This chapter reflects on recent experience in guiding students in the use of Weblogs as formative assessment in two university courses. Taking the social constructionist framework for learning as a starting point, the chapter reflects specifically on the problem of integrating the literacies and social communication skills that are peculiar to effective blogging into the preexist-ing "elaborated systems" of higher education.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
