Is this any good? Blogging Rubrics

October 5, 2011

Blogging. It can send spine tingling sensations up the back of many o’ teacher, parent and oh of course admin. What is a BLOG? Why do we need it? How do we use it? We need more investigations as to why we need it here. Excellent, valid questions that need to be asked. After learning that a blog is a conduit for sharing, collaborating, learning and reflecting, we realise the necessity of such tool in our learning community. We can get down to thinking about ‘ what makes a ‘good’ blog? Andrew Churches @achurches has an excellent blogging rubric on journal blogs. How can we get our learners to create decent blogs? In Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy, he emphasizes blogs as reflective practice rather than a personal ‘diary’ Its all about learning, sharing and collaboration. Check out his exemplar levels.

Learn, enjoy, enjoy, learn

    We are experimenting with “blog-folios”- a combination of journal blog (which the kids really enjoy and gives them freedom to write about what they wish) and portfolios, the reflective practice. I am blogging about it now!
