help me sell blogging to educators
I've been contacted by a local reporter to talk about blogging as an educational tool. If you've got some suggested talking points, I'd be happy to hear them, ASAP!!!!
Off the top of my head, I'll emphasize writing for public consumption and collaboration; teaching writing in environments that students may write in on their own, more authentic pedagogies that fit what students will do outside the classroom, technological literacy at various levels so as to empower students socially, politically and functionally; and I'm not sure what else. Suggestions? Please?
