    • Mobile Blogging - A Course for Educators

      My name is McLean McIntosh and I am a lecturer in the Further Education Sector working in Scotland.  I teach literacy, numeracy and ICT skills.  
      This is an image of McLean McIntosh, the course author.
      I created this course in December of 2020 in order to share with people some of my research in Blogging and Mobile Technology.  It is my belief that when used together these strategies can be used to enable literacy practitioners to be more culturally responsive in their learning and teaching practice.
      This course explores how aspects of digital pedagogy, the affordances of mobile technology and the open educational practice of blogging can be combined to enhance the learning and teaching experience.  
      This course provides some underpinning theory, and a place to discuss and exchange of ideas with other educators.  This course is not intended to provide you with specific resources on how to blog, nor does it provide a toolkit on how to use blogging with your students. 
      Rather, this course is intended to answer some questions you might have about the benefits and challenges of mobile blogging while stimulating your own creativity.
      This course was intended originally for lecturers working in the Further Education sector in Scotland.  However, it may have a wider appeal and could be of value to educators and trainers in a range of settings formal and informal settings.

    Thorough investigation of blogging

    This course has some excellent content for masters in education students, current teachers and would be bloggers. Some excellent quotable content that expands your knowledge of the pedagogical principles behind blogging. The video at the end will get you thinking about how you would use a blog if you wanted to try it yourself
