So long "Paper and Pencil?"

The front page of the Daily Illini features two articles on blogs. "Who's Behind Local Blogs" focusing on the local public and "Teacher Uses Blogs instead of Paper and Pencil" looks at changes in education.

The article about the local efforts even features Prairie Biker, who we link to on our "Friends of Donuts" list.

I think blogs are a natural extension of Blackboard, WebCT, Moodle, and other online instructional systems. When you toss in new innovations from Apple in Digital Video, Audio Podcasting, and Video Podcasting.... plus movements in RSS... the future's so bright I gotta wear shades.

I am really looking forward to iLife6. Our students and faculty have been doing great things with the earlier versions. This version 6 looks really awesome.

Good thing education is embracing modern technology. As long as they spell correctly, use proper grammar, and remember how to use punctuation. Being able to submit a paper in l337-speak would not be a good sign.

Language, like technology, is evolutionary and is subject to 'refinement' based on usage, need, and cultural attitudes.
