articles they would recommend or the top # of apps for some mobile device or their # favourite movies. The list can be about anything at all really.)
  • to post a discussion question entry to their blog (i.e., Discussion Question Entries are exactly as they sound, entries designed to generate discussion. Typically they are self-contained and have a short introduction to give the reader some context and then attempt to pose an open-ended question. Some bloggers will base their discussion question on something they have read or a current event. The main thing to remember about a discussion question entry is that it is designed to generate conversation among the readers of your blog.)

The readings for the students this week include:

The final thing I have asked them to do is to continue using Twitter throughout the week, and to use the hashtag #EDTECH537 for all class related tweets.

Later today I will be post an example of a links entry, tomorrow I will post an example of a list entry, and on Wednesday I will post an example of a discussion question entry.
