EdReach blog posts are separated into four columns, Ed Spin, Ed Views, Consensus, and Ask Ed. Many different people write for these columns, but they adhere to a certain idea.
EdSpin is simply an Ed blogger’s take on the news of the day or the week. A prominent policy change, Bill Gates donating $1 billion dollars to an educational cause, or a company like Google changing their policy towards education might be some examples of what you see here.
EdView is more of an opinion column- a letter to the editor- so to speak. This is a blogger’s opinion about how news, ideas, or a Web tool might affect the classroom or education as a whole.
An EdConsensus post is actually a multi-post from a panel of educational bloggers. One person might offer their two cents- then 3 other bloggers will weigh in with differing opinions. Then the audience weighs in.
Open letters are EdReach contributors sounding off to particular companies or educators, in an effort to bring attention to particular issues or topics that may be contrary to the mission of “taking education forward.” This is an opportunity to put things under a microscope, and drive the conversation to a new, positive conclusion.
