Thanks for the name of the gelato place in Florence. It was delicious!
I like the idea of blogs and am brainstorming ways to incorporate blogs into my anthropology courses. I can certainly see a role for blogs in my Writing Intensive courses. For my non-Writing Intensive courses, possibly switching from forums to blogs could be productive. Some concerns:
-How does turnitin.com (preventing plagiarism) align with edublogs?
-Do students write more informally with blogging rather than scholarly/academic writing?
