Technology & Identity Research Blogging: Winter 2009

This week, the students in my New Technologies of Identity class will begin their research blogging assignment.

The course itself is concerned with the way that we construct our identities differently in an online environment — so writing on this blog gives us a great opportunity to test out how our voice as writers is transformed by the genre of blogging. Since the students have already written a proposal about their topic and given a presentation, this is a fresh medium for them to explore.

The assignment itself asks students to post a blog entry that focuses on their assessment of a specific source, interview, of survey results, or even key moments/encounters/epiphanies in their research process. All the students are focusing on some aspect of technology or digital culture, which should keep the blog posts interesting.
