Weblogging ED-P 790 Summer 2007 Leanna Madill
What is a weblog? A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where entries are written in chronological order and commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.portmanteauchronological order http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weblog
What is a weblog? Blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketchblog, videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting) or sexual in nature (Adult blog), and are part of a wider network of social media.online diariesartartlogphotographsphotoblogsketchblogvideosvlogmusicMP3 blog audiopodcastingsexual in nature (Adult blog)social media http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weblog
Purpose of a Webblog in a teacher education course: Enable students to create a professional community of colleagues. Enable students to value the knowledge and experience from each other, instead of one instructor. Enable students to receive feedback on their issues from more than one person. Enable students to become more comfortable with technology and see webblogs as a potential form of communication for their own classrooms. Enables the course instructor to gain insight into what concerns and issues need to be addressed with this particular group of students.

Need to know This communication format requires you to be brief, succinct, and thoughtful about a topic. You are encouraged to create links and add photos to engage your readers and use this communication tool to its full potential.
Need to know Be patient with the technology and yourself – this is a new form of communication for many of you and can be intimidating for some to put their ideas out in written form to their colleagues. (remember how your students will feel when they are asked to participate in some aspect of your class that they are uncomfortable with)
Need to know This blog is available to be read online – which means that others who find this blog can read what you have said. Since you are participating in a professional discussion, this should not concern you. They also can not write in the blog as they are not an invited member. For your e-portfolios, you can add a link within your e-portfolio to show your participation and growth in a professional discussion about educational issues.
Posts vs. Comments
Post vs. Comments –You can create Post or a Comment – both are as valuable as the other. –If you feel like you never want to respond to the posts created – then create your own post.
Hints –After you create a Post or Comment and it doesn’t show up – press the “REFRESH” button at the top of the screen in the tool bar. –You only have to read and respond when the need strikes you – but don’t leave all your contributions until the end because then you have not participated in an ongoing professional topic. –Keep your topics relevant to education, at least in a broad, general sense.
