Forgive me, blog readers, for I have sinned. It has been 6 months since my last entry. But I've been busy helping my students work on their research projects and blogs and plan to (upon being granted permission) link student work on their hypertext research projects to this site, as well. Their projects are due Monday and Wednesday in their respective classes, so within that week, they will be posted. Meanwhile, I've been contemplating how and why podcasting might be employed. Quite a few more of my students live and breathe by their IPods.
Also, I'd like to know what kinds of discussions educators have about the use/citation of wikipedia entriess in their students' research projects. More and more entries are becoming quite credible, and I hate to dismiss that obvious area of research. Just as we baby-boomers used to (or at least I did) pore over our World Book Encyclopedias and learn a lot that way, this generation seems to get most of their information from the web and wikipedia info.
