Final Paper Resources


The topic of my final paper is on weblogs in education.

These are some of the electronic resources that I will use during my research for the final paper along other resources marked with de.li.ci.ous tags of "blogs 240131g bruxvoort"

Educational Blogs and Wikis

My 2 Cents Worth: http://davidwarlick.com/2cents/ - David Warlick's blog on teaching and learning in the new information landscape. I'd like to read his book on Classroom Blogging sometime.

SupportBlogging.com is a wiki that promotes an understanding of educational blogging.

A Web of Connections: Why the Read/Write Web Changes Everything is a wiki made up of Will Richardson's resources. WIll Richardson wrote the book Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms. His blog also contains a wealth of resources and is called weblog-ed.com

Footprints in the Digital Age - article by WIll Richardson on giving students ownership of learning, being "google-able" and ideas to begin building a personal learning network, beginning with reading blogs related to your passion.
