Learning with 'e's: Getting the bloggers to write

Learning with 'e's: Getting the bloggers to write | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Steve Wheeler makes a great point here!

 

"One of the perennial problems teachers face, especially in early years education, is trying to get children to write....But several schools are beginning to address this 'won't write' problem by making it entertaining and productive through the use of social media. In an article entitled Could blogging be the key to raising a generation of great writers? Liz Dwyer argues for creating audiences online for children to write for"

 

It is my view that blogging is equally useful in the HE space especially if it is incorporated into learning activities that are assessed and embedded into the course/module curriculum.

2. Making Q&A a two-way street with the backchannel

3. Monitor comprehension
