By this point I’m sure you’ve noticed all the changes that the DEN has made to their online community. One of those changes is DEN’s new blog engine. Now the state blogs and your personal DEN blogs have the power of WordPress behind them. Please keep your eye open for webinars provided by our resident blog expert Steve Dembo. He will be providing training to get you started with your own personal blog.
When I stop and think about how technology has truly changed our society I am in awe. Blogs were at the forefront of the Web 2.0 movement, but have taken a back seat to some newer Web 2.0 tools. This post got me thinking about blogs and how they’ve changed how we view information. You can find a blog on just about anything. Go to Google Blog Search and see what happens. Last post 3 hours ago, 1 hour ago, 5 minutes ago. Information is essentially being generated 24 hours a day.
The point of my rambling is this, with so much content being generated how do you find the good stuff? There’s never enough time to find it and evaluate it. So I’m turning to you all. Do you have a some great educational blogs that you just can’t live without? Do you have examples of student generated blogs that we should see? If so, please share them with us via the comments section. I’ll get us started with a few of my favorites below and if you are like me and need all of your blogs in one spot, check out Bloglines. Bloglines is a blog aggregator where you can read all of your blogs in one place. It has definitely made my life easier.
