When I think of blogging and student blogs, I have the vision of what it could be in mind...global connections...documentation of a learning journey...transmedia "writing" and exploration...reflective learning... Multi-layered connected thinking through hyperlinks and media....

I speak at cross purposes, when colleagues, other educators or parents simply "hear" the word blog which might mean a place where they copy and paste written text that used to be on a piece of paper.

You are right, this is a great lesson in the power of words and the memory of the Internet. I stress that every post must be calculated for the unforeseen reaction.

We adapt new technologies before we acquire the wisdom to use them properly. That's been true throughout human history, and it's still true today. Everything new comes with a cost - I believe Dr. Turkle just wants us to remember that.
