Blogging How We Learn

Phil Bell’s started up a blog tracking news and research about how people learn.

The blog provides a stream of information on how people learn. The focus is on cognitive, sociocultural, developmental, and neurobiological research and related news.

This is great. Not only because of its focus — there aren’t a lot of blogs that track issues related to learning sciences — but also because of its volume. Lots of stripped-down posts to interesting content. The last blog that filled that niche in the learning sciences was probably John Rakestraw’s LTSeek.

I think Phil’s wise to avoid dressing up entries too much; in my experience, the intellectual effort that demands, even if minimal, can only reduce posting volume. This looks like a classic send them away to bring them back blog, and blogs of that type don’t need long entries.
