Using Blogs to Enhance Learning Online

“Narrate, Curate, Share.” I believe these three imperatives underlie some of the most important aspects of an educated citizen’s contributions to the human record. And in my experience, blogging offers a uniquely powerful way of becoming a self-aware learner in the process of making those contributions. “Narrate, Curate, Share” is the framework in place for the upcoming fall semester as the Virginia Tech Center for Innovation in Learning partners with Tech’s new Honors Residential College to bring 21st-century innovation to the tradition of residential learning with a program-wide blogging initiative. Our goal is to enrich each student’s individual learning, as well as to help the living-learning example of the Honors Residential College to influence and inspire the entire university. We wanted the rich individuality of each student’s voice to be able to sound within a networked conversation that could scale across many contexts. “Narrate, Curate, Share” gave us the framework we needed to conceptualize and articulate these goals.
