I want to experience a class that is run through the use of blogs.
I've been following Barbara Ganley who has used class blogs to teach writing -- creative nonfiction. She does blended learning. She models getting students involved and talking to each other. Here is one of her posts about her students' work. She is one of the most exciting teachers I have found on the web.
I want to experience the interaction, the sharing, the exploring and creativity of weaving my work with that of others. Barbara's class meets face-to-face (f2f) and online. We have the challenge of doing this creating online only.
Barbara uses class time to build trust. What does an online only group need to do to have the same kind of safety? Sylvia's post describes ways that Leigh is facilitating our class. What do we course participants need to do?
