The Blogosphere Taiwanese Weblogs
popular In 2005
Technatori.com indexed 21.9 million blogs in its database with approximately 80,000 new blogs created each day.
December of 2006, Technorati.com indicated over 55 million weblogs.
By the end of 2010, 85% of learning institutions integrate multimedia computer devices on campus when 36% schools in the U.S. are Internet access deficient. Technology in
Systems Specifically, 48% of classrooms include an LCD or DLP projector, 28% incorporate interactive whiteboards and over 60% encompass digital cameras. (Holburn, 2010) 2.0 As of March 2010,
we have access to
1,000,000,000,000 web pages,
65,000 iPhone apps,
10,500 radio stations,
5,500 magazines,
200 or more cable
TV channels.  2.9 billion email accounts exist worldwide 25% are corporate accounts and only 1.9 billion people use e-mail globally. About 294 billion e-mails are sent each day ending with a total of 107 trillion emails sent 89% of all emails were considered spam.
21.4 million new websites created
255 websites on the internet as of December 2010.
(Rosales, 2011) Social Media in 2010 100 million users sent a total of 25 billion tweets on Twitter.
Facebook recruited 250 million new members = 600 million .
20 million Facebook applications are installed each day on average
the United States accounts for 30% of FB users, the remaining 70% exist outside the U.S. (Cradler, Bridgeforth) In 2010... Studies report that students that actively use Facebook obtain “a full grade point lower than those of non-users.” A professor construed that in her course, students using a laptop in class produce an 11% grade decline that students taking hand written notes. The average teenager sends about 2,272 texts at minimum each month. Social Media
Learning Using Weblogs as an Educational Tool Managed adaption of the Blogosphere phenomenon will help facilitate student knowledge, retention and motivation. The infrastructure and ease of accessibility, goal orientation and collaborativeness, and adaptability and integration, are important factors to utilizing the Blog as a successful tool in an educational environment. Accessibility Content is categorized by labeling and tagging, and readers can be informed of new content in the blog by RSS feed or email, making it easier for blogs to act as a subset in a larger working environment.
With public and campus resources implementing computer labs and media centers, students can access internet and download various blog files including audio, text or video files at any location The weblog is a place “where students share their ideas on a particular topic, discuss with others and explore databases and application available online to supplement or present it in a simplified and easy to understand ways.” (Lawangen, 2011) Adaptation Adaptation of learning styles enables students to connect, experiment, and explore learning by utilizing available
online resources. “Blogs expand instructional time by providing teachers with user friendly online format to reinforce strategies, introduce new topics and concepts, review important class points, review for tests and provide enrichment.” Podcasts Integrated into PowerPoint
presentations during lectures;
provide students with narration
and visuals of key concepts.
Vodcasts allow teachers to
extend and differentiate their
teaching instructions. Vodcasts Collaborativeness The advantage of the WeBlog is that it eliminates the restriction of students contained in their regional learning environment by linking students to a system in which they can question experts. Lawangen, 2011 Collaborative learning encourages critical thinking skills by students actively participating in sharing of ideas and defending their claims. The sharing of ideas and the Blog
acting as a feedback loop connects information with course concepts. (Windchitl, 1999) Blogging Successful by Enhancing Storytelling As a learning module, “the use of storytelling is a way of connecting, knowing, and a way to facilitate the processes of nursing education, practice and research. Well-designed,
well-told stories can help others in learning from past situations to respond more effectively in future situations.”  “According to pedagogical research in cooperative learning, one of the most effective resources for the cognitive restructuring of information is for students to explain it to someone else.” (Slavin, 1995) The constructivist approach to learning states that educational environments and learning should be carried out collaboratively, the educator should interchange from “being an active knowledge transmitter to an observing facilitator.” Spanish Farsi
(Persian) French Russian Web (Colombo & Colombo, 2007) (Windchitl, 1999)
