Transcript

  • 1. Some delicious blogging for IBL
  • 2. What I did
    • Used 2 freely available packages to
      • encourage students to record and share their work outside of class
      • enable me to make the seminars relevant to the work that the students had done and their interests
    • Sites
      • http://del.icio.us/paganschristiansheretics
        • Add websites to a list of favourites on your own webpage and ‘tag’ them with keywords
        • Can include articles on sites such as jstor or behind password protected sites
      • http:// paganschristiansheretics.wordpress.com /
  • 3. Context – the course
    • 2 seminar groups on 1 st year History core module
    • 1 hour per week
    • Oral presentations and contributions assessed
  • 4. What happened
    • I set up a del.icio.us site for the students and I to use
    • Each week, for homework the students were asked to select 3 websites to be added to the list
    • They were to provide a short description of the site that they had chosen and tag the site with a number of descriptive keywords
    • I did the same
  • 5. What happened - 2
    • I also created a course blog, to which I asked the students to post a weekly question arising from their preparatory readings = inquiry?
    • I read the blog and del.icio.us site each week and used then as a basis for preparing the coming seminar
    • Experimentation occurred
  • 6. Reflections - good
    • It’s easy
    • Most of the students have engaged with it
    • Some students have engaged with it very consistently
    • Allowed me to make seminars relevant to the work that the students had done – e.g. sources we look at/ questions we address
    • Really interesting to be able to chart what the students are doing/ what they think of the websites
    • The students seem to like it
  • 7. Reflections - bad
    • Some students haven’t engaged with it
    • Some students have engaged with it in passing
    • Tension between direction/ modifying student use of the internet
    • Is this inquiry?
    • Repetitive?
    • Will they do it without chasing?
