Education Panel: Ewan's Notes
Some really scratchy notes for later - read the posts before this to see why these questions are being asked. Maybe you can help me out with some answers?!?!
Is it all about writing blogs? What about reading them?
Who teaches people how to read blogs?
Is it required?
Is MSNSpaces populated by teens writing constructively?
Socialisation: when do we move from getting used to something to using it for a defined purpose? If Yahoo can play around with their new tools why can't we?
Why is it important to "blogucate"?
What about blogs only being another tool? Do we need to go into so much depth?
Why do blogs need this attention: are they not a simple way of communicating?
The adult blogging world - the kids' blogging world - two different blogospheres?
The balance of bottom-up and top-bottom: can we aim for Adriana's matrix?
The need for 'sophisticated simplicity' - we want all the tricks but not all at once.
Managers (teachers?) don't mind problems they cannot solve but they hate solutions they don't understand. True?
