Scott McLeod asks us to answer the question, “What’s wrong with the Edublogosphere?” He promises in the near future that we’ll be given the chance to respond to the question, “What’s right about the edublogosphere?” and I do have thoughts on that, which I’ll eventually share.
I think the biggest difficulty is that there are no prominent student bloggers writing about education, of which I’m aware. There isn’t a vast crowd of students telling us what we’re doing right, what we’re doing wrong, or even if we’re going in the right direction.
If someone has some student writers, who write about their educational experiences, to recommend — please pass them my way.
For that matter, I think it’s important that we start encouraging our students to look at, and respond, to some of the big names in educational blogging, so that we begin to get a sense of who really is on the right track to understanding what “the kids these days” are all about.
