  • What is publishing?
  •  
    • Creating a context …. how publishing is changing
    • Creating an argument …. why we might consider this important
    • Putting it into practice …what are some easy entry points
  •  
    • Some media observers now contend the "Blogosphere" is rapidly replacing CBS and the rest of the mainstream media. Even New York Times best-selling author Hugh Hewitt calls his latest book, "Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation That is Changing Your World."

  • Comments … the benefit was being able to plug into the mind of a very sharp teenager and connect on a professional level across generational lines. I witnessed the evolution of her thought processes and writing skills as she dealt with feedback. Blogs allow a teacher to literally take their kids out into the world from classrooms anywhere in America. I’d do it again in a heartbeat Scott Higham Pulitzer Prize journalist
  • Not all it’s cracked up to be
  • Digital Natives….the misconception
  • Students are already publishing… but most of it is lousy
  • Students know how to entertain themselves…. But do they know how to educate themselves
  • Unique Interests
  •  
  • Good things can happen
  • I know some folks will fail to see the relevance in this , and will talk about standards and curriculum and mandated testing. But I guess I don’t see how this could be any more relevant - this is life in the 21st century (ironically demonstrated by very non-21st century water buffalo cultivation). This is 12 days from problem to solution , and 24 days from problem to Internet-viral-movie-extended solution that may impact hundreds or thousands. Shouldn’t we be teaching kids about this stuff ? Can’t we address the curriculum and standards in ways like this? Shouldn’t we be helping prepare them to be really good at using these tools in both their professional and personal lives to impact the world around them? Shouldn’t we be helping prepare our students to change the world? Karl fisch
