How many times do you come across someone willing to announce to the world the mistakes they have made?
Mistakes made in their classroom?
Little boo-boos, yes, maybe, but sharing several BIG mistakes?
I was struck by an article about blogging I read recently that was all about just that. (see citation at the end of this post/no link available)
The authors, all instructors at a teaching college, stated that they made several assumptions when introducing blogging into their university courses for pre-service teachers:
..."that this generation of tech-savvy kids would enjoy this particular medium for discussing their reading."
... there was little need for direct instruction
... blogging would appeal to the wanna-be teachers who would be incorporating technology into their future classroom
