I actually finished marking Saturday, but didn’t have all my e-mails at home to check those who had difficulties with comments, so had to wait until this morning to make sure you got proper credit.
Great blogs again with the following notable reads: Emma, Natalie, Eleanor, Becca, Jack, Jan-David, Emily, Lisa, Josh, Sophie W., and Liam.
Of particular note is Liam’s because one of the comments made. Nutty professor (or something like that) reblogged and commented. Go have a look at the comments on their blog regarding Liam’s work. I think all of you can smile at that one.
One area that I think some of you can look at is tying your blogs together. Often I read about a reference to a previous week, or one of your classmates blogs, and there are no links – this is what makes blogging powerful. Give your reader a link to the work you are referring to.
A second area, that is related in my mind (however twisted that may be) is the inclusion of pictures and quotes. During your talks, I see a lot of thought provoking quotes and pictures used to make a point. Because of the nature of blogging as a media, you can do that here as well.
A final point, where I dis see some great examples this week, was around debating. In a few places, I saw some healthy debating starting. It is great. Many of you are writing about similar topics, but from a different viewpoint. Use that to your advantage. Take what you are learning, and bring it into a discussion that you can have with others about what they have written. Not in a confrontational way, but in the same way you would have a discussion during a talk.
Keep up the good work, and keep thinking. There is no bell in this class to tell you that you are done learning.
