"Blog" is an abbreviated version of "weblog," which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.
A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites, usually presented as a list of entries in reverse chronological order. Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects.
GM: Blogs can also get used by educators to share their knowledge...
Way back in 1963 I started out on my career as a teacher of Design and Technology. I have always been a 'problem solver' and thus when computers first arrived on the education scene, in about 1980, I was one of the first to see how computing could make life easier for both teachers and pupils. And this has been my mission ever since!
With more applicants than there are jobs, employers can be very picky. When you apply for a job, your resume is likely to be one of hundreds the employer has received - all with similar intellectual and experiential qualifications.
Over the past few weeks, my work-life balance has shifted slightly in home’s favour, which has been lovely. Having time off from work and spending more time with my family has been fantastic. As you would expect, my children have been a huge part of this home time and most days I am struck by how the things that they are learning and the way that they interact with each other provide me with lots of opportunity for reflection for both home and work, which I wanted to share.
The Yale School of Music, Music in Schools Initiative has made a difference all over the region - over 110 events and programs at 56 area locations - with concerts, teaching artists, educational programs and more, at elementary schools, high schools, colleges, community centers, libraries, conferences and festival events both near and far from Yale.
Writers take words seriously - perhaps the last professional class that does - and they struggle to steer their own through the crosswinds of meddling editors and careless typesetters and obtuse and malevolent reviewers into the lap of the ideal reader.
[Not quite an ePortfolio as I would describe Todd's presentation, but an altogether excellent presentation (speaking as an ex-teacher of Design & Technology) which should be a significant part of his whole ePortfolio - RT]
Welcome to my dental hygiene ePortfolio. This portfolio is a representation of my growth and progression towards becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist.

I have learned a tremendous amount over the past two years and have gained valuable experiences that have helped me become a competent and proficient dental hygienist.

Is it an ePortfolio? Is it a blog? Is it a blatant example of a lecturer trying to sell his books? Whatever you may think of Christopher Long's methods, he broadcasts a profound message concerning 'The Gutenberg Parenthesis'. How the ePortfolio can best exploit this new 'parallel universe' is the question that comes to my mind.
My ePortfolio highlights my greatest academic work and accomplishments since I began as a student here in the fall of 2009. It reflects my growth as both a student and as a business professional over the past two years and displays my goals and dreams for the rest of my college career until graduation.
