Blogs are important metacognition tools - Edgility

In this short video both Seth Godin (Best-Selling Author, Entrepreneur) and Tom Peters (Best-Selling Author, Management Visionary) discuss how important blogging has been for their metacognition and professional lives.

Godin explains that even if no one reads your blog "what matter is the humility that comes from writing it, what matters is the metacognition about thinking about what it is you are going to say." Peter's explains that, "no single thing in the last 15 years professionally has been more important to my life than blogging... it has changed my life, it has changed my perspective, it has change my intellectual outlook..." This short conversation supports my notion that by using tools like Blogger you become connected via the network (edge) and it increases your ability to think and respond - these Edgility tools increase your learning and innovating Edgility.

I want to thank Tony Karrer who writes a blog titled e-learning technology for posting about and directing me to this YouTube video.

Thanks for this, JIm.

I am teaching a lesson on metacognition for a final blog reflection/rhetorical analysis in my composition class after break. This will be a perfect short segment to show the class to open up discussion.
