Note: I will use this blog post to support a presentation I’m doing for my EDUC638 class on October 19, 2010. It might or might nor be of interest to my regular audience. Short URL to this post: http://bit.ly/EDUC638-blogswikis
For those who don’t know yet, I’ve finally decided to start using my fee waivers and enrolled in EDUC638 Learning Technology Across The Curriculum. As a part of my coursework, I have to present on the topic of blogs and wikis, and how to use them in education.
I have always felt weird that blogs and wikis are bunched together all the time. In my opinion, they are completely different technologies. My presentation will address that, and go beyond the traditional notion of blogs and wikis to explore other online writing technologies and context.
