Blogging 101 Motivates Students

If you can't run your own blog, it may be time to go back to Grade 1....Much of the discussion I had this week at the ASTD conference was the changing behavior of learners..now I must say that 30% of ASTD members are over 50..so my topic of the WEB2.0 paradigm shift was not totally embraced by all (but I also must point out that many baby boomers did get it...the cool ones)...like “why do we need to change...everything works now”...but the issue is that the web2.0 paradigm is already embraced by a large segment of web users..Chalkboard5.but every year the skill gap will close as new generations enter the workforce...and all these folks will expect to interact with learning in the same manner.I thought  I would post this article I found on 1st GradersAt Moose Jaw's Westmount Elementary School, and an innovative new program to teach  six- and seven-year-olds how to blog.

Look out world!

"...now I must say that 30% of ASTD members are over 50..." OK I am one of those baby-boomers that you met this week! BUT I am all ready for the new generation of training! Bring it on! To do that I would appreciate it if you would share your PPT program that you ran for your presentation. The one ASTD had available was SO different! I understand if you couldn't post it on the blog so pop me an email with it instead. Thanks for an excellent presentation.

good point...note that I have reflected my blog to note some Baby Boomers do get it!
