16 Must Read Articles For Bloggers

YouNiversity: Henry Jenkings Toughts

I was portraited in GVO as an Latin American voice. Proud to be in Global Voices Online now in more languages than English.

Mr. Jenkings has written an excellent post about the new configurations in media power and makes an analysis of books, articles and web applications to sustain what will it be the also new YouNiversity.

He asks: "How might media studies, the field most committed to mapping these changes as they affect modern life, be taught in a YouNiversity?"

You will have to elaborate your very own answer. Personally I think this is the spectrum for the next not century precisely but the years to come. As Jenkins puts it, "to educate such students, we don't so much need a faculty as we need an intellectual network." See how Facebooks is playing a very important roll right now and this only one example. It was created as a closed circle at the beginning but now not only college people can access it and network with those students.

"Blogs represent a powerful tool for engaging in these larger public conversations." he continues. And on purpose I am focused only in students rather than teachers because we also think that responding to wildly divergent backgrounds and expectations requires us to constantly redesign and renegotiate academic course expectations as we try to give students what they need to push themselves to the next level of personal and professional development.

Will you be part of the next YouNiversity? We are! Welcome aboard!

Search Engines Optimization

I am not an expert on this matter but I want to share what we've been talking with the webmaster of Techzilo. He's a very young man but very much interested and prepared for the next round in the Internet matters. Sumesh, was telling about SEO (News to me, not for the meaning though!) and of the things we discussed was not to link very much everything but do a relevant linking. If you start linking to everyone you blog or page might be confused as an spam farm. You know what the price is. If not it is a good time to go and read InstaBloke about Google Blog Search. No matter whether you are the new kiddo.

I am an advocate of the Open Source and I was reading carefully this post about the Open Source Billonaries. Way long ahead of what we would like to say or comment. Go and follow this interesting conversation all by yourself!

Some of you are asking me, why I am not in the business of blogs. I mean why I am not making money with this blog. Take care easy, I might losing money right now but in the meantime TonNet is getting more worth than ever! So, give TonNet some time and you will hear of him not at the level of the Best Bloggers Practitioners but rolling money in a way not everyone is prepared or trained for. Learn to be generous as LOUI$$!

Weekend Round Up

I'm sorry I haven't been blogging lately. I have so much going on in 'life' that I don't know what to write about here. Grandmother's pending departure has been such a blow to our lives and we've been doing a good bit of effort to called them and be updated with everything going on back there in our mother country.

Once in a while I read interesting report about progress of immigrants and makes me feel proud to be an immigrant, too. You don't even know my resume but you might be distort to think we are not even close to a superior education.

Anyways, proud to present these educational bloggers: IB a Math Teacher, Buckhorn Road and Technology for Teachers. Pays to visit them.

I am not writing and posting for money. The credit I deserve is sharing experiences and knowledge. I am not saying I am not thinking in any ways to make money online but definitely every blogger with enough standards should be set himself expensive. What do you think? We will really appreciate your input in this matter.

Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. 'We are educating people out of their creativity', Robinson says.
