Blogging is not necessarily to every ones taste, but is certainly one way that people are communicating and learning.
Blogging was originally the domain of net-geeks and technically-capable programmers and developers in the late-1990’s, and is from the term “web-log” (now ‘blog’).
But this is not about blogging, or about learning about blogging, rather this is about learning and I am merely using a blog as the ‘tool’. As a graduate from University in 1996 I was fortunate to have the growing Internet at my disposal for research and referencing, yet current students and learners have so much more available that wasn’t available for me; Google, eBooks, eJournals, Web 2.0, etc, etc.
Does this make it better or easier for them to learn? Probably not. It just means there is so much more available, possibly more inappropriate than I had to deal with 12+ years ago, and they have to read and sift through all this before they get to the relevant and appropriate content.
