EduBlogs, revisited

I'd like to refer you to my previous post on blogging in education.

The Beauty of EduBlogs-April 7, 2006

Now I'd like to ironically share that last week I attended a training (sponsored by my district) on how to use blogs, wikis, and podcasts in education. Nearly one year after my post, all of my predictions about this new technology tool have come to fruition. I'm not saying I've earned a prophet star or anything. It is just frustrating that even I in my feeble mind could see this coming a mile away and still we were afraid to use it. My point here is that we have wasted precious time with perfecting the use of blogs in education, and we'll waste even more the next time some hot new thing comes along. Will we ever learn?
