What’s are trade-offs?
I’ve not heard anything from students about using blogs in their courses. I’ve heard a whole lot about students’ about their dislike of discussion boards in blackboard and assignments that seem more like busywork to them vs. reflective assignments.
I have not used either tool in my courses and I don’t blog, tweet, or use discussion boards (yes, I’m a boomer). I feel a lot of social pressure to begin using at least one of these tools in my courses.
I’d appreciate some users’ perspectives.
