Anne Davis has a long list of points that are very relevant to all anyone who is encouraging their students to blog, or, indeed, to anyone who wants to blog for their own learning.
All points are so true, though at the moment the two that particularly strike me are:
- Blogs help learners to see knowledge as interconnected as opposed to a set of discrete facts.
- Blogs foster ownership and choice. They help lead us away from students trying to find what the teacher wants in terms of an answer.
