why should we blog as teachers?

16 06 2011

It is important to blog in the classroom because so many of our students blog. The video shows just how many of the blogging world is our students! It gives the statistics of the blogging generation. Blogging connects to our students and their interests. It can help shape students writing and give them the freedom and creativity to write!

Students might not like to write in the classroom, but independently, blogging is the new tool. They can respond to things that they connect to, and they can also have people respond to them. Expressing thoughts and feelings by blogging can add a feeling of anonymity, thereby making it easier to communicate. This can be a positive way to motivate and keep kids writing.
