Constructivism & Blogs

I've been studying constructivism recently and ran across several articles that discuss how blogs, wikis and podcasts can be used as tools to turn theory into practical application. One of the most detailed is the eLearning Guild's Be Constructive: Blogs, Podcasts, and Wikis as Constructivist Learning Tools

This was an interesting read not only because of its practical pointers, but also because it adds credence to my previous rants about not using Web 2.0 tools just because they're cool. Instead, this article highlights ways to use these tools to assist learners in deliberately constructing their own learning environment.

Read it and let me know what you think!

I was not able to access the article you mentioned as I am not a member of the eLearning Guild. This sounds like a ery interesting article - so perhaps I SHOULD be a member.

Thanks for being this group to my attention.

Interesting article, Betsy! I actually thought the explanation of constructivist learning elements was a bit scattered, but the section on practical implementation was excellent! Wish I'd seen this when I was writing my "Why Blog?" series of postings!

Incidentally, Erin, eLearning Guild associate membership is free and permits access to this article as well as most other Guild resources.
