Get Started - Create Your Own Blog
2016/02/25


As noted in today's webcast, participants are asked to contribute with comments in their own blog. You can create a blog very easily in WordPress.com and it's free ( pick the free option!). This site tells you how to get started quickly and easily.

Note that if you already have a blog, that will work just as well. In either case, we will ask that you use the #NRC01PL tag in the title of your blog post - that way we'll know the comment was intended for this course, and not for your Aunt Mary.

@LuisLopez_Cano: @JohnMackness #NRC01PL I think we need something different today, specially from early stages of education.Inspiration>commitment>direction (Thu Feb 25 17:54:31)

@JohnMackness: @LuisLopez_Cano #NRC01PL 'inspire' sounds vague.Teachers can set direction, provide some resources, an incentive and monitor what happens. (Thu Feb 25 17:00:25)

@LuisLopez_Cano: @JohnMackness #NRC01PL I'd say 'inspire', specially when learners are unsure of what they want, a very common condition today :-) (Thu Feb 25 16:24:01)

@JohnMackness: #NRC01PL How can learners 'do the learning' by themselves? Teachers must provoke learning (Thu Feb 25 16:04:58)
