Blogging identities

Thanks so much for your quotes from James Paul Gee's book What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy in your "Educational Blogging: A Writer's Place" paper because they are intriguing for the work that Michael and I are doing on creating online identities, competent participants, and projecting oneself into a specific community. I will have to get that book and read what Gee has to say. I'll come back to this when I know more.

By the way, I think there are two different ways to understand the word "remediation." In composition work from the 1980's - such as Mike Rose's Lives on the Boundary -- remediation referred to remedy and remedial, as in courses for basic writing. Now, we use "remediation" to refer to moving from one medium to another - from, say, a book to a movie to a TV series.

Hi April,
I'd like to post to your blog, and not just comment--but I don't know how. Obviously there's a way since others have done this.

Can you tell me?

Lisa,

April has to send you an invite to join the blog - and then you can post to it like you would to "The Writing Way."

Thanks, Michael. April sent me the invitation--she'd sent one before but I must have accidentally deleted. So now I can post! Now all I need to do is to think of something interesting to say......
