Communities of Practice: Using Blogs to Increase Collaboration
Byington, Teresa A.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v46 n5 p280-291 May 2011
A community of practice provides a forum for professionals to exchange ideas and discuss concerns related to the profession. Within this forum, technology can eliminate many of the constraints face-to-face communities of practice encounter by providing a convenient and highly interactive environment. A description of how to set up an online community of practice using blogs is described. Blogging can support professional learning by giving teachers a platform for interacting and collaborating with other professionals. The steps for creating a blog are given. (Contains 6 tables and 3 figures.)
