Internet Research 6.0: papers about learning with blogging

Mathemagenic has a good review and summary of a bounch of papers presented during the AOIR conference that target learning and blogging.

My selection of the selection:

– Trena Paulus & Vanessa Dennen, Weblogs as spontaneous mentoring mechanism for academics – very good overview of “Profworld” academic blogging community (qualitative, with examples) and discussion on how mentoring takes place there (really hope that paper or slides will be online)

– Jang Hyun Kim,
Blog as an oppositional medium?: A Semantic Network Analysis on the Iraq War Blogs

Ericka Menchen Trevino, Blogger motivations: Power, pull, and positive feedback (full text is here) – a study on blogging motivations between college students. I was especially fascinated by the framing the results on negotiating anonymity and Ericka was very nice to blog it

Trena Paulus, Vanessa Dennen, The next generation of research methods for online collaborative learning environments
