Blogging for Success at QA



Blogging is a way to record your ideas and thoughts during the learning process. It can help you to 'think out loud' and to show that you are exploring and developing new ideas.
Blog about what you have achieved each lesson in IT. Discuss the problems you had, the ideas you came up with and the solutions you found.
You can also comment on other peoples blogs and interact with members of the class online.This may be to help them solve problems, give encouragement and suggest resources and ideas.

Are you stuck for something to write about? Try using the 'Six Thinking Hats' by Edward de Bono. Choose one or two hats and wear them when you blog.

The White Hat is cold, neutral, and objective. Take time to look at the facts and figures. This hat calls for information to be delivered.

The Red Hat represents anger (seeing red). Take time to listen to your emotions, your intuition. When wearing this hat express your emotions and feelings and share likes and dislikes.

The Black Hat is gloomy and negative. Take time to look at why this will fail. Spot the difficulties and dangers, where things might go wrong.

The Blue Hat is the color of the sky, high above us all. Take time to look from a higher and wider perspective to see whether you are addressing the right issue. Think about your thinking, why you made decisions, why you made choices.
