Working with Simon Buckingham Shum (OU) and Ruth Deakin Crick (University of Bristol), I took part in workshop that was, in part, intended to explore the possibilities for a blogging tool to support enquiry-based learning. Progress during the workshop was recorded in a blog set up for the occasion.
This work led to the development of EnquiryBlogger. This project, funded by the Learning Futures programme in 2010-2011, tuned a blogging tool to scaffold authentic enquiry-based learning. Run jointly by the Open University’s Knowledge Media Institute, and University of Bristol’s Centre for Systems Learning & Leadership, EnquiryBlogger provides a set of plug-ins which extend one of the world’s most popular, robust, open source blogging platforms, WordPress (multisite edition, enabling admin of many child blogs under a parent blog).
