Jonathan Briggs on what an educational blog is

I went from this at Samizdata to this at tBBC, to a comment on this, to this blog, and to this posting there.


What is an educational blog?

- An additional communication channel between teacher and learner
- A searchable archive of notes and handouts including downloadable worksheets and documents
- Signpost learners to additional resources
- Support questioning and discussion
- Provide a channel for comment, criticism and evaluation
- Open the teaching and learning process publicly to other interested parties

which sounds, in a way, pretty old school to me. Which just might be the point.

Thanks for linking. You are right. This was pretty old school but I didn't want to frighten the horses. I think the effect of using blogging as a teacher is actually much more radical. Firstly it can open up all your material, your discussions and your signposting to other teachers and learners and secondly it breaks down the barriers between subjects, courses and cohorts.
