Big Cardboard Box started in June of 2010 as a way to promote blogging toward inquiry amongst my students while blogging about the very tool that we're using: in short, a blog about blogging. My purpose is threefold: to share the process of blogging with my students (it's only fair!); to sort through my own research and ideas about blogging in general and blogging as pedagogy; and to write more, period. I'm coming from the viewpoint that blogging can be a powerful tool for inquiry. And public inquiry is powerful and motivating.
