Bloggers Keep Teachers, Students Informed On Education Topics

Unattributed, MiddleSchoolWorld, Aug 02, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Article introducing people who are bcoming known as experts via their blogs, for example, Joanne Jacobs, "Considered in cyberspace as the 'education blogmother.'" Jacobs is a good read; see this post on teaching to the test: "Students have little time to write anything but BCRs: They may write about plays but they don't act them out, much less try to write their own. They don't read chapter books and rarely go beyond the literal interpretation of what they've read." Also listed are Sean of EFL Geek and Matthew K. Tabor. I am long past being surprised to find clusters of bloggers like this; it is the internet distributing conversations the way it should.
