Although blogs (web logs) were once only a reverse chronological diary of thoughts and observations, today’s blogs are so much more. First of all, the vast amount of aggregatible content has brightened a once text-heavy presentation. Images, videos, graphics, links and audio tracks have made the once static blog a living document chronicling a point in time.
Second, the current blogging tools allow for a fairly rich exchange of ideas and feedback. Although we do not have the time to monitor the blog on a daily basis, we will be adding posts throughout the month, answering questions, and engaging in dialog with readers as time permits.
It is our hope that the Science 2.0 blog will expand and enrich the topics of the print article in The Science Teacher as well as provide a venue to link into the worlds of our readers. This is a two-way street and so we encourage the sharing of your wisdom by posting comments.
