Over the next three weeks students in READ 6308 will be sharing their insights, explorations, and knowledge related to reading and literacy. One aspect of this course involves thinking about how 21st Century literacies and Web 2.0 will impact literacy learning in the Rio Grande Valley and the United States. To facilitate this, students are required to explore wikis, social networks, video sharing, photo sharing, virtual reality…and blogs. For this assignment, I am asking students to write and share a blog post so they get a taste of what blogging can be. There is no assigned topic other than literacy, so I expect there will be an interesting variety of contributions.
Please feel free to comment on any of the posts!
