Last week Audrey Watters wrote a blog post that asked Is Twitter the Best Option for Online Professional Development? Now I love Twitter (follow me there @AlfredTwo) and I learn a lot there. But while there is some good conversation going on there at times what I get the most value from on twitter are links to longer writing.
I learn the most online from reading blogs. Especially from the blogs of other computer science teachers. I have a Computer Science Education Blog Roll that I update when I find good blogs. Some of those blogs haven’t been updated in a while though. I really wish more of you would blog. I have a lot to learn.
Audrey concluded her post with “I wonder if, in fact, "the future of professional development" might be a "return to blogging."” I say some of us never left. For the rest of you, jump in the water (and the learning) is fine.
