That's when Blake spoke up and asked, "Wouldn't it be better to create a discussion topic so that we can just place all of our links in comments? That way someone could go to just one discussion topic to see all the links. If we all make separate blog posts, someone would have to go to like 20 different blog posts to see all the links."
Everyone in the class, including me, thought Blake's suggestion made more sense than mine, so we decided Blake should make a discussion topic for us to post our links.
I like this story because Blake was able to see technology for what it really is - a means for supporting his and others' learning, and there is no one right way of using it. A blog post wasn't a wrong way of doing this, but if sharing is our objective, then a discussion thread makes more sense.
