Blogging in the classroom


Just attended an interesting presentation on the use of blogs by professors. Presenter was Jessica Lipnack from netage.com who described the history of blogging and new media and gave an example of Prof Andy McAfee from Harvard Business School who has fully engaged his students thru the planned use of blogs. Most of the dinosaurs in the faculty were grasping for handholds on the concept. Few had ever heard of LinkedIn, Facebook or social mnedia. Fewer still had started blogging, although the requirement to have our students blog during the course of the year is well-established. We are staffed by grumpy old men. Help is on the way though, like drops of water gathering.
