I’ve been reading Cameron Reilly’s blog again (its a dirty habbit, I’ve got to stop it). Anyway, this post raises some interesting issues. Like a lot of people I don’t live in my home town so I do have alot of close interactions with my family. We normally catch up every few weeks or so over the telephone and maybe once a year in person.
Blogs certainly seem to be proving their worth as a marketing tool with hot news spreading through a virus through blogspace. It’ll be interesting to see how blogs serve as a way of keeping families in touch.
Thought: I wonder what would happen if we encouraged school students to keep an open log of their thoughts about their studies that was accessible to teachers and parents where they could ask questions. Parents and teachers could then read the blog entries to help identify ways to help the student learn.
