Community Forum @ Edublogosphere Issues, Options, & Norms
April 27, 2007
There have been some heated Edublog postings recently (links below) concerning the virtues and pitfalls of different methods for facilitating community development and discussion within the Edublogospere. This is a 'community forum' discussion that addressed some of these questions:
- How can the edublogging community best help educators keep up with the steady torrent of new educational tools, methods, and resources?
- What are the relative merits of blogging independently vs. being affiliated with a particular social network?
- How do we balance self-promotion and commercial interests with our participation in projects for the common good?
- What, if any, expectations are there for 'professional decorum' in edublogging?
