Before starting any blogging in the classroom we would have to go through safety and etiquette when using the internet.
I am gradually realising the the many benefits of blogging in the classroom. When it was originally put to me I wondered what the point was as many of the blogs I had read were about people’s everyday life- how could that be relevant? After watching clips and reading teachers websites for using blogs, I have found many reasons including:
- tracking writing progress
- writing for an audience which makes it meaningful
- connecting with people globally which opens up their learning
- expressing their learning and thoughts
