I have just read a WordPress new year site which said ….Why blog?
Armed with an easy question here is my new year answer (I will develop this as I read my reference on active learning in tertiary education)
- Encourages active and deep thought
- identifies the learning process
- allows thoughts to be identified
- shows the work being done
- allows references to be documented (there is more to come)
- Links into the learning process causing motivation
- Use of the virtual learning environment to augment the learning process, not to replace or better it.
- I am more likely to complete regular blogs than to write a diary.
