[TIPS] - Computer Teach Thyself video

http://mscronk.edublogs.org/2007/02/04/web-20-in-under-5-minutes/ (http://mscronk.edublogs.org/ )
Check out this VERY cool video that does an excellent job in walking you through the importance of the Read/Write web. VERY well done.
 
Some of the students in my grad classes have said that they don't read blogs. They don't feel that they are anything more than just one person's opinion on something, and therefore not worth the trouble.
 
I argue that it's from blogs that I am staying/becoming educated. It's from the links that others provide and from their ideas that keep me fresh. The above link is a perfect example. This was mentioned in a post
by Will Richardson here (http://weblogg-ed.com/2007/th e-machine-is-using-us/ ). That took me to the link at the top of this post. From her blogroll I found another blog with something of interest. And it goes on and on.
 
The right blogs bring you into the conversation. The conversation about your profession. It's your personal professional development.
