Just this morning, I also watched Alex Halavias’ video on “the learning blogosphere” where he also noted the How-To/DIY trend being a natural component of the blogging culture. I’d encourage everyone to watch it, not because I’m in it [yeah yeah], but because Alex speaks with the wisdom of history to back up his points on pedagogy in blogs. I’ve told him to YouTube it which he just did. Alternatively, you can download it as .mov or wmv. from his blog.
Oh yeah, watch carefully and you’ll discover why students are not hamburgers (seriously).
