Abstract

Increasing use of content syndication for subscribing to blogs is a starting point for engaging students in the current trends and issues in education. Once students have identified educational blogs and subscribed to them through their Bloglines aggregator, they are ready to begin the reflection process. This paper will focus on the processes of setting up a content syndication aggregator, identifying target blogs, and providing scaffolding cues to guide the students' reflection processes - definitions and a short history of these tools will be provided. This ongoing study involves undergraduate and graduate students in the Curriculum and Instruction department at Illinois State University.
