When is a Blog More Than Just a Blog?



Riddle me this Batman; When is a blog more than just a blog? Blogs can, and in my opinion, should be an essential component of connected learning. Your blog can become more than just a blog when it becomes a digital portfolio, or a podcast, or an eBook. I just provided the "what", the following three resources will help you get started with the "how".




  1. Blog as ePortfolioUsing Blogger Pages to Create an ePortfolio - Dr. Helen Barrett
  2. Blog as PodcastPodcastomatic - Convert your favorite blog into a podcast
  3. Blog as eBook3 Easy Ways to Turn Your Class Blog into an Ebook - Educational Technology & Mobile Learning



Why would you want to use or change your blog in these ways? There are several reasons, including; greater accessibility, an ongoing project, a culminating project, reflective practice, learning new technologies, and sharing learning in new ways, How do you see these features helping your learners grow?
