Parents’ reasons for home schooling are as varied as their children. A post I wrote about video games is part of this carnival.
In the blogosphere, a “carnival” is a collection of links, usually contributed by participants, and then publicized on the blogs of those participants. Usually the role of organizing the carnival rotates, so that everybody benefits from the editor’s work, but nobody is burdened with that task repeatedly. While carnivals typically aren’t very selective — that is, anyone who wants to be part of it is usually included — since participants typically select their best recent post related to the subject, the links one finds in a carnival are usually pretty good.
I’ve been having my students posts weblog portfolios of their own work, but for future classes I’m going to think about how I might incorporate a blogging carnival.
