I’m starting up a few blogs at work and thought I’d share the links here in case you’re interested:
- A blog on educational technology, for librarians (and hopefully faculty) who are interested in how educational technology can be appropriately used to enhance learning in their classes. I started this ages ago, and only made one post, so I’m probably just going to clear it out and start over.
- A blog on emerging technology, for the WFU community, discussing new and emerging technologies (and some older-but-neglected ones). There will be a corresponding wiki to provide an encyclopedic resource, based on the blog content.
- A blog for a class on teaching-that I’m working on with a colleague-for library staff. This blog is more like a content management system for the “class” and will serve as an example of how a blog can essentially be an easy-to-edit website.
Before I start marketing these blogs, I need content, so I’m going to start chipping away at that now, starting with new tech.
