Understanding Student Self-Disclosure Typology through Blogging
Harper, Vernon B., Jr.; Harper, Erika J.
Qualitative Report, v11 n2 p251-261 Jun 2006
Significant research indicates that student self-disclosure plays an important role in the learning experience and producing positive learning outcomes. Blogging is an increasingly popular web tool that can potentially aid educators by encouraging student self-disclosure. Both content analysis and focus groups were used to assess whether student self-disclosure reveals in descriptive, topical, and evaluative categories. The results indicate that blogging encourages student self-disclosure, and the implications of these findings are also discussed. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
