Blogs
There are a numerous educators worldwide writing about their experiences with new technologies. Some are theorists, some are practitioners, and some are a combination of both. If you are new to Web 2.0, a good place to begin your understanding is with blogs written by those involved in education. Reading what people are doing at the grassroots level can be inspiring and can help encourage you to dip your feet into the waters of new ways of learning. Some of you may even start contributing to the conversations by leaving comments on people's blogs. This is a great way of establishing connections and helping to cultivate your digital identity.
