Introductory Questions

When did you begin blogging? What were your reasons?

Has your blogging changed over this time? How? (topics, focus, frequency, etc.)

How has blogging helped you with learning?

What are the main reasons you have persisted in blogging?

How do you think your blogging activity will change in future?

Reflection/Discussion Activity:

I have categorized bloggers into various types. I have also included a podcast discussing the different types of edublogggers. What type of blogger do you think you are? What types of bloggers are many of your students? Do you think one's blogging type impacts how one provides instruction and feedback about blogging?

Blogging Activity:

You can try a berry-picking post either within your twitter account as a tweet (micro-blogging) or within your blog (for the lengthier example), and add a comment to this post with a link to your blog post or tweet.

Over the next few days, I would like to invite participants to review the suggestions for different types of blogging activities.
