Ascilite 2010 – Sydney

It is the last day of the Ascilite conference and I find myself in the presentation that motivates me.

Ponderers, Sloggers, Slackers and More: Understanding the profiles of student bloggers to help promote academic self-regulation – Mark McMahon

Mark offers some blogger profiles:

  • the Slogger Blogger – demonstrating volitional control;
  • the Worker Blogger – demonstrating cognitive strategy formation and application;
  • the Eager Blogger – demonstrating motivation;
  • the Ponderer Blogger – demonstrating the reflection inherent in self-monitoring
  • the Bragger Blogger – demonstrating high self-concept; and
  • the Uber Blogger – demonstrating a high level of metacognition.
  • I found his presentation informative, animated and motivating.
