There are so many things that I have learned so far, but I think one of the most important is the fact that blogging gives us the chance to connect with people in a way that not much else does. As Bogdan wrote in a comment to a previous post of mine, "it feels good to know someone's reading your ramblings, doesn't it?" It really does.
I think that I can already see the possibilitites -- some of them at least -- for blogging in my classes. Individual blogs and group blogs. And it's only the first week! Imagine what I'll be able to do after six!
