Educational Experiments in the Blog

For two reasons, i have realized, i need to document my experiments with blogs in particular and the digital space in general. One, when journalists approach me for comments either on using internet-enabled technologies or digital condition, most of the time I am unable to pools my thoughts together or recall my experiments. I always wished I had some writing which I could forward to them which would make my life and their life a bit easier. Two, more importantly, the need to research on education in digital environment would necessitate documenting numerous experiments that emerge at the intersection of my helplessness in connecting to my students, their inability to connect to the present educational system, the historical baggage and the present compulsions of the state, and educational institutions, and my desire to harvest the promise of the digital.

At least for once this will be post-in-progress. I will keep writing as and when ideas compel me to write or revise.

While I remember attempting (in my UG) to note down your lecture notes and post them online :), I was wondering, from your experiments with some (or all of these methods), if any of them have proven to be more successful or effective than others with students.
