The power of collaborative learning

#blogsync a monthly hub for educational blogging

Leave a comment


What is #blogsync?

#blogsync involves educational bloggers from all walks of life who opt in, on a monthly basis, to writing a blog entry on our selected topic. As the blog entries are finished, links to them are posted here – until the end of the cycle, at which time the group of responses are archived under that month’s topic.

Who can join?

Anyone at all can sign up for #blogsync – you don’t have to be a teacher – and we encourage a diversity of viewpoints. Whether you are here simply to follow and read the monthly #blogsync or whether you are interested in contributing, be aware that this is a voluntary collective action. No one person controls it or determines its agenda. It’s simply a point of coalescence for a group of educators who are passionate about getting on with the job in the best ways possible!

How does it work?

  • Every month a topic is decided. For example, June 2014’s  #blogsync asks the question: What is the Best Place for testing in our schools? and starts with ‘The Assessment Uncertainty Principle’ #blogsync by Tom Sherrington
  • Bloggers “sign up” to write on this topic by the deadline (30 June 2014)
  • Everyone blogging as part of that month’s #blogsync advertises the links to each others’ entries
  • blogsync.edutronic.net acts as a co-ordinating hub, advertising the topics and the blogs written under each month’s heading.
