During Weeks 4 – 7 of the Global 2 Challenge we will be looking at the opportunities that blogging offers teaching and learning, under the four strategies of Connecting, Communicating, Collaborating and Learning Collectively. For further reading refer to the white paper: Understanding Virtual Pedagogies for Contemporary Teaching and Learning. The web has made it much easier to publish information. Blogging in particular is quick, easy and free to do. Anyone can easily publish content in text, audio, video and other multimedia formats. Global2 Challenge
