To Blog or Not to Blogjanetech

Mon, 14 Jan 2008 14:49:10 +0000

What makes blogs increasingly attractive to the more than 50 million people who’ve started them, or unattractive to the people who not only haven’t started one but wouldn’t read one if it were the last printed (virtually speaking, that is) word on the planet? Which are you? And what are your thoughts? What use can […]

Another piece of Web 2.0 “stuff,” this site lets you put your bookmarks online so you can find them from any computer (neat if you travel without your own laptop or suddenly find yourself giving a presentation on a strange computer in a strange place). It also allows you to share those bookmarks with a […]

Wikis and Usjanetech

Tue, 27 Feb 2007 16:27:26 +0000

Students use Wikipedia for their research. Some professors at universities have sought to ban its use, but they’ve picked the wrong fight. A better strategy seems to be letting students use Wikipedia to find primary sources (most articles list bibliographic references), almost like they’d use a card catalogue.  I think the more creative use of […]

What’s Wikipedia?janetech

Wikis  People under forty may be too young to remember a shelf in their parents’ home groaning under the weight of large, imposing volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica. A revered shelf, but a scary one. With deep purple and black bindings, script etched in what looked like gold, the books were imposing, heavy and difficult […]

The What & Why of Podcastingjanetech

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 17:56:53 +0000

I seldom watch talking heads on TV, and I don’t listen to talk radio (or didn’t until Andy happened into my life). Whenever I’ve try to listen to a book on tape, I zone out and then spend time having to rewind to the precise spot where my concentration faltered. I’ve decided that it must […]

How To Podcastjanetech

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 17:52:24 +0000

The Beatles said “All You Need is Love.” You need a little bit more for a podcast but not much. At most, you need a computer, a headset with a microphone, software to “massage” your podcast into shape, and a place to “put” the podcast so it’s up on the web and available to be […]

Shall We Blog?janetech

Thu, 18 Jan 2007 19:48:57 +0000

Hard to say. A blog suggests itself for any class where students keep journals or are asked to “respond” to prompts—books, movies, etc. Why not keep the journals online as a blog, where the student other students and the teacher can make comments. I am also thinking that blogs might be useful in language classes […]

Since I started looking at blogs so I could write about them, I have been struck not only by how many of them there are but the variety of topics covered. Some blogs are personal journals, and the authors may mention a book or movie. If the authors “tags” that information, the search engine that […]

What’s a Blog?janetech

Thu, 18 Jan 2007 16:34:48 +0000

A blog is a diary, just not the kind one used to put under the mattress, hidden from the prying eyes of parents. Online blogs are, actually, meant to be read. Or at least not meant NOT to be read. I am not sure all bloggers care of their blogs are read or not. For […]

Hello world!janetech

Tue, 09 Jan 2007 16:20:47 +0000

WELCOME to my blog. I am hoping this space becomes a place for us to carry on some conversations about the use of Web 2.0 technology that might further the educational objectives of our classes. Since blogging is one of the most popular elements of the new, more interactive web, I thought this might be […]
