…that is the question.
This is my first blog post using WordPress and the purpose of this blog, in the short term, is to examine and evaluate the use of blogs to create communities of practice. Wenger is the advocate of Communities of Practice and to what extent do online blogs facilitate the emergence of a useful and effective community.
My first blog using edublogs, Sheardie’s Action Research Blog, was primarily a monologue and a self-reflective tool so I am interested to explore how we can use blogs to create “dialogue” amongst peers, to share, collaborate and LEARN.
I have really enjoyed our first session this morning and like the structure of the module. I am pleased that we are dovetailing Web2.0 technologies such as YouTube, Flickr, RSS etc. I can’t wait!
I will see blogs from a different perspective and looking forward to the bird’s eye view!
