The next article I read was about a school in Newport, England using e-learning via Twitter. A few weeks ago I would have never thought that Twitter could be used for learning. Whenever I have used Twitter in the past it has been to communicate with friends and joke around. I saw Twitter as a way to communicate, meet new people, and to stay up to date on breaking news of any kind. The Newport school is taking education to another level with e-learning. Denise Richards the head teacher of the Newport school is the genius and leader behind their new e-learning movement. She wants to further the education her students and keep them informed. This keeps the departments and faculty in sync and up to date with their teaching techniques. E-learning is a great way to keep up with the times.
I have heard about blogs and probably read a few in my life but this is my first blog ever. A Blog
is kind of like an online diary that other people around the world can read. Blogs can be personal, professional, and many other things. They are a good way to express oneself and also get your message out there. Blogs can be written by one author or co-written by multiple authors. Wordpress.com is a popular website where you can create a blog or a website. That's all I have for my blog today but I will be back next week with some new information and my opinions.
