getting there

Have enjoyed the course and learned a lot about blogging. Still feel a bit overwhelmed and need to continue if I want to learn more and really use this when I start teaching again. It still remains a challenge for me to stay in front of the computer with summer coming and the many actitivities to do outside. I was like a little child when I received a comment from a fellow member and read their messages. Thank you to those who took the time to read and comment. A bit thank you to Illya and Jennifer for all of their hard work and really quick answers to questions:) I can imagine the positive aspects of using a blog with a class as it allows the students to communicate with each other when they have time, outside of the classroom and allows them to reflect on their posts or their comments. In class, they must answer right away (sometimes). Of course there are many other uses of blogs but this is the first that came to mind:)


  1. I wish you all the best with your blogging and am sure many more ideas will come to mind!
    It was a pleasure to have you with us on the course :-)

  2. Hi Dan
    Just had a peak at 'The Social Poets'. Some very poignant material on BP. Satirical cartoons like that are great for generating discussions in class. I like the way you've arranged your widgets here. Congratulations.
