Potential Power of Blogging for Pedagogy

Potential Power of Blogging for Pedagogy | Metawriting | Scoop.it
I believe in the potential power of blogging. I believe it can be harnessed to be a powerful pedagogical tool in the 21st Century.

 

4 Benefits of Integrating Blogging into Pedagogy

1. Blogs promote participation and collaboration of knowledge and skills. There are a myriad of resources available on the internet that can help students become creators, and not merely consumers of different texts and bodies of knowledge.

 

2. Blogs promote global communication and collaboration. Teachers can facilitate interactions with diverse cultures, ethnicities, and religions, and social contexts. Students can be helped to challenging their thinking by considering other viewpoints.

 

3. Blogs promote the critical analysis of pedagogy and literacies.

 

4. Blogs create the potential for interactive spaces for authentic exchanges. Strategies including reading logs, book reviews, parental communication, encouraging reading and writing and responding around a particular theme or focus.

If we can harness this power, we have a strong pedagogical tool on our hands. As with other areas in education, we can begin to harness this power by asking ourselves the right kinds of questions that can bring about the results we want to see.

Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration & Reading

Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration & Reading | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Learn about WICR, or Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration & Reading. This is the basis of AVID, but can be used in every classroom, as these are skills students need to learn for academic success.

3 Excellent Real Time Collaborative Whiteboard Tools for Teachers

3 Excellent Real Time Collaborative Whiteboard Tools for Teachers | Metawriting | Scoop.it

There are several reasons why you would be thinking to use collaborative white boards in your classroom . As a teacher, you can use these collaborative web tools to explain abstract hard to grasp concepts to your students through  diagrams, illustrative drawings, mindmaps...etc .

 

You can also use them to get students working collaboratively on a classroom project.The cool thing about these collaborative whiteboard tools is that they are web-based and therefore do not require any software installation and you can access them anywhere with internet connection. Here are three new tools I recommend for you today, check them out below and share with us what you think of them.

Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work...

 

Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do.

 

That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

I like the image with two students have a conversation without a screen. It can be done with digital technology, but the tried and true is good for students. It humanizes the other in what is often a virtual world.

Epict Italia's curator insight, January 23, 2014 5:00 AM

Idee da prendere:

1) le categorie proposte per il peer review (utilizziamole!!) - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3Mx1_-3IZ7tRXkzMm8zM2dvZE0/edit?pli=1 

2) le categorie usate per valutare il lavoro di podcasting dei ragazzi: dice l'autore "bisognava valutare una pluralità di abilità/competenze" . proprio quello che dobbiamo fare anche nella nostra scuola italiana./https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hnzI9r6NNwhLDv-LHV0yb72CK5C6d3-xt_k_5zfpuDI/edit?pli=1

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 23, 2014 4:37 PM

"John Dewey believed that education must be " . . . a process of living and not a preparation for future living." This powerful idea is a helpful reminder of the rich, insightful growth and knowledge that can come from deep, collaborative learning experiences."

Therefore, it could be said true learning is about acting out the theory, of rhetoric and reality remaining close, of adults modelling for young people appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours, as those young people, if forced to choose, will copy what you do rather than do what you say!

Mission Critical: Championing-Empowering-Enabling Our Individual And Organizational Ability To Win

Mission Critical: Championing-Empowering-Enabling Our Individual And Organizational Ability To Win | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Change is not the obstacle, it is the answer.  Embracing our ability to champion positive change starts with a focus on the words we use.  Change is NOT difficult, it is our greatest power and hope for a better future.  Change is what our bodies and minds so every second of the day.

 

Our ability to move out of Jurassic Park by developing our individual and organization potential is real.  It requires focus, courage, integrity and a relentless desire to be part of the solution rather than running on overdrive, getting stuck in stasis or burying one’s head in the sand or under the rock of complacency.
