011. Exploring Blogging Questions

In the class we've begun a wiki, which is something that anyone and everyone can edit. Well, ours is a wiki of blogging questions and rules. Today, I'm supposed to be picking out a rule and figuring out how to answer them or how to react to them.

The question of choice?

7. What would happen with the class when you compare different maturity levels in a large high school, compared to a smaller, less populated high school?

Well, that's kinda hard to answer, but at the same time it isn't. It's hard in the fact of comparing maturity levels, since the level of maturity differs from person to person; you could meet a thirteen year old who acts twenty-five, or a thirty year old who's maturity level is of a ten year old. It's strange.
But, you can compare the probability of blog usage in a small school compared to a large school.
I go to high school of 100 students as I previously explained. It's easier to compare in a fact that it's workable in both enviroments.
In the school of 100, you have smaller classes, with a lot more trust, and sometimes a higher maturity level. When you compare it to another school, say a University, it also works.
I've found a lot of different places that use blogs in their programs. Not just from the U.S.A., but from Canada too (Yay Canada! It's where I'm from).
I think the most amazing one I found, was the Blogging University for people to attend. So really, blogging in a small group is just as easy as blogging in a big group. Although I still think that the smaller group would be easier; in a sense of both being able to trust the students, and monitor the things that happen in the blogs.

Another question is kind of arising now...

Who uses blogs, and why? Does it expand beyond the classroom and personal uses?

Yes. It does. For example, the
Blogging University I mentioned before, is for people in the higher positions in the workforce. There's also a small business blog.

I hope to further expand on this, but we'll see.

This begs the question, what is "maturity." In lots of adult jobs, the best thing to do is keep your mouth shut, your head down, and at least appear to do what you're told. That's something you'll learn in a big school. Is that more "mature" behavior? Is that mature citizenship?
