This blog has been created as a way for our class, Web Publishing and Social Media, to share our thoughts, and share with the community. Your first two assignments are to:
1. Subscribe to the RSS feed for this site. This will automatically download the content I post to this site to a RSS Reading software. You can check out this site for more on RSS feeds:
2. Please read both articles about Web 2.0 on Angel and the Web 2.0 articles at the link below.
And these articles about the difference between blogging and journalism.
3. Write two different articles about Web 2.0, each 500 - 1,000 words. One article should be journalistic, looking at Web 2.0 from a variety of viewpoints, analyzing the facts and presenting them in an organized fashion. The second article should be from a personal point of view. Write about how Web 2.0 will affect you and your community. Both posts should include links to new information about Web 2.0 that you discuss in your articles. Once finished, post the best of the 2 articles to your blog. You must post an image with a caption giving the website the photo is from to accompany the article you post to your blog. Submit the second article in word format to the drop box on Angel. Finally, post a comment here about how and why you chose which article to post. This should be completed by Saturday, June 2th at 1PM
Over the weekend, you should read your fellow student blogs, found in the Student Blog link list on the right side of the screen. You must comment on at least 3 blogs. Comments should discuss the article the student wrote and what you think about their interpretation of Web 2.0. Each comment should be at least a paragraph long and add to the discussion. "Great blog" is not a valid comment. Comments must be posted by 10:30AM Monday, June 4th.
