Welcome to the Uthink Blog for HIST 3822: United States in the 20th Century since 1945. Look below the fold ("read more") to look into why I'm choosing to use this tool in teaching this course! Do you have any ideas or thoughts you'd like to share about the idea of having a class blog?
More and more, social interaction in the modern world has utilized a web of new technologies that redefine the relationship between people and with older structures of power. The Blog (short for "web log") has become an integral part of how society now communicates ideas: it facilitates communication, makes political and cultural processes more interactive--in short it has changed how people view their world.
So, I got one. Now this class has a venue to share ideas, post thoughts, even share assignments! Thoughts?
