CCK08: Instructional Design
I am also very interesting in the practical application of the ideas of networks in the "formal class" and I see also in the blogs a very good tool for that. I want to show us a little schema of 4 differents uses of blogs for the courses, it is in my CCK08 blog It is made with "paint", that means not very impresive ; ) But I think that can be interesting.
In the past I use blogs like I describe in model A: An only teachers Blog for all the group, but this year I try to practice some new "connectivist ideas" and I start with model B: Each student have his/her own blog. Now I am in model C: An internal network of students and teacher Blogs and try to implement the model D: An open network of Blogs with all possibles external nodes.
