Make this interview with your peer and some teacher using wikis. Document the interview and reflect it together with your peer.
Conduct the Interview - During this week you should aim to interview your chosen professional / educator on their use of blogs as a tool for assessment. Conduct this interview in whichever way is most appropriate (face-to-face, telephone, email, online chat etc) and document the findings together with your peer.
Write Blog Post - Following the interview reflect on the process and the answers and write a reflective blog post. Read and comment on your peers blog.
Interesting Blogs Commentary - Will Richardson's expression is worth thinking aout: By its very nature, assigned blogging in schools cannot be blogging. It's contrived. No matter how much we want to spout off about the wonders of audience and readership, students who are asked to blog are blogging for an audience of one, the teacher. When the semester ends, "students drop blogging like wet cement." Richardson wants to teach students to write with passion, but he notes: I can't let them do it passionately due to the inherent censorship that a high school served Weblog carries with it. Is assessement disturbing learning with blogging? Could it be vice versa and how?
Things you really need to learn is not so positive towards assessement: "Your school will try to teach you facts, which you'll need to pass the test but which are otherwise useless. In passing you may learn some useful skills, like literacy, which you should cultivate." What kind of assessent we need in education?
