Why Blogging Is Key to the Future of Higher Ed

An interesting article on using blogs and other social media in the classroom and getting students connected with not only their fellow classmates but other disciplines as well.  To quote from the article (click the title to read the entire article)

“The technology will not only help students to make connections about what they’re learning, but will also function as an e-portfolio, documenting their work. In turn, administrators hope this will lead to an institution-wide cultural change, as students do more of their work on public platforms, work collaboratively with each other and respond to each other’s work online and with digital tools.”

I know some of you are using blogs why not share your experiences with us!
